12 Customers...How Do I? How Do I Record a payment received from a customer? Short answer: As a New receipt. Tab: Customer Control Group: Receipt Option: New NOTE: To fully process a customer s payment there are three steps (New, Allocate and Deposit). New: New is always the first required step. Once this is completed, the funds remain on the customer s account and are posted to ledger accounts unallocated receipts and un-deposited funds. The check number should be put in the Reference field and the Invoice number this check pays should be put in the Memo field. This will allow you to later see this information on the Deposit Report. Reference = Check number Memo = Invoice number Receipt New allows you to allocate a customer s payment when you record the receipt of the payment. It is, however, not required that you allocate all or any of the Receipt New at this time. Receipt Allocate can be completed at the same time the Receipt New is entered, OR you have the flexibility to allocate receipts using the icon in the Receipt Group, which allows for a) division of duties, and b) complete deposits before you allocate.

From The Ribbon Menu: Tab: Customer Control Group: Receipt Option: Allocate NOTE: To fully process a customer s payment there are three steps (New, Allocate and Deposit). Explanation: Receipt New allows you to allocate your customer s payment (as described below). If you did not have the information available to allocate the payment in that step, following is the procedure. Allocate: 1. Select the appropriate customer from the list of receipts yet to be allocated (top of screen). 2. In the Receivables and Orders expander, the allocation list will show all open orders, receivable, and finance charges for this customer. Select the open order this money is to be applied to. Once allocated, these funds flow from unallocated receipts to the ledger accounts receivable. 3. You can also select the Ledger expander and allocate directly to a specified Ledger

14 Customers...How Do I? How Do I Allocate the customer s payment to an order?continued Note: ASI SmartBooks is flexible and allows you to deposit then allocate to appropriate order/ledger or allocate and then deposit. Tip: If you prefer to complete your deposit prior to allocating receipts, it is recommended you enter the order or invoice numbers in the memo field.

You can then use the deposit report to later allocate payments to the orders and invoices using the Receipt Allocate option.

15 Customers...How Do I? How Do I Deposit Customers Payments? Short answer: As a receipt. From the Ribbon Menu Tab: Customer Control Group: Receipt Option: Deposit To fully process a customer s payment there are three steps (New, Allocate and Deposit).

Check the Receipts to include in this deposit. If you check the Print Deposit box, You will be prompted to print the deposit slip after you process the deposit. Receipt-Deposit will show a list of bank accounts with un-deposited funds above the current view of receipts waiting to be deposited. Based on the bank account associated to the Payment Method that was assigned to the receipt during the Receipt-New or Epayment transaction will determine the bank account where these payments will appear. Receipts can be deposited and then allocated or allocated and then deposited. Any new deposit allocated to an order that already has invoices will be shown on the next invoice created for the order.

23 Integration How Do I Deposit Epayment Transactions? 6. The final step when entering Customer Receipts is the Deposit. Due to the fact actual deposits for credit cards are never deposited on the same day as they are processed, use ASI SmartBooks deposit feature to not artificially overstate the true cash on hand until the money is actually deposited in the bank account. Depending on the card issuer and card type, this will typically take between 2 3 business days. The deposit in ASI SmartBooks can be completed either by watching your bank account through your online banking services, or relying on Web Payment Gateway Reporting for deposit notifications to alert you when the deposit has occurred. Then use the deposit process in ASI SmartBooks to indicate the true deposit date(s). Tab: Customer or Accounting Control Group: Receipt Option: Deposit

If I need to charge the customer s card for 1/2 the order amount for down payment and I accidently pay in full, how do I correct this? You would need to void or credit the transaction through PromoPayment's web service. You would then need to use the Customer History to zero out the Receipt New and the Receipt-Allocate. Re-enter the corrected transaction. 2. What if I paid partial payment or incorrect amount to the wrong invoice? (Note: This solution assumes there is still an amount due on the invoice). A. Receipt-New: Enter a receivable as a positive amount for the mistaken value applied to wrong invoice. B. Receipt-Allocate: 1. Allocate positive amount on the Receipt-New input above 2. Allocate negative amount on invoice that was incorrectly charged. This will net the payment to 0.00 and will not force another deposit. C. Go to PromoPayment site and enter a manual transaction to either void, refund or credit the transaction. D. Once you ve received confirmation the monies have been refunded, post a ledger entry between cash and Accounts Receivable. 3. Can I issue a credit through PromoPayment? Currently ASI SmartBooks only will process a sales transaction, and a sales transactions can only be a positive amount. Therefore, a credit cannot be processed within ASI SmartBooks. Go to the PromoPayment site and enter a manual transaction to the credit card.

