Preparing for the Payment

Before creating a payable for a credit card statement balance:

  • Review the credit card statement
  • Separate any purchases already accounted for
  • Categorize the remaining purchases into accounts.

Never include any supplier purchases already accounted for by another payable i.e. any supplier purchases on credit. Only include the remaining credit card purchases.
