Write - off Report

During the year we write off the odd amount that has not been paid by a client.  At the end of the year we have to do a report for our accountant with a list of all amounts that have been written off.  I have to either trawl through a transaction list for the whole year to find these write-offs or remember to write them down when I do them.  Is there a report that I could print with all these write-offs on it?  Would save a lot of my time at the end of the financial year if there was!  Thank you

The only way  I find to get a detailed list of names / amounts is to export the write-off / Reduction list to Excel and trawl through it.  I know which ones are the standard reductions and then balance this to the write off amount.   This year however I am keeping an Excel list as any amount is written off to save having to do this in one go.   Sorry I am not much help.

Sorry that didn't really answer your question!  I do a billings report, export to Excel and then filter that report to entries with an amount in the Write/off / Reductions column.  Then I go through and delete the standard reduction transactions.

We have a special code called write off, then you can find it in any summary at any time

Celia - we have spoken to Frontdesk in the past and they tell me that they can run a once off report for you in regards to write off.  We lost a large amount from a contract - but was billed in tiny tiny increments and had to find it so it could be reported to fair trading... and managed to get them to do a one off report
