When there is a purchase return, it's a 2 part transaction. Inventory is debited (we get it back) and cost of goods sold is credited (wasn't really an expense so we adjust). The other part is we debit purchase returns (contra revenue account) and credit accounts receivable, because they do not owe us that money anymore.
