Tip: How to offset customer/supplier balances

In NetSuite when no money is being exchanged, customer/supplier balances can be offset against one another by creating a journal entry. You have to be wary of how you setup the journal. As an example if a particular customer has an open invoice and you want to offset the invoice amount against an existing outstanding bill amount you owe to the customer for goods/services supplied then go to Transactions > Financial > Make Journal Entries.

  1. Select the Accounts Receivable account, in the ‘’Credit’’ box enter the amount you want to offset.
  2. In the tax code field select a tax code that is excluded from your VAT reports (to identify the appropriate tax code you can go to Set-up > Accounting > Tax codes and check which VAT codes are ‘’Excluded from VAT reports’’).
  3. Select the name of the customer in the NAME field. This is important. If you don’t you will end up with differences between your AR control account and your AR Reports
  4. You can type in a memo for ease of reference. Click done to save the line.
  5. On the next line select the Accounts Payable account, in the ‘’Debit’’ box, again enter the amount you need to offset. In the tax code field, select the same Tax code.
  6. This time select the name of the vendor in the NAME field. Again this is important. If you don’t you will end up with differences between your AP control account and your AP Reports
  7. Once again you can type in a memo for ease of reference.
  8. Save the journal.
  9. Go to the customer record. On the transaction tab you should see the journal and the “open” invoice but the customer balance on the finance tab should now be zero.
  10. To “Close” the invoice click accept payment > tick the Invoice number that this journal relates to, and tick the newly created journal (found on the credits tab). Make sure the payment amount is zero. Save the Payment. This will mark the customer invoice “Closed”.
  11. Next go to the supplier record and click bill payment. Follow the same process as 10 above to “Close” the bill.