91 Vendors...How Do I? Pay Sales Tax? Explanation: The Sales Tax resource is used to collect information regarding the various sales taxes each company is responsible for collecting, reporting and reimbursing to the appropriate Sales Tax Vendors. You will need a Vendor and Ledger for each sales tax liability before setting up the Sales Tax Resource. Once this is complete, when you enter an order or invoice and use this sales tax resource, the program will automatically update your liability, so when you get to check writing, it is a simple process. Steps 1 through 3 are a one-time setup process. Step 4 is the checkwriting procedure. 1. Set up Ledger: Tab: Accounting Control Group: Chart of Accounts Option: New If you are using ASI Computer System s numbering system for Ledgers, the Sales Tax Payable Ledger is 228.

You can go directly to the Vendor-Bill-Pay Option. Select the invoices you want to pay. Proceed to Vendor-Bill-Checks, to print the physical check. NOTE 1: If you converted from another system, your Sales Tax Vendor may have defaulted to a generic name (Tax Vendor). You will then need to set up a Pay To Contact in this Vendor Resource before going into the Bill-Pay option. NOTE 2: If you converted in the middle of the month, you need to go back to your previous system and get your sales tax figures. Then do Vendor-Bill-New and Vendor-Bill-Apply (to appropriate sales tax ledger) for that amount. Vendor Page 32

94 Vendors...How Do I? Record Sales Tax Discount? Explanation: If your Sales Tax Authority allows discounts (example: paying early), you will need to create a new bill for the negative amount.

96 Vendors...How Do I? Print Sales Tax List - Filing Accrual? Tab: Vendor Control Group: List Option: Sales Tax Filing Explanation: The list is based on transactions not payables, meaning, that even once the sales tax is paid, it will still be available to report Sales/Freight amounts. Invoices that did not produce a payable (Non-taxable) will still show on this list and will be available regardless of the date selector setting. The list is based on Entry Date, not Invoice date. (this allows adjustments done in different months to be accounted for correctly). Example: An invoice was processed on June 1 showing as Non-Taxable. At the end of June it was reported to the Taxing Authority as a non-taxable sale and shows on the Sales Tax Filing list as a June non-taxable sale. In July, the invoice is changed to Taxable and processed again. June s filing report does not change (it is based off of actual data and should remain constant so it will match the data filed with the taxing authority). July s filing report will show a negative nontaxable income (based on the reversal of the original invoice) and a positive taxable income and tax due. This list can be filtered by invoice date to match against the P&L or Customer Sales List. However, the entry date should be used whenever preparing this list for filing taxes. Additional columns are available to customers under the wrench depending on which calculations you need to fill in your State Sales Tax Remittance forms. Continued... Vendor Page 35

If the vendor resource is set up with discounted terms or if you manually select a discounted terms type for the invoice, the system will calculate the discount for you. By selecting a discounted terms type, you will see additional fields available for discount date, non-discountable amount, discount and net due. The system will use the invoice date and terms to calculate the discount date and discount amount. Editing the non-discountable amount (normally used for non-discounted freight), will cause the system to automatically recalculate the discount amount and net due. Vendor Page 39

The situation may arise, however, when you do have a Product in the Product Resource that matches what you are free typing. In the following example, ball is entered as the Product. It s intended as a onetime ordering product. ASI SmartBooks has the feature where a lookup box is automatically displayed with all entries that contain ball. In this instance you do not want to use any of these Product Resources, so simply press the ESCAPE key and the lookup box will disappear. After pressing ESC, ball will remain your Product. Continue to enter the details. Order/Invoice Page 12

