Follow the steps outlined below if a vendor sends you a refund for a credit balance they've been carrying. This process assumes that the vendor originally issued a credit memo, which you have already entered into CenterPoint. The refund will transfer to the bank reconciliation as a negative check (same affect as a deposit).
