Transaction Type Sample - Agency Internal Expenditure

The Internal transaction type enables you to track expenses incurred by you for a particular account. When you cannot recoup your expenses from the Debtor or the Client, you may still want to track them for the account.

An Internal transaction does not affect the Debtor's Owing or any Client financials, such as Commission or Return. It simply gives you a way to track internal expenses on an account.

The screen shot below shows the settings for the Agency Internal Expenditure Transaction Type.
