Sales Ledger Receipts

Product Help Banner.png


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.

The Sales Ledger window 

The Sales Ledger window within a client record contains the following options:

  • Adjustments

  • Receipts

  • Ledger

These options control which window is shown and the tasks that can be performed in each.

Clicking Adjustments displays the Adjustments window. In this window you can create an adjustment for a particular debtor payment or apply a discount to reduce the debt.

Clicking on Receipts displays the Receipts window. In this window you can enter receipts for payments received against outstanding client bills and unallocated cash.

Clicking on Ledger displays the Ledger window. In this window, you can view the aged debt for the client and reverse receipts entered incorrectly. You can also export the client bill data to a Microsoft™ Excel spreadsheet, or preview or print it.

The Sales Ledger window contains the following buttons:

  • Post

  • Unallocate

  • Allocate

  • Reverse

  • Reallocate
