What to Pay

  • Account Payable Aged Invoice Report
    • The Accounts Payable Aged Invoice Report provides a detailed list of paid and outstanding invoices. When printing the report, you have a choice of including just paid invoices, outstanding invoices, or both. You also have a choice of including one or all of the aging categories defined in Accounts Payable Options. You can age invoices by the invoice date or the due date.
  • Cash Requirements Report
    • The Cash Requirements Report provides a summary of outstanding invoices and total cash requirements for any three consecutive periods. This report provides the necessary data to analyze future cash needs and effectively plan cash flow on a weekly, monthly, or quarterly basis, depending on the period-ending dates entered.

Selecting Invoice for Payment

There are two tasks available on the Check Printing menu allowing you to select invoices: Invoice Payment Selection and Check Maintenance.

Invoice Payment Selection

  • If the Always Take Discounts check box is selected, discounts are taken even if expired.
  • At the Vendor’s Balance Due field, you can select invoices to pay based on the vendor’s balance. For example, you can select invoices for vendors with balances due greater than or equal to a dollar amount you define.

Manual Check Entry – Reversals

  • When reversing a check, enter all amounts as negative numbers.
  • If the G/L Distribution check box is selected on the Lines tab, you can reverse the check and the expense without reopening the invoice.
  • If the Track Detailed Invoice/Payment History check box is selected in Accounts Payable Options, you have the option of automatically adding the invoices originally paid on the Lines tab.
  • Click Yes when asked if this is a check reversal to continue with the check reversal process or click No to return to the Manual Check Entry window.
  • Click Yes when asked, to have the invoice(s) originally paid automatically added to the Lines tab.
