    'return the rest/the remaining amount'?

    I will transfer $100. Buy the item and then return the rest/the remaining amount.

    How would I express it in acceptable English?

    ... give me what's left. There are other possibilities, but that's the one that occurred to me.

    ... then give me what's left/left over" is what occurred to me.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
