If you need to, you can add a commission charge to a supplier. The commission charge is set up as a percentage and can be deducted from a specific expense type, either from the gross or net amount of an invoice.  

The supplier will see a breakdown of the commission deducted on their remittance advice.

  2. Select the relevant contact (supplier) from Recent & Favourite Contacts
    1.  Alternatively, find the contact (supplier) using the Search Contacts bar in the top right
  3. Click Actions
  4. Within the dropdown menu, click Charge
  5. Click Add Commission

The landlord will only see the full amount of the invoice, and not the commission amount paid to the supplier on their landlord statement.
