- Go to Accounting > Bank
- be sure to select the proper operating bank, then Details
- under Transactions, click Add
- type: Adjustment Out
- enter amount of fee
- be sure to leave internal notes on 'Memo 2' Line

- Select "Trust Transaction" on the right
- Enter the same as listed above, then save.
