Entering unallocated payments

Product Help Banner.png


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