Accounts Payable Report

The Accounts Payable Report prints a list of all Clients to whom the agency owes money, based on this month's invoices. This report should be printed after generating invoices at Month End. Normally when you print the Accounts Payable Report, the Date Range FROM and TO fields should both display the same date. Statements bearing this date must exist in your system, already generated using the Generate Statements option.

Print for all clients, or select a Client range or a billing period.

If you wish to print historical reports, select a Date range. (Statements within this date range must exist in your system, already generated.)

The Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable reports are simply summary reports listing invoice totals. These reports do not examine every transaction that has occurred over a date range. They use the summary totals from generated statements. The statement generating process reliably examines all requisite transactions. If your statements are correct, these financial summary reports will be accurate as well.

1. From the Main Menu, select the Month End option. Then select Payables Report to print the Accounts Payable Report.

Using Internal Reports

These reports are important for tracking financials accurately and reconciling statements. They work well for basic simple payments and occasional NSFs to accounts. More sophisticated methods require custom reports to accommodate more complex details. This can be accommodated.

tip.gif Any of the internal reports may be replaced with your own customized version. To make Collect! run your own custom reports via the Print menu, Daily, Monthly, Analysis and Trust reports, change the Start On to something other than INTERNAL, depending on the particulars of your report, and place your own report codes in the Report Body of the report.
