Sales Ledger Receipts

The Sales Ledger window is used for entering debtor payments, producing receipts and adjustments and allows you to view the current and aged debtor amounts for a client’s bills. When a client pays an invoice, the details need to be entered into the Sales Ledger so that debtor amounts can accurately reflect the outstanding client debt. When receipts are entered, they reduce the total debtors amount for a client. Receipts can be allocated to a specific invoice item down to the employee level.
