Credit and Debit are from the perspective of a lessor's escrow account. Credit refers to a payment to the lessor account. Debit refers to deductions from the lessor account.

Lease Payment Report

A more detailed report is provided which provides the capability to adjust the lessor payment due, or filter out owner or maintenance usage.
1. To view the lease payment report, click the Payment Report at the top of the screen.
2. Adjust the date filter to match the lease payment requirements and click apply. For example: if you make monthly payments, set the date filter to the appropriate month.

Top Section - Beginning Balance

The beginning balance field allows you to adjust the lease payment by providing a beginning balance. Positive or negative beginning balances may be entered.

Enter a negative beginning balance if you have a credit with the lessor, and a positive beginning balance if you have a balance due to the lessor.

Top Section - Adjustments

Adjustments may be made to the lease back account by making journal entries. For example, if the lease agreement requires the lessor to pay maintenance costs, the maintenance expenses may be entered as an adjustment.

Ignoring Owner Use Entries

If your lease agreement allows you to filter owner use or maintenance, the accounting entries can be edited to adjust the amount.

  1. Click edit to edit the underlying accounting entries for the usage. NOTE: do not use the edit option that is associated with the Usage Entry. In this case the accounting values must be edited.
