Bank Settlement Groups
A new Bank Settlement Group allows for the definition of how different receipt and payment transactions should be settled and grouped onto the bank statement.
Example for Store EFT where Mastercard, Visa & EFTPOS receipts are totalled onto the bank statement.
The new Bank Settlement activity allows for a location or individual store to run when settlement occurs (at the end of day or a shift), this will summarise all banking transactions into appropriate settlement lines based upon the bank settlement groups that have been set-up. This assists reconciling cash, cheques and EFTPOS taken at that location, the existing banking report is complimentary and can also be used to help identify problems and correct transactions. The bank settlement may be run as often as desired before being completed.
Example Bank Settlement showing cash payments/receipts being grouped into a single settlement line.
Bank Reconciliation will summarise bank settlement lines to assist in bank reconciliation this streamlines and simplifies bank reconciliation’s especially for multi location organisations that handle large numbers of cash, cheque and EFFTPOS transactions.
