Automatically Allocating Customer Payments from Batch File to Invoice

This document explains how you allocate verified and adjusted customer payments in the form of electronically transferred receipt orders received from bank to your customer invoices.

Outcome

Receipt orders in a batch file are allocated to customer invoice records in accounts receivable. An accounting journal, a customer payment journal, and a checklist are printed.

If any allocated receipt orders need to be corrected, continue with Adjusting Customer Payments.

Accounts receivable and the general ledger are updated. For information on account entries created, see Allocating Customer Payments to Invoice.

The receipt orders may include variances like cash discount, VAT handling, advances, or exchange rate differences. If so, these are recorded separately under accounting event AR40 (Automatic customer payments).
