Payments Made

Payments Made

The payments you make to your Vendors in exchange for a supply can be recorded in the Payments Made module of Zoho Books. Each time a payment is made to your Vendor, you record a receipt for the payment with details such as date, payment mode and amount. This lets you track the money moving out of your business. 

You can also view the payments made to your vendors from the Bills tab. Click the particular Bill and navigate to the Payments Made tab present near the Comments and History tab to view details of the payment alongside the Bill.  

Recording Payments

Recording the payments in Zoho Books is easy. Even if you forget how much you owe to your vendor, Zoho Books gives you the exact log of payments to be made and keeps you updated. 

There may be cases where you might have received a Bill from your vendor and you can choose to make partial payments for the same. So each time you record a payment in Zoho Books, the amount due gets automatically adjusted. So, while Zoho Books takes care of your cash, you can take care of your business.
