Insurance settlements

How you record an insurance settlement in AccountRight will depend on your scenario. In a nutshell, a typical scenario would be:

  • record a Receive Money transaction for receipt of the insurance settlement, and

  • record a Spend Money transaction for repair or replacement of the insured item.

The specifics of these transactions will be determined by factors including:

  • whether the settlement is paid to you or a third party, e.g. a repairer

  • out of pocket expenses, and

  • any GST payable (check the ATO or IRD website for clarification)

When it comes to recording insurance settlement transactions, there's no "one size fits all".