124 Orders/Invoices...How Do I? Use a Matrix? The matrix tool allows a user to enter product quantities based on a set of attributes. Most commonly, these attributes will be sizes and colors. However, they are not limited to how they can be used as long as it is two dimensional (rows and columns). The matrix tool can be used on Quotes, Orders and Invoices and is located on the sub-expander of each product line. Matrix templates can be created in advance through a Matrix resource which is also located under the product tab. A matrix template is not required because a matrix can also be created on the fly. When using a template, the attribute rows and columns will be copied into the resource (product, quote, order or invoice). This means you can adjust or change the template at any time and it will not change any resources in which the template was previously used. Amounts for each row/column combinations are then entered and the total amount is automatically updated on the Product line and on the Matrix itself. See how to use this powerful tool on the following pages.. Order/Invoice Page 14

154 Orders/Invoices...How Do I? Decide when to close an order/invoice? Short Answer: Based on your company s preference. You can handle it manually or use the pre-set criteria in System Preferences to automatically close an order/invoice. Manu- ally close order/invoices: Explanation: It is VERY IMPORTANT to understand that closing an order does not automatically mean it has been invoiced or completed. When done manually by you, this is determined by your company and not ASI SmartBooks. For Orders: You may choose to close the order: * Once you physically remove the job jacket from the work in process area. * Once the order has been invoiced. * When you are paid by the customer. * Once all the vendor bills have been applied. * Once all three things have occurred: customer invoice created, vendor bills have been applied, and the customer has paid the invoice. Whatever the determining factors are for deciding when an order is closed, the list should be reviewed to make sure those orders that need to be closed are. For Invoices: You may choose to close the invoice: * Once you physically remove the job jacket from the work in process area. * nce it has been paid by the customer (in this case the list would contain all the invoices found on a Receivables list). * Once all the vendor bills have been applied * Once vendor bills have been applied and the customer has paid the invoice. Whatever the determining factors are for deciding when an invoice is closed, the list should be reviewed to make sure those invoices that need to be closed are. Order/Invoice Page 44

156 Orders/Invoices...How Do I? Decide when to close an order/invoice? continued...closing Orders Invoice Processing: The system will change the status of an order to closed once all the invoice(s) associated with this order have been Processed. If not all product lines are marked complete the system assumes there is a need for an additional invoices and will not close the order. If the only product line on the invoice not marked complete was added to the invoice and not associated with the order, the order will close. Unchecking the complete box on a product line after an order has been closed will NOT reopen the order. NOTE: This option does not take into consideration if costs have been applied to the order or if any payments have been made by the customer. This would not be the best option for those that apply cost to the order because the order may not appear in the Bill Apply lookup because of its closed status. Invoice Processing, Receipts Allocate (Customer Paid in Full) The system will change the status of an order to closed once the criteria for Invoice Processing has been met (see Invoice Processing) and the receivables created from the invoices associated with the order have a zero balance. Receipts Allocate after Invoice Processing If payment is made after the invoice is processed, and the receivable balance(s) are zero, the order will close when the receipts allocate transaction is processed. Examples at the time of Receipts Allocate: Overpayment of one or more invoices associated with the order exists, the Order stays open. Underpayment of one or more invoices associated with the order exists, the Order stays open. Balances paid or adjusted off, the Order will close. Adjustments made to a Receipts-Allocate that causes a balance to reappear will not reopen the order.

Examples at the time of Invoice Processing: Partial deposit or over deposit and receivable balance is created, the Order stays open. Balances on invoices net to zero, the Order will close. Adjustments made to an already processed Invoice that causes a balance to no longer be zero will not reopen the order. However, if the user manually reopens the order and then the adjusted receivable is paid, the Order will close. This option does not take into consideration if costs have been applied to the order. This would not be the best option for those that apply cost to the order because the order may not appear in the Bill Apply lookup because of its closed status. Invoice Processing, Bill Apply The system will change the status of an order to closed once the criteria for Invoice Processing has been met (see Invoice Processing) and a Bill-Apply transaction has been posted to the order. Bill -Apply after Invoice Processing If bills are applied after the invoice(s) are processed, and all the vendors listed on the order/invoice have a bill apply transaction made, the Order will close. Examples at the time of Bill-Apply: Bill from one vendor has been applied; other vendors have not, the Order stays open. Bills from all vendors have been applied, however, an additional bill is expected, the Order will close. All vendors listed on the order/invoice have at least one Bill-Apply transaction for them against this order, the Order will close. Adjustments made to a Bill-Apply transaction that causes a status of a vendor for this order to show as unapplied will not reopen the order. Order/Invoice Page 47

Bills from all vendors have been applied, however, an additional bill is expected, the Order will close. All vendors listed on the order/invoice have at least one Bill-Apply transaction for them against this order, the Order will close. Adjustments made to an invoice (adding an additional vendor) will keep the order from closing since the invoice vendors update back to the order status window. The order will not close until all the vendors listed on the order and associated invoices have their applied status updated. This option does not take into consideration if any payments have been made against the order, but it does check if costs have been applied to the order. This would be a suggested option for those that apply cost to the order. Invoice Processing, Receipt Allocate, Bill Apply The system will change the status of an order to closed once the criteria for all of the previously mentioned above (see Invoice Processing, Receipt Allocate and Bill Apply) have been met. This option takes into consideration if any payments have been made against the order and checks if costs have been applied to the order. This would be the number one suggestion to give customers. It allows for the order to stay open until all the processes associated with the order have been completed. Order/Invoice Page 48

195 Accounting...How Do I? Reconcile a Cash Ledger Account? Tab: Accounting Control Group: Banking Option: Reconcile Explanation: A ledger account must exist for each bank account you want to reconcile. At least one bank account was created during your conversion or company setup. If you have multiple bank accounts, a ledger account needs to be created for each account.

You can also add these Ledger entries under the Ledger expander (no refresh is necessary). 8. The difference at the bottom must be zero to process. The ASI SmartBooks software will do a calculation where the total of all transactions on the bank statement need to match the total of all transactions cleared in the software. There is no date sensitivity so voided checks and posting to different months are not an issue. 9. If the difference at the bottom is not zero, simply double check the beginning and ending balances and all cleared transactions. Most bank statements give a total for cleared deposits and cleared checks. These can be used to determine any differences. Accounting Page 5

201 Import an Electronic Bank Statement? Overview Accounting...How Do I? The Bank Reconciliation process has been enhanced to allow the reconciliation of your bank accounts using a bank statement file that many financial institutions have available and is referred to as an OFX file. You do need to check with your financial institution to confirm if they provide this type of file. If your bank provides this ability, generally the process requires you to log into your financial institution s web account, access and select to download your bank statement, select your range of dates and, in some cases, the types of transactions to be included in the OFX file. Once your selections are complete, you will download and save the file. Company Setup Indicate your folder location for your bank statements: Bank Statement Import Folder - The folder where your downloaded bank statement will be saved.

202 Accounting...How Do I? Import an Electronic Bank Statement?, Continued Deposits Matching is performed through several passes. The first pass is matching purely on the amount of the transactions. The 2nd pass will sum a series of deposits on a specific day and attempt to match it to the OFX file transactions. If the transaction is not matched to an existing deposit record, then it will be added to the ledger as an Other Deposit type transaction. You will need to review and edit this ledger entry to enter the proper revenue account. Payments Matching is performed only on the check number. If the transaction is not matched to an existing payment record, it will be added to the ledger as an Other Payment type transaction. You will need to review and edit this ledger entry to enter the proper expense account. Continued... Accounting Page 10

203 Accounting...How Do I? Import an Electronic Bank Statement?, Continued Ledgers Matching is performed based on the specific transaction amounts matching. If the transaction is not matched to an existing ledger record, then it will be added to the ledger as an Other Payment or Other Deposit, depending on the transaction amount. You will need to review and edit these ledger entries to enter the proper expense or revenue account. To assist the operator, the reconciliation contains two new columns: Action and Transaction Detail. Action will indicate Accepted, Attention, or Confirmed. Accepted indicates that a transaction match occurred. Attention is for payments, and indicates that the bank transaction amount and the ASI SmartBooks amounts do not agree. This will in turn not check the transaction as Cleared and will require action by the operator. If the operator does indicate cleared, then the action will update to Confirmed. Transaction Detail will display key transaction details from the OFX file to help the operator understand what the transaction pertains too. The difference at the bottom must be zero to process. The ASI SmartBooks software will do a calculation where the total of all transactions on the bank statement need to match the total of all transactions cleared in the software. There is no date sensitivity so voided checks and posting to different months are not an issue. If the difference at the bottom is not zero, simply double check the beginning and ending balances and all cleared transactions. Most bank statements give a total for cleared deposits and cleared checks. These can be used to determine any differences. Accounting Page 11

