Changing the Remit To on a Void Check

Issue: I completed a check run and the remit to supplier is wrong. I voided the check and tried to update the Remit To field on the payable but the field is now read-only. How can I change the remit to on a void check?

Environment: Comsense Enterprise

Resolution: You cannot change the Remit To field on a payable with a voided check. Comsense does not currently allow users to update the Remit To field after a payable is released, regardless of the check status. You must create a new payable of negative value matching the original payable, process the original and new payable via check run, and recreate the payable with the appropriate remit to supplier.

The difference between the supplier deposit and receiving payable is the distribution of the funds. It is important to complete the correct procedure to maintain an accurate general ledger. On a supplier deposit, the distribution is allocated to the prepaid payable. On a payable for a receiving, the original purchase order amount is allocated to the product in WIP or Stock and must be corrected using a non-control account.

Recreating the Payable for a Receiving

Because the receiving has already been processed with the original payable, you must create a miscellaneous payable using the:

  • Correct supplier in the Remit To field
  • Original payable amount as a positive value in the Invoice Amount field
    • I.e. Use the amount from the original payable
  • CONTRA account used in Creating a Negative Value Miscellaneous Payable
    • E.g. if you used CONTRA AP/AR for the misc. payable for a negative value, use the same one for this transaction
