Supplier payments which include charges

If your bank have charged you an amount to create a payment for an individual supplier which invariably happens when you create a fast payment or pay into a foreign currency account, the charge can be processed at the same time as the supplier payment and save you time. Using the daybook Supplier payments you can clear the full invoice value and split the amount between bank and bank charges.
You do this by processing the supplier payment as normal but then click on the Distribution box which if not showing on your entry screen click on Additional and you will see it located there. Enter the amount paid out of the bank and the difference to bank charges and apply:-

Once booked this will show the supplier invoice as cleared in full and the correct amount coming out of your bank account and the payment charge sent to bank charges.
