VISUAL NEWSLETTER JUN 2001

 


ACCOUNTING FEATURES

 

Over the years we have created a number of programs that provide features not available in the standard Libra Accounting Modules. Many of these programs are available in The Visual Accounting Features Module that most clients have installed. Other features are largely customized based on individual user requirements. A brief description of some of the more useful features follows:

 

General Ledger Data Transfer

 

- Transfers journal entries from one company and period in one database to another company and period in another database. Can be used to consolidate multiple databases into a single reporting entity.

 

A/P Tax Reconciliation Report

 

- Lists payable invoices with separate totals for GST. Can be used to catch mistakes in invoice data entry resulting in lost credits.

 

A/P Cheque Date Corrections

 

- Allows a range of cheques to be dated as required before printing. Cheques 1001 through 1200 could be dated from Jan 5, 2000 to Jan 5, 2001 for instance.

 

A/R Tax Reconciliation Report

 

- Lists receivable invoices including Net amounts, GST, PST and Total columns. Helps to catch tax omissions that can be costly later. Highlights mistakes in customer tax codes. Useful during tax audits.
