Transfer Outstanding Balances

Diamond and Premier only

The Sales / Purchase Utilities option allows the facility to transfer invoice balances between accounts, this option has now been extended to allow for the transfer of payments, credits, invoice adjustments and payment adjustment transactions.

 

Selecting to transfer a credit note or invoice adjustment operates in the same manner as an invoice – asking for the transfer amount, then confirming the transfer VAT code, the amount (and VAT amount) plus the transfer ‘to’ account code before asking to confirm the new transaction due date, reference and description.  As part of the transfer the system will apply the nominal/analysis defaults set within the Application User Facilities.  The transfer of the Credit / Invoice Adjustment will create an invoice on the ‘from’ account and the credit / invoice adjustment on the ‘to’ account.

Selecting to transfer a payment or payment adjustment operates in a similar manner – asks for the transfer amount, the new account code and to confirm the new transaction reference and description.  The transfer of a payment will create a payment adjustment on the ‘from’ account and a new payment transaction on the ‘to’ account, with the reverse if transfer a payment adjustment.
