Dear xxxxx,

 

We are pleased to provide you with a summation of recent enhancements and new features in AccountAbility. If you would like any further information please contact support@accountabilityacces.com

The ‘Custom Code; function has now been made available for Jobs, if you would like some information on how to set this up please contact us.


Receivables Aging based on Due Date


Go to Master Files / Clients. Open a client - you’ll notice an additional “From” field at the bottom of the page where you can set the default payment terms calculation method for the Client.

 

By default this is set as ‘From Invoice Date’ – but you have various choices here, for example you might assign:


                •    1 Month from invoice added date – meaning the invoices for this client  are due 1 month after the date you added it in AccountAbility, or


                •    30 days from date EOM – meaning the invoices for this client are due 30 days from the end of the month of the invoice date – so if the invoice date was 16th November, the due date would be 30th December

 

When adding Client Invoices – you will see a new ‘Due Date’ field – this will default to the due date calculated based on the Client default payment terms – but you can change the due date if a specific invoice is to be treated differently than the default for the Client

 

When printing the Receivables Aging Report, there are now two new options to choose from:

 

                a)       Invoice Date/Month – this prints the Receivables Aging report in the existing report format


                b)       Due Date Month – this prints a new report which ages the receivables according to their payment due date, and provides separate totals for invoices that are overdue, or not yet due:


                                a.        If you select the option ‘As At Accounting Month’ – the invoices are aged into the Month they are due


                                b.        If you select the option ‘As At Date’ – the invoices are aged into the day ranges they are due (e.g. Overdue 1-30 days, Overdue 31-60 Days etc.)
