4 4 ProStix Smartstore Training Manual - Accounts Payable 1 Introduction to Accounts Payable The ProStix Accounts Payable module enables you to manage all your dealings with your suppliers/creditors. It is fully integrated to the rest of ProStix through to the General Ledger and is closely integrated with the Purchasing & Receipting module which is primarily used for stock purchases. As well as the standard functionality, there are also some optional modules that extend the software in particular areas. Please talk to your Sterland Computing representative to see if any of these modules would be of benefit to you in your business. The following diagram illustrates the functions normally carried out within the Accounts Payable department and are therefore covered within this training document. Accounts Payable Module Suppliers - Stock & Expense Invoices Suppliers are companies who provide you with either stock to on-sell to your own customers, or goods and services to use within your own business. The main difference between these two types is not so much in their setup, but rather in their use. For suppliers who provide stock, you generally go through the processes of raising a
5 Accounts Payable 5 purchase order for the stock, receipting the stock at goods-in and then Creditor's Invoice Approval which matches the supplier's invoice to the stock receipt. The payment can then be automatically selected in line with the payment terms and flagged for payment via cheque or direct credit. For suppliers who supply your own business, most customers process the ordering and receipting outside of the ProStix purchasing system and then use the Accounts Payable Transaction Processing batch facility to process the invoices and create the payments. Please note that stock invoices should not be processed through the Accounts Payable batch processing method. This is because when the stock receipt is processed, General Ledger postings are made to the stock and purchases clearing accounts. If a stock invoice is processed through the Accounts Payable batch processing method, then the entry to the purchases clearing account will not be reversed, as it as by the Creditors Invoice Approval process (the other balancing entries are to the trade creditors and GST purchases accounts). The Accounts Payable Clerk: checks that the supplier invoice matches the goods that have been receipted into stock and that the invoice total matches what was expected. keys the invoices into an Invoice Batch through the Accounts Payable module. completes and posts the batch. selects invoices for payment. prints cheques and allocates cheque numbers or processes the payments as Direct Debits.
6 6 ProStix Smartstore Training Manual - Accounts Payable 2 Accounts Payable Terminology Accounts Payable The use of credit with importance being placed on the payment of creditors on time as savings can be made by way of discounts received for prompt payment and buying in bulk as well as the advantage gained by being recognised as a good paying customer. Accounts Payable Control Account Records all liabilities owed, whether they are for trade or non-trade goods and services. The balance of this account is the difference between the liabilities incurred and those that have been paid, and for reconciliation purposes this balance should be equal to the total of all creditors balances. Credit Note Is issued by sellers when goods bought on credit by customers are returned by mutual agreement, or a price adjustment is necessary because of damage, overcharging, short delivery etc. Delivery Docket Contains all of the information found on an invoice usually without the unit and total price information. It is sent in duplicate with the goods to the purchaser, one copy of which is returned signed by the purchaser to the seller to acknowledge the receipt of the goods. Diary Notes A narrative field in Customer and Supplier Maintenance and Enquiry, for the purposes of recording relevant comments about the account. This facility is particularly useful for debt collection activities for recording special circumstances justifying late payment, and or promises of payment. Goods Receipting Acceptance into store of product delivered from a supplier, and the completion of all accompanying documentation. Internal Sale A sale made by one Branch to another or to en internal customer. Sometimes called a Stock Transfer. Invoice A record of the detail of goods sold on credit to individual purchasers, originated by the seller of the goods.
