Is a Refund an Expense Or Income?
When a customer returns merchandise they have purchased, the retailer may issue a refund. From an accounting perspective, a refund is considered income when it relates to the return of services. The treatment of a refund as income or expense depends on whether the customer is returning goods or services.
If a customer purchases merchandise from a store and then returns the item, the store may give them a refund. In this case, the refund would be considered an expense because it represents money that the store has lost. On the other hand, if a customer pays for a service and then decides to cancel it, they may receive a refund.

The desktop version is more comprehensive and can be used even if you don’t have an internet connection. In this article, we will discuss how to record a refund in QuickBooks Desktop. There are two ways to give refunds in QuickBooks: as a direct deposit or as a check.
If the customer wants the refund as a direct deposit, then go to Customers > Create Credit Memos/Refunds > Select the Customer > Enter the Amount of the Refund> Ok. This will create what’s called an ACH (Automated Clearing House) batch, which will appear in your Undeposited Funds account until you physically deposit it into your bank account.

This will create what’s called an RDC (Remote Deposit Capture) batch that can be deposited at your bank just like any other check.
