Payments made to AR Accounts can be made for one or more folios in a statement. These can be full or partial payments and can made by any payment receipt type i.e. credit card, check, etc. If you want to set up a unique receipt type for direct bill payments, go to Receipt Types
When a Direct Bill payment is made to a folio, the amount is automatically added to the AR Account of the company. AR Accounts are used for keeping track of payments made by Companies to Individual, Group or House Account Folios. l
To see AR Payments made, go to Transactions Report
To see a summary of open balances for all companies by aging period, go to the Accounts Receivable Aging Report
You will notice that the AR Account for each company has a "Non-Statemented Invoice": This functions as a "holding" statement to hold all folios with open balances not transferred to a specific statement. All open invoices or folio charged are added to this statement. See example below.
Statements can be created to organize invoices by date range or payment period. You can create a new statement and then move folios to the designated statement.For example, you want to put all folio invoices for the last two weeks of November on one statement. First, create a new statement and then move the folios dated in that time range to the new folio. See AR Statements
To apply payments to individual Statements follow these steps:
Step 1: Show Statements (OPEN)
In this example, there are 5 open folios (4 in Non-Statemented Invoices and 1 in Invoice #26456) with a total balance of $1,736. Both have open folios and a balance due. The $ amount in the Total Column reflects the total amount of the folios charged to that Statement. The "Balance" column reflects what is still owing from the Company.
Step 2: Click on the Statement to apply payment: In this example, we clicked on Non-Statement Invoices with a balance of $1,361. Clicking on a statement will display the booking detail, Total charged on that statement and Payment options below the list. It may have one or several line items associated with it. In this case, there are 4 bookings charged to this statement. Each folio Receivable can take a partial or full payment.
Step 3: Complete Payment Information
*Payment Amount: $ amount of Total payment calculated from the $ amounts entered in the Pay column
Balance Amount: Amount of Balance due. Automatically calculated from Balance column.
Transfer checked Items to: Transfer charges to a new statement by putting a check in the box next to the desired charges and selecting New Statement from the Transfer checked items to drop down. The system will automatically create a new statement and move all selected charges and a new statement will show up under the AR account.
