- Crediting unused money from trust accounts
Credit from Operating
1. From the Matters Tab, select the appropriate matter and click Details, or double-click the matter
Credit Memo Screen
4. Review the Credit Memo screen. This screen is essentially a transaction screen that allows you to record the amount you will be returning back to the client. You will want to review all the details, but pay close attention to the following items:
- Amount: Make sure the amount matches the available credit, and your intended credit amount
- Type and Method: Choose the intended type and method of the credit. If you’re using CosmoLex to print checks, you can use this to cut a check directly from the program
- Bank: Ensure the selected bank is correct, or else the available credit will not appear to prevent you from making an error
- Memo: Use this to enter a note for your records. Memo 1 will show on a printed check if you will be printing your checks from CosmoLex. Memo 2 is an internal only note.
5. When ready, click Save
Once saved, a transaction of the credit will appear in the respective matter’s transactions tab for your records. If ‘To be Printed’ was selected, the check will be ready to print from the Operating Bank used. Learn how to print checks.
Credit from Trust
To issue a refund from a client’s trust funds, create a trust withdrawal.
