How to write off debt (General)

posted by Dieter Simader(R), 17.04.2015, 15:18

Firstly, I am not an accountant; I'm simply using SQL Ledger to generate
and keep track of invoices. So I'm probably not using a fraction of what
it can do and (even after years of using it) I'm no expert!

So, a few years ago, I issued an invoice, which for reasons best not
discussed here, was never paid. Whenever I run the report for invoices
still due, it comes up and will I guess forever. My accountant has long
since written this off (it's only a few pounds anyway). But, it just
annoys me and doesn't rest easily on the eye. So how do I simply write off
the outstanding amount as never going to be paid?

I'm using 2.8.24, which I realise is probably well due for an upgrade.
But, I'm sure the process I'm looking for must be the same.

So how do I do it?


pay for the invoice and add an offsetting GL entry for the Bad Debt. If you don't want this to show up in a regular bank account then create a separate payment account.
