Topping up a float without affecting turnover

I run a payroll service and one of my clients, who is useless at admin, has an employee with an attachment of earnings order. The client has asked me to make the payments to the creditor and she will send me a float in advance so I have the funds available - i will then tell her when the funds need topping up. I don’t think this should be recorded as part of my turnover. How do I account for the payments in and out in quickfile, please? In case it matters I am not VAT registered.

You can create a balance sheet account under current liabilities, call is say “Attachment Order” and tag all money in and out to it

Thanks, that looks like it works.
