Entering unallocated receipts to a client

Product Help Banner.png


An unallocated receipt is money received by the practice from a client who does not as yet have an invoice against which to match the payment. For example, when cash is received in advance of the work being billed. Once the prepayment has been entered, it is posted to update the debtor’s ledger. There is no matching at this stage as the invoice has not yet been generated. When the invoice is raised and posted, the unallocated receipt can then be matched.
