Question about notes payables:

When you give a company X amount of $. It is considered notes receivables. Which is a payable that is due from the other company.

Now my question is... when I receive a portion of X amount of dollars from that company, do I debit cash and credit notes receivables?

Or do I debit cash and credit notes payables?

Dumb question, but it should be notes receivables. Just want to make sure.

Any response is greatly appreciated.

I'll pitch in some help. It can't be a credit to notes payable. Notes payable would only be used for a transaction involving credit extended to you.

Okay,
Payable is resource you have to pay for.
Originally, you received resource or cash in the past where you:
Dr. Cash or other asset
Cr. Payable

Receivable is resource or cash you gave to someone that they have to pay back.
Originally:
You debited Receivable and and credited cash or revenue. When you get paid
You will debit cash, and credit receivable.
