Receive Payment Not Linked to Sales Invoice

Hi all,

Our company has received a payment (via check) for an insurance claim we filed. Because it was not a sale, we do not have any corresponding ERPNext document to link it to (i.e: it shouldn’t be transacted on a Sales Invoice).

How can I “deposit” this check into our primary bank account? Payment Entry form only allows for it to be linked to a Party of some kind. Since they are a Supplier, not a Customer, receiving the payment that way will not work. It also will not work because the Supplier has no open balance.


The money received from an insurance company for a claim involving a loss on inventory stock is debited to Cash. Any other proceeds from disposing of the inventory items will also be debited to Cash.

Probably debit Cash and credit to say Receivable Insurance Claim with this