205 Accounting...How Do I? Reconcile Credit Cards Ledger Accounts? Tab: Accounting Control Group: Banking Option: Reconcile Explanation: ASI SmartBooks allows you to reconcile credit cards in the same manner as bank accounts with some minor differences. Reconciling should be done when the credit card statement is received. This is a separate procedure from recording the amount owed to the credit card company based on the statement balance. Initial Setup: 1. Be sure a Vendor is entered for each Credit Card. Note: Refer to the Vendor section of the FAQ for more information on paying a Vendor with a credit card. Continued... Accounting Page 13

206 Accounting...How Do I? Reconcile Credit Cards Ledger Accounts?, Continued Be sure a Ledger is created for each Credit Card Account. NOTE: Type of account is a customer preference and will not affect how credit cards are processed. It will, however, affect filters in certain lists. Reconcile process: 1. Make sure the beginning and ending balances for the credit card statement are entered as negative amounts in the reconciliation screen. A negative amount is used to represent the amount owed on the credit card statement. (This is different than the balances entered for a bank account, which is not owed, but instead available for use.) 2. Charges on the credit card statement that have been recorded in Bills-Pay will appear under the Checks expander. Each of these charges will have a check number assigned, although when reconciling credit cards these numbers are arbitrary and are not associated with any information on the credit card statement.

225 Supervise...How Do I? Change amount of commission? Change the information on the invoice and process the invoice again Tab: Customer or Accounting Control Group: Invoice Option: Invoice Manager Explanation: Because commissions are calculated by the system at the time an invoice is processed, changes to the commission calculations can be made by changing the information on the invoice and processing again. Open the invoice associated with this commission. Record any changes necessary to alter the commission amount of the order (additional costs, commission percentage), and process invoice again. EXCEPTION: If this commission came from your conversion, you will adjust this through History.

226 Supervise...How Do I? Record commission payments? Tab: Vendor Control Group: Bill Option: Pay Explanation: When an invoice is processed, the system will post a commission for the appropriate sales person based on the information on the invoice. These commissions automatically update the Bills- Pay screen and are available for immediate payment. Each commission calculated by the system will reference if that commission is tied to an invoice that has been paid by the customer. This will allow the ability to pick and choose which commissions will be paid based on the company s agreement with the salesperson. Under the Vendor Tab, select Pay in the Bill section. This will allow the recording of a payment to a vendor including a salesperson. Select the commissions to pay. Commissions generated through the invoicing process will update automatically when the customer pays the invoice. Supervise Page 3

227 Supervise...How Do I? Advance commission to a salesperson? Tab: Vendor Control Group: Bill Option: New, Pay, then Checks Explanation: An advance is a payment to the salesperson before an invoice is processed. They are entered for a salesperson through Bill-New option by selecting Advance under the classification field and entering the amount of the advance as a positive number. This will show as a payable to the salesperson. After the advance is recorded through Bill-Pay and paid through Bill-Checks, the system will then automatically show this payment as an advance (represented by a negative payable). After the actual invoice is received and recorded, the advance can then be used to reduce the check amount when the invoice is paid. To fully process a salespersons advance there are four steps (New, Apply, Pay, Checks). New: New is always the first required step. Create a new bill for the appropriate salesperson and denote this is an advance payment by selecting Advance under classification. Once completed, these funds flow into Pending Advances and Unpaid Pending Advances. Pay: Record the advance bill using cash (handwritten check), check, or credit card. Select the appropriate salesperson to pay from the list. Select the advance, which will be listed among any other invoice and Select Process. The advance amount will now come out of Pending Advances and go into your Advance on Purchases. Supervise Page 4

