How Do I Reverse a Disbursement?


  • Reverse a disbursement made to the Trust Account
  • Return a disbursement
  • Refund a disbursement


  • Clio Manage

Additional Information:

  • Certain jurisdictions require a full accounting of Trust Transactions, including entries made in error. This workflow would be used to reverse a disbursement made out of the Trust Account, when you're unable to simply delete the disbursement due to regulations.



  1. Go to the Transactions Tab of the Matter
  2. Select the Trust Account ledger
  3. Click New transaction
  4. Add a transaction equal to the amount of the disbursement
    • Make sure to use the same date as the disbursement
    • Make sure to leave plenty of notes as to why this transaction is being reversed
  5. After entering all the details, click Record transaction
