Category Type: Fee


Fee categories are assigned to individual Fee codes in order to assign what General Ledger accounts to be used when the fee is involved in an accounting entry

As a default, your Blackpurl would have been setup with 1 x Fee Category but you can setup multiple Fee type categories to suit your needs.  Any time you wish for a Fee code to trigger a different General Ledger, you will need to set up a new Fee category to make this happen


For Fee Category you will only need to indicate the Income General Ledger - this General Ledger will be the offset when you use this Fee in an accounting transaction 




Please also note that you will also need to assign the correct General Ledger type based on the Fee:

If you are using the Fee on a Selling transaction ie on a Customer Order, the Category will need to have a true Income General Ledger indicated in the Income G/L field 

If you are using the Fee for a Purchasing transactions ie Vendor Invoices, the Category will need to have a true Expense General Ledger indicated in the Income G/L field


For example - Freight in (Purchasing transaction) and Freight out (Selling transaction) Fees

You will need to generally set up 2 fees - 1 x Freight charged on incoming parts by the vendor and 1 x Freight charged to Customers to recover Freight

You will need two categories

The Fee Category assigned to Freight in Fee, the Income GL field would need to assigned an Expense General Ledger

 

The Fee Category assigned to Freight out Fee, the Income GL field would need to be assigned to an Income General Ledger