229 Supervise...How Do I? Add a User? Contact Upgrade Sales at ASI Computer Systems: Explanation: New users are added through the registration process (with ASI Computer Systems) that authenticates the software during first time access. At the time of original purchase, an is sent to the primary operator that contains their registration serial key (s) and user names. On the login window, press the down arrow on the combo box to see all possible users. On the first login, the user will be prompted for authorization to enter their registration serial key. Manage is where individual users can be maintained. Each user should be assigned a specific security role. You can also enter an address and ESP Online or ASI SmartSales login credentials. If the user is not found in the drop down list, there are several different situations a user might find themselves in: Situation #1: The user doesn t see their name in the dropdown and also doesn t see any names beginning with User_. Solution: All the virtual user licenses have been assigned to users and the user has three options: 1. Contact Upgrade Sales ASI Computer Systems to add more users. 2. Login as one of the existing users. 3. Have their software administrator, change one of the existing logins to the users name and reset the password. NOTE: the assumption here is that an existing user no longer has a need to login to the software (IE: No longer with the company or longer needs access to the ASI SmartBooks software). Situation #2: The user doesn t see their name in the dropdown but does see names beginning with User_. Solution: Logins that start with User are unassigned logins. The user should contact their Software Administrator to request a login. The administrator will login to ASI SmartBooks and change one of the unassigned logins to the user name and select to reset the password before saving. Situation #3: The user is trying to activate but does not have an registration serial key. Solution: The user or user s company has not received their registration serial key (s). This could be: 1. User has downloaded and installed software for demo purposes. ASI Computer Systems has not added them to the registration/activation database and has not ed the key (s). 2. User has downloaded and installed software after purchasing. ASI Computer Systems has not added them to the registration/activation database and has not ed the key (s). 3.

240 Supervise...How Do I? Create a Commission Table? What is a Commission Table? Explanation: Commission tables allow you to have the system automatically calculate a salesperson s commission percent, on a sliding scale instead of a flat rate, on a quote, order, or invoice. This calculation can either be based on the profitability of commissionable products or on a salesperson's YTD invoiced sales. Multiple commission tables may be set up (possibly for different types of orders or for individual salespeople). However, a commission table may be assigned to multiple salespersons.

Each range will contain a commission % Beginning Level 0.00% Ending Level 99.99% How do I add a commission table to a Salesperson? A commission table may be assigned to a salesperson within their salesperson resource. When the salesperson is then added to a customer, quote, order, invoice or program, the commission table will default in also. However, if a salesperson resource does not contain a commission table, it may be manually added to the salesperson record within a customer, quote, order, invoice or program. Note: When assigning a commission table to a salesperson, you will still want to assign the salesperson a default commission percent greater than 0.00 as 0.00 will be considered non-commissionable and the table won t be read. Add a Commission Table Default Commission % Supervise Page 19

243 Supervise...How Do I? Add a Commission Table to a Salesperson?, Continued. Upon saving the record (or processing the invoice), the program will check to see if any salespersons have been assigned a commission table. Based on the type of commission table, each salesperson s commission percent will be checked and determined if a change is needed. Note: In order for the commission recalculation to occur for either commission table type (GP% or YTD Sales), the commissionable products/charges must originally have a commission percent greater than 0.00 as any products/charge with a 0.00 percent will be considered non-commissionable. If a product/charge has a 0.00 commission percent, it will not change with the recalculation and will remain at 0.00 commission percent. If all products have a 0.00 commission percent, the commission on the quote/order/invoice will not be recalculated, even if there is a commission table assigned. Commission Calculation Based on GP% Table - The gross profit for all products and additional charges which have a commission percent greater than 0.00 will be accumulated to determine the commissionable gross profit %. Products will a 0.00 commission percent will be ignored. If the new commission % is different than the commission % existing on a product, the percent on all commissionable products/charges will be changed to the new percent. A window will appear notifying you of the new commission percent. Commission Calculation Based on YTD Sales Table Each quote, order, or invoice contain a date (quote date/ order date/invoice date). Based on that date/time (all the way to midnight), the salesperson s YTD Sales will be accumulated (from the beginning of that calendar year) and checked against the Comm Table to see if the Comm% should be changed. The final commission percent will be determined by the invoice date, once the invoice is created. Example: A quote is entered on March 15th. The salesperson s YTD sales will be determined by invoiced sales between January 1st and March 15th. That quote is turned into an order on April 12th. The salesperson s YTD sales used to determine the order s commission percent will then be determined by invoiced sales between January 1st and April 12th, so the commission percent may change. Then, on June 20th, the order has an invoice created. The salesperson s YTD sales used to determine the invoice s commission percent will then be determined by invoiced sales between January 1st and June 20 th.. Supervise Page 20
