How can I enter a restocking fee on a credit memo. Say I sell an item for
\$100 and my customer returns it. I create a credit memo and it credits them
for \$100, how can I charge a 10% fee for restock and have the calculation
done for \$10 and the total credit \$90.

Thanks,. Brian

Brian, If you used an item line to record the items sold and retruned, then
you can set the discount column on each line to 10% or whatever your charge
is. This will reduce the credit memo by that percentage. The total amount
for the restocking fee is the column total for the discount column. The
difference between the invoice and the credit memo remains in the income

If you want to record restocking fees to a different income account than the
the ones used by the items, then add another line at the end of the invoice,
choose your restocking fee account (or item) set the quantity to -1 so the
line amount will be deducted from the total, and set the amount for the line
to the restocking fee amount.
