Suppliers | Transactions | Pay Selections | Bank Deposit

The Bank Deposit Entry Report is only available after Auto Bank Entry has been selected in Supplier Options. This allows the creation of a file which banking software can read to transfer funds directly from/to bank accounts. 

The report will only display those suppliers with one or more invoices marked for payment via Pay Selection and only for suppliers that are paid by Bank. Manual Payments do not generate details for Bank Deposit.

A Cash Required List should be created before processing Bank Deposit to check the correct invoices have been marked for payment. All invoices with ** at the end of the line have been marked for payment.

You can select to generate Remittance Advices for the bank payments updated. If you select to generate Remittance Advices, ensure they are printed and the file deleted, otherwise details for Remittance Advices will continue to accumulate.

Note: Suppliers' details will not be updated with the bank payment details until the Bank Deposit has been printed and the Bank File updated. Once the list has been printed, you indicate whether the Bank File has updated correctly or not.

Remittance Information
Remittance Advices required?Set to Yes to store remittance details for the payments you process. You can then print remittance advices using the Remittance Advices program. If you are never going to print remittance advices, set to No to avoid accumulating unnecessary data.
Remittance Advice Number SeriesLets you use several independent series of remittance advice numbers. For example, you could have one series called CC for payments made by credit card and another called CHQ for cheque payments.
Next Remittance Advice Number

Stores the number of the next remittance advice to generate. The system increments this number by 1 each time you process an invoice payment that also requires a remittance advice. When you next print remittance advices, the system prints the corresponding Next Remittance Advice Number on the remittance advice.

Note: that if you also generate remittances manually, or from another system, you may need to adjust the Next Remittance Advice Number manually.

Remittance Advice Form Code

Choose the layout on which to print this run of remittance advices.

If you are paying by credit card, the layout needs to show the details of the card. To create a suitable layout, you can first copy a sample layout from the PRINT\REMIT subdirectory of your Attaché program directory to the PRINT\REMIT subdirectory of your data directory. Then use Forms Designer to customise the layout to suit your needs.)

To withdraw the payment from a different General Ledger bank account:

1. Set Override G/L Bank Account to Yes.

2. Type the appropriate General Ledger bank account into the G/L Bank Account field.