7 Accounts Payable 7 Invoice Approval An electronic signature that indicates to the system that a supplier s invoice and all accompanying documentation are correct. This essentially gives approval for a cheque to be drawn when the invoice time payment terms have been satisfied. Purchase Order Is the official order of an individual or organisation requesting that another organisation supplies specified goods or services and is the basis of a contract. Request For Credit Notification to a supplier that goods are being returned without having been receipted (i.e.: not accepted) due to being faulty, broken etc, or for incorrect charge details. Sales Tax Is a tax imposed at rates varying according to the nature of the goods, levied as a percentage of the sale price of the goods when sold by manufacturers or wholesalers. Settlement Discount Is applied when an account is paid and is conditional upon the buyer paying for goods within a prescribed time. If payment is late, the discount is not allowed. Standard Cost For the current accounting period, stock issued will be charged to the cost of goods sold at a standard rate, regardless of the purchase price. Any variance caused by a different purchase price would be charged to a variance account (purchase gains and losses) which is ultimately charged to profit and loss. This method is used mainly in manufacturing businesses where there is a mix of raw materials incorporated in the end product. Standard Discount Contract A customer-specific contract designed to complement a Price Module or Discount Group. This is designed for pricing of any product that is used by the customer but is either not discounted in the Module, or an extra-special price must be given to meet competition. Statement Provides details in respect of unpaid amounts from the last period, purchases for this period, credit notes issued and payments received.
8 8 ProStix Smartstore Training Manual - Accounts Payable Stock Receipt The processing of a Purchase Order to notify the system of incoming goods which were ordered from a supplier on the specific Purchase Order. Stock Return/Stock Reversal Notification to a supplier that goods are being returned for crediting after having been Goods Receipted. Reversal is the action taken to acknowledge receipt of replacement goods. Supervisor Password A security feature that requires an authorising password from a suitably-empowered senior employee before certain functions can be performed by a 'restricted' user. Supplier Invoice Maintenance Facility for the processing and adjustment payment amounts of suppliers' invoices. Tax Exempt Goods used for specific purposes may not be subject to sales tax by their very nature if, for example, they are raw materials, they are aids to manufacture or they are certain containers for sale with goods. Unit of Measure Classification of how a product is supplied and charged. E.g.: Each, Length, Kg, M3, M2 etc. Volume Break Quantity of a product beyond which the supplier offers an extra discount, e.g. purchasing between 0 and 99 may attract a 5% discount whereas, purchasing between 100 and 999 may attract a discount of 8%. Volume Discount Quantity of a product beyond which a customer receives an extra discount.

10 10 ProStix Smartstore Training Manual - Accounts Payable 4 Creating/Maintaining Suppliers 4.1 Creating a New Supplier In this lesson you will learn how to add new supplier (creditor) records. Suppliers are other businesses that your company purchases stock or supplies from. 'Stock' refers to products purchased for sale to your companies customers. 'Supplies' refers to items used within your own company, e.g. stationery items for the office. Creditors are suppliers who negotiate trading terms with your company where you purchase items on credit. After the items are received into stock, your company is then obliged to pay for them within the trading terms that have been agreed (e.g. 14 days from invoice, or 30 days from statement). 1.From the 'Main Menu' select the options - 'Accounts Payable' - 'Supplier Maintenance' - 'New Supplier'. 2.Key in a Supplier Code and Name. 3.The basic supplier record has now been created but will require more details before it can be used, these details can be added/modified using the options down the side of the screen. 4.Select the Update option to add address and phone details etc. 5.Select the Trading Terms option to enter information such as the number of days credit the supplier is giving you and whether to pay them by cheque or direct credit. 6.Press/Click <F4> when finished maintaining this supplier to leave the program.

