Service Invoice Processing

Service Invoice Processing

Application Overview

 

Service Invoice Processing is an application that you will use very often if you wish to generate customer invoices from Accounts Receivable.  The invoices printed in this application must be designed using the Invoice Form Setup.

 

You can enter four types of transactions in this application.  The four transaction types are invoice, recurring invoice, credit memo and quote.  Invoice or recurring invoice type transactions will make up the majority of the transactions processed in this application.  The transactions are entered using a simple one-screen entry system.  The screen appears in the form of an invoice to make it easy to see the items on the invoice as well as the invoice total.  A maximum of 99 service numbers can be entered per invoice.  Additional invoice comments can be included on the invoice by entering a blank service number and entering the comments in the service description column.  In order to expedite the service entry process, customers that are not on file may be added during the entry of service invoice transactions.  If the customer entered is on file then a window will appear displaying important information about the customer.  This window will disappear when service line items are being entered.

 

An invoice or recurring invoice type transaction is used to charge or bill a customer's account for services rendered.  If the service is rendered on a regular schedule then a recurring invoice type transaction may be used to bill the service.  The recurring invoice can occur every month or at a certain number of days interval. 

 

A credit memo type transaction is used to credit your customer's account with a transaction other than a payment.

 

A quote type transaction is used in order to produce a printed quotation of the proposed services to your customer.  If your customer decides to accept your quote then the quote type transaction may be changed to an invoice type transaction to be billed.  If your customer decides not to accept your quote then the transaction can be deleted.

 

Note:  In some cases upon leaving the service number and description columns, the service number or description may be truncated.  The service number or description will be exploded to its original size when the arrow key or field number selection is positioned at the appropriate column.

If the invoice will always be issued on a certain day of the month, even if there will be more than one month between invoices, enter M.

If the invoice is issued every specified number of days (such as once every 30 days), then enter N.

 

There is no default for this field.

14. Last Date (continued)

If, for some reason, you wish to have the recurring invoice posting program skip a service invoice or two, this can be done by setting this date to the date of the last invoice which should be skipped.  This would cause the system to think that invoices had already been created up to this date, so it would skip them.

Post Service Invoices

Application Overview

 

The Post Service Invoices application transfers all transactions that were previously created in Service Invoice Processing into the A/R Open Item File.  In addition, it sends this information to the Customer File, Salesman File, A/R Distribution To G/L file, and the Service File.  Consequently the result of posting serves to automatically adjust the balance that a given customer owes your business for services rendered, period to date sales, and other related variables recorded in the customer, salesman, distribution and service invoice files.      

 

When you perform a posting, the system prints a journal of all service transactions that were posted.

 

Run Instructions

 

Select Post Service Invoices from the pull down A/R Processing window.   The following screen will then be displayed:
