I am trying to figure out how to record a cash withdrawal in ERPNext
- bank account currency: Hong Kong Dollar
- cash currency: Chinese Yuan
- bank fees: Deducted in the same transaction
I guess #1. & #2. are not a problem for me right now, but the withdrawal fees that are included in the same transaction (not a separate entry) is giving me some headaches.
The simplest way to record this in ERPNext would be a “Payment Entry” (Type: Internal Transfer) because it does not bother with the debit/credit terminology and likewise is straight forward to anyone (‘acc paid from’ / ‘acc paid to’ is pretty self-explanatory).
Now the problem I see here is that I do not see any way to create an extra entry for the bank fees (which should point to an “bank fees” expense account).
Do I just not see the hack to do this with a Payment Entry, or is the only way a 3-lined (bank account/cash/bank fees expense account) Journal Entry? If so, how to credit/debit go in such a 3-way?
