    • Vendor credits in Oracle NetSuite can be classified both in the general section of the vendor credit, as well as the line items of the vendor credit
  • When vendor credits sync from to Oracle NetSuite, the general section of the vendor credit will use the account that's set as the Default Payables classification in the Preferences within Oracle NetSuite
    • To make it easier to reclassify these records (as needed), create a department, location, and/or class called Unclassified, Uncoded or something similar, and set that as the Default Payables classification. This will allow a report to be run to isolate the vendor credits that need to be reclassified.
  • To configure the sync to apply vendor credits in Oracle NetSuite when a period is closed, enable Non-GL Changes to the Accounting Period in Oracle NetSuite:
    1. Hover over Setup > Accounting, select Manage Accounting Periods
    2. Select the period in which the vendor credit is dated to edit the base period
    3. Check Allow Non-G/L Changes

    • Once a vendor credit is approved in and syncs to Oracle NetSuite, changes to the approval status won't sync