17 Accounts Payable 17 6 Maintaining Invoices & Credit Notes In this lesson you will learn how to make alterations to supplier invoices that have already been posted using the Invoice Post program. You can alter some of the data that makes up the invoice and you can also change the payment status code so that invoices are held from payment or selected to be paid. Pre-Requisites: An invoice must have been entered and posted to the General Ledger for this supplier. 1.From the 'Main Menu' select options - 'Accounts Payable' - 'Transaction Processing' - 'Invoice Maintenance'. 2.The next screen will display a list of suppliers to choose from. Select the required supplier by using the <Page Up/Down> and <Arrow> keys or start typing the supplier name to locate them automatically then press <Enter>. 3.The next screen will display a list of unpaid or part-paid invoices for the selected supplier that have been posted using the Invoice Post program. If the invoice you are looking for does not appear on the screen, then press the <Page Up/Down> and <Arrow> keys, or key the invoice number to locate it automatically then press <Enter>. The next screen will display the current payment details for the selected invoice. Status Code: key a valid status code: D = Defer This invoice will be by-passed by the next cheque print run only. Once all the payments for this run have been processed, the program will then change the status code from D to P. P = To Pay The invoice payment selection program will ONLY select invoices to pay with a status code of P. H = Hold This invoice will be by-passed by the invoice payment selection program. The invoice will remain held, and therefore not payable, until the status is manually changed. S = Selected This status code is appended to an invoice once the invoice payment selection program has selected it. A cheque for the invoice will be printed during the next Cheque Print run. Note that the sort order on the browser screen in this program is by status then transaction; so when you change the status to 'selected', the transaction will then be sorted to the bottom of the list. Reason for Hold: key the code that refers to the reason an invoice has been put on
18 18 ProStix Smartstore Training Manual - Accounts Payable hold i.e. if an 'H' appears in the Status Code field. <F3> is available to search on this field if required. These Reason Codes are defined in the Miscellaneous Tables option on the Configuration Menu under System Administration. Payment Amount: key the partial payment amount if a partial payment is to be made for the selected invoice. Held Amount: key the held amount into this field if an amount on the invoice is to be held for payment. Payment Date: key the date to pay the invoice. The invoice payment selection program uses this field. Press <Enter> to by-pass this field. Discount Override %: key the discount percentage to be taken on this invoice. This field assumes two decimal places. If you key a percentage here, do not key an amount in the Discount Amount field. Discount Override $: key the discount $ amount to be taken on this invoice. This field assumes two decimal places. If you key an amount here, do not key a percentage value in the Discount % field. Take Discount: key 'yes' to take the discount regardless of late payment. Branch Code: key the code for the branch that goods on the invoice were delivered to. <F3> is available to search if required. Invoice Date: key the supplier date printed on the invoice. Once you have finished keying the required data, the program will take you back to the previous screen. 4.Continue maintaining any further invoices or press/click <F4> to go back to the 'Invoice Maintenance' menu. Review: Change supplier invoices even though they have been posted to the General Ledger. Change the payment details of supplier invoices. Change the status code of a supplier invoice so it is deferred, held or selected for the next payment run.
19 Accounts Payable 19 7 Payment Selection 7.1 Selecting Invoices for Payment - Batch Mode In this lesson you will learn how to automatically select supplier invoices for payment so that they are included in the next cheque or direct debit payment run. The invoices are selected for payment based on a combination of the invoice date and the supplier trading terms. Pre-Requisites: Invoices must have been entered and posted to the General Ledger (for several suppliers). 1.From the 'Main Menu' select options 'Accounts Payable' - 'Transaction Processing' - 'Payment Selection'. 2.Select the 'Select Payments' option and key in the Due Date (& Payment date) to select all invoices due up to that due date. This is based on combining the invoice date and the supplier trading terms. You can filter the report by supplier group or supplier, so if you have grouped your suppliers by payment terms, e.g. '7 days', '14 days', then you can use that grouping here for example to just select those invoices for suppliers where you will get discount if you pay within 7 days. (Please note there is a flag on the supplier record that can be set so you can still claim the discount even if you are paying late.) You can also filter the selection to only pick up suppliers where there are discounts to make sure these get paid first if there is limited funds available. The total maximum payment amount can also be useful in this instance. The maximum amount refers to the total of the invoices for a supplier, so if you enter $5, here, then all suppliers who have totals due that are under $5,000 will have their invoices selected. There is also a filter to only select suppliers that have payment terms of 'm' (monthly). You can also use the <F9> Select key from this screen to flag a set of non-contiguous suppliers. After pressing/clicking <F9> you are presented with a list of suppliers. Use the <Up/Down Arrow> keys to move to the suppliers you want and press <Space-Bar> to select them. If you select on e in error, then use the <Space-Bar> again to de-select it. When you have finished making your selections, press/click <F1> and you will be presented with a confirmation list. Then either use <F4> to go back or <F1> to proceed. 3. Print out selections to confirm those that are to be paid. If any invoices have previously been selected, either manually or by batch selection, then they will also appear on the selection report. 4. If any are not to be paid, use 'Invoice Maintenance' to deselect single invoices.
