Payments to a monthly Trade Account

Hi, hope I can word this clearly!

I have a credit account with TradeUK (incorporates companies owned by the Kingfisher group B&Q, Screwfix, Tradepoint etc)

I make purchases throughout the month and use the TradeUK card account to pay for each individual purchase. Should I raise a new purchase record for each individual purchase, or raise a single monthly purchase record when I receive the monthly statement from TradeUK?

I ‘assume’ I only need to raise a monthly purchase record…

In which case, I again assume I will need to create a new supplier called TradeUK, although I’m making purchases from B&Q, Screwfix, etc


You would log purchases for each individual purchase. Obviously this is not going to match your bank which will show a single debit each month for all purchases. Is exactly the same as how you would handle a credit card in Quick File, so basically you would set the TradeUK card up as a bank account (Type = credit card), log the individual purchases as paid from this account and then when you pay down the balance, make a transfer from the current account to the TradeUK account.

Hope that helps!

Thanks Glenn,
