Client Receipts

Entries, or changes, in this form automatically up date the Client's job Ledger YTD payments.  When those entries are payments for job invoices.  Payments for one off invoices have no effect on the job Y.T.D. figures.

Deposited payments may not be altered.

Receipts must be linked to existing invoice(s). If using the payments accounting basis, you can record cash receipts. There must still be an invoice to match the payment to.

Match each receipt to an existing invoice.  You may enter multiple receipts against any one invoice, but each receipt entry must match a single invoice. This enables the system to calculate possible writeoffs, and overdue debt.  A client may pay part of an invoice, and you can still track what has not been paid. If a client receipt is for multiple invoices you must create a receipt entry for each invoice it relates to. 

When you enter an invoice number in the Invoice field how much is owed on it displays to the right.

2. Enter, or select, the client code in the Paid by field. 

3. Enter, or select, an  invoice. The selection list (Click on the Magnifying glass at the right of the field) displays all invoices for the selected client. If the invoice has a balance unpaid it displays in the Amount due field to the right. The job the invoice is for displays in the Payment is for job panel. When an invoice is selected the description of the invoice (if any) is placed in the Notes field with "Payment for" added.

5. Enter the date of the payment.

6. If the payment is different from the balance due enter the Amount.
