2.1.6 How To Allocate A Transaction:

Note:

To bring your accounts up to date you will need to Allocate your transactions to either show:

  • Payments / Receipts
  • Credits
  • Refunds
  • Adjustments

If you have only posted the receipt / adjustment to an account or need to allocate a Credit and Invoice together, you will then need to use the Manual Allocation command.

Navigate To: Sales Ledger > Enter Transactions > Allocation

  1. Select the Customer Receipt you are wanting to process.
  2. Select the relevant account you want to Allocate The Receipt To
  3. Enter the Allocation date. This defaults to the system date, but can be changed.
  4. Enter a receipt value for the SA transaction and for the SL.
  5. Once the relevant transaction amounts have been allocated against each other within the “Receipt” column, select > Save to allocate the amount placed in the receipt column against the Sales Invoice.

 

Hint:

The Allocation date entered, is the date used to age transactions on the retrospective Aged Debtors report.

The Customer Receipt screen will show a list of all outstanding transactions that relate to the customer’s Account. These transactions will be show as SA (Sales Receipt) or SI (Sales Invoice).
