Reverse Posted Commission

  • There is a procedure for a user to edit/delete the completed/pending state commissions through “View Invoice Commission” screen, but in an uncertain scenario if user is unable to delete those commissions, they can use this ‘Reverse Posted Commissions’ screen. Only calculated invoice commission lines will be deleted on reversal without effecting in GL entries as the commissions were not posted.
  • Deletion of posted Invoice commissions from “View Invoice Commission” and employee commissions from “View Employee Commission” are restricted and can only be reversed through this screen as only posted state commissions are eligible for reversal.
  • Commission cannot be reversed for the invoice on which commission amount is paid to any one of the attached employees. Error message will be displayed on the screen stating “Some of the Employee commissions have been paid”.

Error Message

  • If few of the invoices which have commission and are paid on the selected invoice range then the reversal for those invoices will be skipped.
  • Reverse date should be selected for the posted date for reversed journal entries on the above screen or else today’s date will be selected by default if not selected.
  • At the time of posting commission expense journal entries, the GL accounts that were set in GL Groups/global Configuration will be considered for Reverse journal entries.
