Suspense account

Hi Community,

I have a questions regarding suspense accounts.

My business collects funds on behalf of customers which is not in any form an income or asset to my company.

These funds are reported and paid back to my customer on a monthly base.

To what type of account should this money be reported to in sage?

  • Hi Jan

    I personally would allocate the amounts to each debtor, this way you will see who you owe money for ( these debtors would thus show on credit as you owe them money back ).

    Allocating the money to a seperate account means you would need to keep track who you owe money from an external data source like excel, rather keep it simple and allocate everything to each debtor.

    Contact me at if you require anything else.
