There are 2 ways of recording debtor contributions:
If the Job is a personal Part IX and Part X agreement - then you would use an alternative method here.
1. By creating a payment schedule
a. This will set up an accrual (create invoices):
DR Contributions Receivable
CR Debtor contributions (mandatory)
b. Then receive payments:
CR Contributions Receivable (allocated to each invoice)
The entire amount of the contribution is brought to the balance sheet so you can recognise the financial effect of the expected revenue.
In this case you need to record receipts through the accounts receivable.
Since the AER is cash-based only the payments received will be reported.
a. Setting up the contribution Schedule
Create Contributions Receivable Schedule
The contribution appears under the Financial → Asset tab.
b. Record receipts through the accounts receivable.
Click on Transactions > Accounts Receivable > Receive Debtor Payment
Or from within the Cash at bank account you are receiving the funds into by opening the account and selecting Receive Debtor Payment
Select the Debtor from the Customer drop down list. If you enter the amount received the system will allocated the amount across the invoice lines earliest to latest date. Or you can tick the invoices that have been paid. Save and Exit
2. Receive each payment directly to the debtor contributions revenue account
Either from the Cash at Bank account or from Transactions Menu select Receive Payment.
Code the Account to the Asset Realisation Account - Debtor Contributions (mandatory) or Debtors Contributions (Voluntary).
