English term or phrase: contra payments
Es un documento que describe los "treasury and banking processes" de una compañía

El texto dice:

Journal Entries: Funds Received, funds paid, contra payments/receipts

Encontre este concepto:

A contra payment is where you invoice a customer and also receive a bill and wish to “contra” the two transactions off against each other so only the difference is paid.

Follow these steps after you have entered a bill and an invoice for a supplier/customer. Bear in mind that the name on the bill has to be different to that on the invoice.

To do a contra payment you must first set up an expense account called “Contra”. Then select “Make Journal Entry” from the Banking menu. On the first line of the General Journal Entry, select "Accounts Receivable" and credit the amount that will be used. Put the name of the customer on the same line under the "Name" column. On the next line select "Contra" and debit the same amount. Save this entry

agree  MikeGarcia: Tal cual, sobre todo eso de "sospecho que un banquero diría "pagos contra". Es como cuando se habla de "nostro account" y "vostro account"....

pagos compensatorios

me inclino más por "compensatorios", no me suena lo de "neteo" (al menos en Argentina).
El FMI suele traducir "contra" por "compensatorio" por ej. "contra entry" - "partida comensatoria"
