Accounts Receivable - Data Entry


Cash Receipt

sapphireone-accounting-software-accounts-receivables-cash-receipt-windows

In the first section of the menu are the two main Data Entry screens; Cash Receipt is one of them.

Transaction Types

Cash Receipt (MR) is used when no client details are available for entry into the transaction. Selection of the relevant bank account will determine what type of payment is received. For example, cheque, credit card or cash accounts which are set up in the General Ledger.

Error Checking

SapphireOne performs a considerable amount of error checking before you are allowed to save the transaction. This may be seen on the main toolbar when the green tick is displayed allowing the saving of the current transaction.

Accounts Receivable - Data Entry


Client's Invoice

sapphireone-accounts-receivables-client-invoice-windows

By entering a valid Client ID any applicable client details that are in the client’s master file are automatically entered into the invoice. The transactions area has the client details recorded and the remainder of the data entry procedure is the same as the Cash Transaction screen.

Transaction Types

Client Invoice (CI) is for the entry of invoices to the General Ledger.

Prompt Payment Discounts

This area displays the prompt payment discount terms as set up for this client in his master file if payment is made early.

Accounts Receivable - Data Entry


Client's Credit Memo

accounts-receivables-client-credit-memo-windows

Client Credit Memo allows the entry of credits. For example, when goods are returned by the client. A Client ID is needed for the entry of details and it is very similar to the previous two functions – a Cash Receipt and a Client Invoice. This function also has additional pages that are identical to those in Client Invoice, Custom, Action and Documents.

Transaction Types

Credit Memo (CC) allows for the generation of credits. For example, return of faulty or incorrect goods supplied.

Allocation

Once the Credit Memo has been entered the green tick on the main tool bar will be displayed so that the user may select it and when selected the system will display the Allocation function enabling the user to immediately allocate the credit to another invoice.

Accounts Receivable - Data Entry


Client's Journal

accounts-receivables-client-journal-windows

The Client Journal entry procedure is very similar to a Cash Receipt or Client Invoice. If there is a negative number, then insert the $ and bracket it to indicate a negative amount. For example: ($500.00).

Transaction Types

Client Journal (CJ) is used when client balances need adjustment. For example, an error has been made or a credit not been applied correctly.

Custom Page

The custom page for a Client Journal is identical to the custom page when the Cash Receipt function is executed.

Accounts Receivable - Data Entry


Client's Receipt

accounts-receivables-client-receipt-windows

Data entry for this function is very similar to the Cash Receipt screen but we now have a Client ID. Once the Client ID is entered the system will populate the details in the transaction area from the details as entered in the client’s master file.

Transaction Types

Client Receipt (CR) manages the receipt of money from client’s for payment of accounts.

Allocation

Once all data entry is correct, the system will display the green tick on the main toolbar. Once it is selected, the system will display the allocation screen enabling the selection of invoices that are to have the client receipt allocated to.

Accounts Receivables - Inquiry


There are four Inquiry screens that allow you to search and access your main Client files. There are – Transactions, Allocations, Clients and Class.

clients-transactions-inquiry-mac

Client Transactions Inquiry

When a Transactions Inquiry is selected the system displays a screen that lists all current transactions for clients. These will be listed initially by default in Sequence number order. A number of Sorting and Finding functions are available from all list screens in the SapphireOne system.

These are documented in Chapter 3 of the Navigation and Procedures manual of SapphireOne enterprise financial accounting software.

Transactions are listed in order of entry with the most recent at the top. Like other list windows you can manipulate the information that is displayed in the list by highlighting and using functions from the Options Menu or by using (Command K) and selecting from the Options as listed.

clients-allocations-inquiry-mac

Clients Allocations Inquiry

The Client Allocations Inquiry screen is similar to a Transaction Inquiry screen. This function only displays those records that the system thinks have not been fully allocated for some reason.

Normally when a transaction is created and the system determines that an allocation should be made; it will immediately display the allocation screen limited to the Client for whom the transaction has been auctioned against. The user may then make an immediate allocation.

The main purpose of this screen is to allocate transactions for Open Item Clients against their respective transactions that have not yet had an allocation made against them for some reason. For example, a Receipt against the appropriate Invoice.

By default, when this function is selected any transactions for all Clients that the system determines have not been fully allocated will be displayed.
By default only transactions that are less than 100% allocated are displayed.

clients-inquiry-mac

Clients Inquiry

The initial Client Inquiry list screen presents a window that contains a list displaying some of the basic details about each Client. This will allow you to easily find and select the required Client for additional viewing or modifying.

SapphireOne retains strict audit control and therefore does not allow the deletion of Clients.

A Client may be changed from an Active Client to an Inactive Client and vice versa provided that they have a zero balance and there are no outstanding transaction auctioned against them when they are made inactive!

clients-class-inquiry-mac

Clients Class Inquiry

The Class Inquiry option allows the grouping of Clients into standard areas/groups as applicable to your business. This expands the sorting or grouping of your data in the production of reports generated from SapphireOne.

Accounts Receivable - Process


Post Client Transactions

post-clients-transactions-mac

Post Client Transactions

The Post Transactions function presents a window which contains all current transactions awaiting posting listed in date order.
Activities here will carry the transactions through to the General Ledger updating the balances in all accounts concerned.
It should be noted that this posting function will list all the un-posted transactions entered in the Receivables menu for the current period or prior periods.

These are transactions that have the Status code of ‘ent’ for correctly entered and thus ready for posting. A status code of ‘Yes’ means that the transaction has successfully been posted.

process-deposit-bank-accounts-mac

Deposits - Bank Accounts

This function prints out a report of all Deposits entered into the Bank Accounts.
This can then be used to check that all deposits have been entered and can also be used to deposit money into the Bank.
