Taking commission from a supplier payment

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.  

  1. Click Contacts on the main toolbar
  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. The supplier Overview will display. Click Actions
  4. Within the dropdown menu, click Charge
  5. Click Add Commission
  6. The Add Supplier Fee For window opens
    1. Description - Edit this to a more accurate representation, if required 
    2. Charged on - Untick if the commission is charged on any expense item. Tick if there is an individual expense which the commission is to be charged
    3. Commission % - Add the total percentage to be deducted 
    4. Deduct from Gross Amount % - Untick if the percentage is to be deducted from the net amount of the expense. Tick if the percentage is to be deducted from the gross amount of the expense

    6. End Date - Leave this blank, unless the commission charge is to stop on a particular date
