Setting up suspense accounting

Updated on March 21, 2023

By default, Pega Smart Dispute for Issuers splits the sum total of an open suspense transaction between the Outstanding and Suspense Balance of the work item on pyWorkPage.

For example, if an Open step contains the following:

  • Debit Suspense Receivable 150/USD
  • Debit Fee Reversal 35/USD
  • Credit Customer Account 185/USD

Then the Suspense and Outstanding balance would be written as 185/USD.

This is done to avoid writing off the 35/USD fee reversal, and it assumes full recovery of the 150/USD receivable. This approach may result in two separate credits to the customer. You can optionally create one accounting step that correctly accounts for the suspense balances and provides a single credit to the customer.

Performing a raise action on a suspense entry increases the balance amount that is applied to the suspense general ledger. Performing lower, close, or write-off actions reduces this balance, eventually to 0/USD.
