Re: How to handle periodic cash reciepts vs. non-periodic accounts payable?

It is a good idea.  Not necessarily strictly required for a small
business like that, but it contributes to clarity, which is a good
thing as far as I can see :-)

I handle things this way:
Prepayments are tracked in a liability account.
Overpayments are tracked in the AR account.

Best Wishes,
Chris Travers

Does he need a separate account just for the overpayment component? (I
hope not.)