20 20 ProStix Smartstore Training Manual - Accounts Payable Review: Do a payment selection run for all suppliers in the system. Filter the payment selection to only pick up suppliers where there are discounts. Filter the payment selection using a total maximum payment. Filter the payment selection to only select suppliers with monthly payment terms. Print a report to confirm payment selections. Manually deselect any invoices that are not to be paid.
21 Accounts Payable Selecting Invoices for Payment - Manual Mode In this lesson you will learn how to manually select individual invoices for payment in the next cheque or direct debit payment run.

The other filters on the screen may also be used if required. 3.A Payment Deselection report will then print listing the changes from the original Payment Selection report. Review: Do a payment deselection run using various filters.
23 Accounts Payable Confirming Invoice Selections In this lesson you will learn how to produce a report so the current payment selections can be checked prior to actually doing a cheque or direct credit payment run. Pre-Requisites: Invoices must have been previously selected for payment (for several suppliers). 1.From the 'Main Menu' select options - 'Accounts Payable' - 'Transaction Processing' - 'Payment Selection'. 2.Select the 'Print Current Selections' option. 3.Fill out the payment date for the next payment run, leave the other fields as they are. 4.Select the appropriate output option to either print, or fax the report. 5.Press/Click <F4> to return to the 'Transaction Processing' menu. Review: Print a report to check the current payment selections before actually doing the payment run.
24 24 ProStix Smartstore Training Manual - Accounts Payable 8 Paying Accounts 8.1 Printing Cheques &/or Remittance Advices In this lesson you will learn how to do a cheque run. Pre-Requisites: Invoices must have been previously selected for payment 1. From the 'Main Menu' select options - 'Accounts Payable' - 'Transaction Processing' - 'Print Cheques'. 2. Select whether you are using NuVu output or not. 3. Select the company. 4.

Select the appropriate output option. 7. Press/Click <F4> to return to the 'Transaction Processing' menu. Review: Print cheques &/or remittance advices in a payment run.
25 Accounts Payable Allocating Cheque Numbers In this lesson you will learn how to allocate cheque numbers after a cheque run has been performed. Cheque numbers must be allocated before the next cheque run will work. Pre-Requisites: Cheques must have been previously printed in a cheque run. 1. From the 'Main Menu' select options - 'Accounts Payable' - 'Transaction Processing' - 'Allocate Cheque Numbers'. 2. Enter the cheque numbers used or going to be used (if handwriting cheques) taking into consideration the number of cheques displayed at top of window and press/click<f1>. There are three groups of numbers in case of printing errors. So if some cheques get mangled by the printer then you can just allocate the numbers for those ones that are ok and then reprint the cheques that got destroyed and then allocate those numbers. This is more likely to happen if you are using a dot matrix printer than a laser. It is important that the right cheque numbers get allocated to the right payments in the system or it will make bank reconciliation or payment enquiry difficult in the future. 3. Print the cheque summary report. Note: If handwriting cheques they must be written in the order specified on the report. Review: Allocate cheque numbers after a cheque payment run.
26 26 ProStix Smartstore Training Manual - Accounts Payable 8.3 Paying Suppliers by Direct Credit In this lesson you will learn how to pay suppliers by Direct Credit. This method enables you to pay Suppliers electronically; either by sending a file of payment transactions to your bank for payment, or by getting a printout that you can then use to pay them via internet banking.

