Those who use Square to complete their customers’ transactions know that there is a charge for using Square for every transaction. It is possible to enter these costs to balance everything at the end of the month in Collabox. We will explain how to do this here; it’s easier than it looks.

You should first think of Square as a separate account, just like your company’s bank or cash account. You therefore need to create a Square transactional account in Collabox, with a Square provider.

First, create the supplier, then the account.

Once you have completed these steps, you are ready to post transactions with Square in Collabox. For example, consider a bill for $ 100.01 that a customer pays you entirely by credit.

As you know, Square automatically transfers the amounts to your account, but charges the fees along the way. In order to enter your customer’s payment as well as transaction fees in Collabox, you must first make a payment into the Square account of the total amount of the invoice. or $ 100.01 for this example.

Page Make a payment

The invoice will therefore be considered paid and will no longer appear in your accounts receivable. However, the money is in the Square account, not your business bank account. You must therefore make a payment from the Square account to your checking account in the amount you have left after the transaction fees.
Suppose here that the fee is 3 %. You should then transfer $ 97 to your checking account.

To do this, click on the icon Accounting of the horizontal menu.

Collabox horizontal menu

Then, go to the page Transactional accounts from the vertical menu .

Collabox vertical menu, section Accounting

Click on the Square account, and go to the tab Statements . Then click on Add indent .

Page Square Account Statements

Select the direct deposit from the Square account to your checking account, in the amount of $ 97 (in the case of our example) and save the entry.

Page Add an entry to the general ledger

Finally, you must enter Square’s transactional fees as an expense in Collabox. You’ll enter these as a Square vendor payout, which you’ll pay through the Square payment method.

Still in the accounting section of Collabox, click on Disbursed .

Vertical menu, section Accounting

Click on Add a disbursement .

Page List of disbursements

Select the Square supplier, enter the invoice number, the project, the Square budget item and the total amount corresponding to the charges, which is $ 3 in our example. If necessary, use the tax reverser . Don’t forget to record your disbursement!

Page Add a disbursement

To continue, click on the disbursement that you have just recorded, then go to the tab Payments . Click on Add payment .

Page List of disbursement payments[numéro du déboursé]

Enter the amount corresponding to the disbursement, choose the Square disbursement and complete the payment by clicking on Record .

Page Add payment

Everything should swing now! Note that you don’t need to count the fees for each transaction. Since Square keeps track of them, you could very well enter them only once a month.
