Allocations by Account - Sales Ledger

When you post payments and credit notes to open-item accounts, you will usually allocate them at the same time. against the invoices being paid as described in detail during the payment entry process. However, on occasion this may not be possible, perhaps because it is a payment on account, or there is inadequate allocation information.

The purpose of the ALLOCATE option is to allow you to allocate transactions against each other.On making this choice you are asked to confirm the date for the allocation

The current date is offered, for acceptance or amendment. If in a forward period you are asked to confirm that you want it posted to the forward period — if not, then supply a date in the current open period.

Once you have done this, you are in the payment allocation screen, and are asked for the first account whose transactions you wish to allocate. The allocation procedure itself is fully described in the payment entry section above.

Once you have processed the first account, you are returned to the account code prompt to choose another, or <Escape> to the menu.