Select the appropriate output option. 6.If you selected to produce a file copy for electronic submission, then you will be asked a further question as to the international banking format you wish to use and the path/filename for the output file. 7. Press <F4> to return to the 'Transaction Processing' menu. 8.If you want the system to output an electronic (.aba) file that can be sent straight to the bank, then your company will need to purchase the ProStix e-banking module. If this module is not installed, you will just get the report printed out that you can then use to key the information into your internet banking website for the direct credits to suppliers. Review: Pay suppliers electronically as an alternative method to paying them by cheque.
27 Accounts Payable Cancelling a Payment In this lesson you will learn how to cancel a cheque or Direct Credit payment made to a supplier. Pre-Requisites: A cheque or direct credit run must have been done that includes the payment to be cancelled 1.From the 'Main Menu' select options - 'Accounts Payable' - 'Transaction Processing' - 'Payment Cancellation'. 2.Select the company, bank account, payment (cheque) number and period to post. If you now do a supplier enquiry, the transactions will have moved back from 'Transaction History' to 'Transactions' An audit report will print so you have a written record of the payment being reversed. Review: Cancel payments made to suppliers by cheque or direct credit.
28 28 ProStix Smartstore Training Manual - Accounts Payable 8.5 Prepaying a Supplier before Receipt of Goods The normal process for paying for goods involves the receipt of goods and the receipt of an invoice which is then approved, selected for payment, and paid. However, some suppliers from time to time will request a prepayment of either the full amount or part of the purchase value before they will release their goods for delivery. To make this payment requires the entry of a prepayment transaction into the Supplier account so that a payment can be drawn and sent to the supplier. In this lesson you will learn how to pay suppliers for purchase orders before receiving stock. Note: This process requires a new control account 'Prepaid Purchases' to be defined for the branch requiring a prepayment to be made. This account needs to be created as a balance sheet account and loaded against the branch in branch maintenance. If this account is not defined then an error message will appear when trying to create the prepayment transaction. 1.Create your purchase order if this has not already been created. 2.Select options - 'Accounts Payable' - 'Transaction Processing' - 'Invoice Entry'. Create a batch and key in the details of the invoice, (the invoice number is irrelevant as this will be automatically changed later in the process) including the order number of the purchase order that requires payment. For the amount, make sure that you key at least the amount that the supplier wants you to pre-pay. Press/click <F1>. 3.The 'Invoice Type' selection box will appear next. Select the type of 'Pre-Paid Stock Invoice'. You will then be given a message, 'Invoice number changed to a pre-paid invoice'. Press <Enter> and you will see that the invoice number has changed to a 'PP' number. Press/Click <F1> for the GST amount and you will be given the information message, 'This invoice has been allocated to the branch Pre-paid Purchases account'. Press <Enter> to continue. 4.If there are no further invoices to process then you can <F4> out and complete and post the batch. The Creditors Control Account will be credited and the branch Pre-Paid Purchase Orders and GST Purchases accounts will be debited. 5.The prepayment transaction will now be on the supplier account as a payable invoice to be 'Selected' and 'Paid' as per any other invoice. 6.After the goods are receipted and the real invoice for the goods arrives, process it through 'Purchasing & Receipting' - 'Creditors Invoice Approval' as normal. After you press/click <F7> to allocate the invoice to the G/L account, you will be presented with the message 'Reversing Pre-Paid Invoices $', where $ is the dollar amount of the pre-payment. Press <Enter> then <F4>. If you have finished adding invoices then complete and post the batch. 7.The initial prepayment transaction created in steps 3 & 4 will be reversed off the supplier account leaving the account with the amount of the prepayment made and the invoice processed in step 7 leaving any residual balance still to be paid.
29 Accounts Payable 29 Review: Make pre-payments to suppliers where they demand for all or part-payment before delivery. The system automatically reverses the pre-payment for you as it keeps track of it by the purchase order number.
