Hi Parul,

As this is all in the past, you could import a statement and allocate the payment to a bill, however, you may want to follow the below steps now and in future (similar situations):

1 You can create the payment of £7000 as a payment on account on the Purchases>Unallocated payments menu.

2 Next create the bill with April as the invoice date on the Purchases>Bills menu.

3 Once the bill is created, hit the Allocate payment button and you will be able to allocate the payment created to the bill
