Overview

The Cash Book Payments form is used to record the following transactions:

  • Payments made to creditors (creates a credit transaction in the creditor record)
  • Payments made to debtors (creates a debit transaction (invoice) in the debtor record)
  • Monies paid directly to a General Ledger account – e.g. cleaning, staff amenities, petty cash etc.

Payments to creditors can be allocated against creditor invoices and debit transactions on a transaction by transaction basis.
