Include refunded card transactions & BACS Credits in budget categories

How come when a refund goes back into the account and you select the category does it not bring the category spending down?

For example I spent money on clothes which I then sent back. Some of money was refunded. I selected the shopping category but it still says I spent £30 on shopping, when £25 has been refunded…

I know that a refund will affect your “total spent today” amount, but not sure about how it affects the summary. One workaround, for the case where you get a full refund for a transaction is to exclude the original transaction from summary, which isn’t the case here unfortunately, where you have a partial refund.

You might find including bank transfers in budget categories helps with some types of refunds. You can vote for it here:

That doesn’t seem to be the same feature suggestion as most refunds are refunded card transactions, not bank transfers?
