Sales - Money In

Question asked by Julie Woodhouse 3 years ago

I'm new to Clearbooks and currently running a months trial.

Having created customer invoices, I now need to record the payments coming in. One payment may be against a couple of invoices.

When i go into 'Sales - Money In', i'm ok until I get to the 'Accounting Date'. What do I put in here?

I'm operating CIS so not sure if this makes any difference to the date I input here. My initial instinct would be to put my year end date in which is 31/10/17.

Hi Julie

Sales > Money in is designed to record payments made in advance of invoices & bills and, whilst you can use it to match against them, they are not available to you to match bank statements you later import.

So the easiest way to make one off payments is to go to the invoice and use the quick pay feature to pay it off, otherwise (if you have one payment for a few invoices) use the bank screen "Money in" or, better still upload bank statements and match the sums agains the unpaid invoices.

Hi Julie,

The accounting date should be the date the payment was received.
