Payments and Print Checks
|Top Previous Next|
Here checks can be printed for Vendor Payables that have not yet been paid or that have been partially paid. The Payments and Print Checks window lists such Payables on the Open Payables Grid. By default, all Payables will be displayed. Only Payables associated with a particular Accounts Payable Payment Type can be displayed, however, by selecting the desired A/P Payment Type on the Pay With menu.
To select a Payable for payment, tag the entry by clicking the Tag column for the Payable. To print the Check, click on the Print button in the lower right corner of the window. Doing so will open the Check Run Window where Checks can be printed. If the Hand Check / Wire Transfer button was used when recording the Payable, it will not appear on this tab. If the Check for the Payable will be written by hand, tag the Payable, click the Hand Check / Wire button below the Open Payables Grid, and enter the appropriate information on the Hand Check / Wire Transfer Window.
Selected Total: The Selected Total is the current total amount of all Payables tagged for payment.
Tag Button: Clicking this button will open the Tag Invoices To Pay Window. Here payables can be selected for payment by their Payment Due Date. All payables with a Payment Due Date on or before the date that entered on the Tag Invoices to Pay Window will be tagged for payment.
Open Payables Grid and the Pay With menu: The Open Payables Grid displays information for all Payables that have not yet been paid or that have been partially paid. Entries appear in Vendor Code order but can be sorted by any column by clicking the desired column heading. By default, all open Payables will be listed. Only Payables associated with a particular Accounts Payable Payment Type can be displayed by selecting the desired Payment Type on the Pay With menu. For more information, see Accounts Payable Payment Types and the Company Information Window - A/P Payment Tab. Tag a Payable to select it for payment. Once the desired Payables have been selected, click on the Print button in the lower right corner of the window to print the Check(s) from the Check Run Window. Once a Payable has been paid in full, it will be removed from the Open Payables Grid. The columns on the grid are described below:
The following buttons appear below the Open Payables Grid:
Go To: If a particular Payable on the Open Payables Grid needs to be edited or voided, select the entry and click the Go To button. Doing so will display the Vendor Deposits, Invoices, and Operating Expenses Window - Existing Tab with the selected Payable highlighted on the Existing Vendor Payables Grid. The Payable can then be edited or voided as necessary.
Offset: If two or more Payables for the same Vendor whose sum totals to zero (i.e., positive and negative/credit Payables have been entered for the Vendor), the entries can be dropped from Open Payables Grid and Accounts Payable by tagging the entries and clicking the Offset button. Offsetting Payables is a useful feature when handling credits that have been received from the Vendor.
