Sales Ledger

The Sales Ledger report is a summary of the position on each Customer's account. It lists the Invoices that you have issued to your Customers that have not yet been paid. For each Invoice, the Due Date, the outstanding amount and the number of days by which it is overdue are shown, so, together with the Receipts Forecast, Open Invoice Customer Statement and Periodic Customer Statement reports, it is a very useful tool for debt-chasing purposes.

When printed to screen, this report has the Standard ERP Drill-down feature. Click Windows/Mac OS X) or tap (iOS/Android) on any Customer Number in the report to open the Contact record for a Customer, or on an Invoice or Receipt Number to open an individual Invoice or Receipt record. In the Overview version of the report, you can also click or tap on the age of an Invoice to activate the 'Transfer to Bad Debtors' Maintenance function for the Invoice in question.

You can have the Aged version of this report sent to a specified Mailbox or Conference automatically every day. Please refer to the Sales Ledger Due Report page for details.

Detailed
Where the Overview simply shows the outstanding balance of each Invoice, this option provides more detail, listing for each open Invoice any partial payments and Credit Notes.

Overview
The Overview shows each Customer's Number, Name and Telephone Number and, for each outstanding Invoice, the Invoice Number, the Invoice Date, the Payment Terms, the Due Date, the age (i.e. number of days overdue or until the Due Date), the Reminder Level and the outstanding balance.

The age figures that will be printed in the "Days" column in the report will depend on the Show Delay Days options in the Age Limits setting in the Sales Ledger. If you are using the Open and Overdue option, the number of days by which an Invoice is overdue will be printed in this column as a negative figure. If an Invoice is not yet due for payment, the number of days until the Due Date will be printed as a positive figure. However, if you are using the Overdue Only option in the Age Limits setting, the number of days by which an Invoice is overdue will be printed as a positive figure. If an Invoice is not yet due for payment, "0" will be printed.

Aged
Select this option to show in a single line per Customer the outstanding totals of all unpaid Invoices sorted into ageing periods. The distribution of the age groups is defined using the Age Limits setting in this module or the Accounting Periods setting in the Nominal Ledger.

Detailed Aged
This option is similar to the Aged option, but lists the unpaid Invoices issued to each Customer individually, showing the ageing period into which each falls. The telephone numbers of each Customer are also shown.

Balance
This choice simply prints the total outstanding balance payable by each Customer. For each Customer, a balance in your home Currency will first be shown, followed by separate balances for each Currency you have used with the Customer.

Rate Differences
Currency Invoices in the Sales Ledger carry with them an implicit rate gain or loss, to be realised at the time of payment. This option calculates the rate difference for unpaid Invoices at the current Exchange Rate.

For each Customer, the report shows an outstanding total in Currency, a "Current" figure (the outstanding total converted to Base Currency 1 using the current Exchange Rate), a "Booked" figure (the outstanding total converted to Base Currency 1 using the Exchange Rate in the Invoice(s)) and the difference between the Current and Booked figures. A Customer will only be included in the report if the difference figure is not zero.

If the Currency field above is empty, rate differences will be calculated for Invoices in all Currencies. Otherwise, rate differences will only be calculated for Invoices in the specified Currency.

Rate Diff. Detailed
This option is similar to the Rate Differences option, but lists the unpaid Invoices issued to each Customer individually, showing the exchange rate differences for each one.
Amounts
Use these options to determine what figures are to be shown in the report.
Base Currency 1
All figures in the report will be converted to your home Currency (i.e. Base Currency 1), using the relevant Exchange Rate for each Transaction Date.

Currency
Select this option if you want the report to show amounts in the Currencies used in Invoices and Receipts. Note: the Aged version of the report will always show figures in your home Currency.
On Account
Use these options to control how Prepayments and On Account Receipts will be included in the report.
Include On Account
The Overview and Detailed options will list the outstanding Invoices for each Customer, followed by a total Prepayment and On Account Receipt figure for the Customer. In the other versions of the report, Prepayments and On Account Receipts will be included in the figures.

Only On Account
The Overview and Detailed options will only display total Prepayment and On Account Receipt figures for each Customer (i.e. outstanding Invoices will not be listed). In the other versions of the report, the figures shown will only be calculated from Prepayments and On Account Receipts.

Skip On Account
The Overview and Detailed options will only list the outstanding Invoices for each Customer. No Prepayment and On Account Receipt figures will be shown. In the other versions of the report, Prepayments and On Account Receipts will not be included in the figures.

Show Prepayment No.
The Overview and Detailed versions of the report will include a total On Account Receipt and Prepayment figure for each Customer, if you use the Include On Account or Only On Account options above. Check this box if you would like the Prepayments to be listed individually as well. The Prepayment Number from flip D of the relevant Receipt row will be shown for each Prepayment. These Prepayment Numbers will have the Standard ERP Drill-down feature: click (Windows/Mac OS X) or tap (iOS/Android) a Prepayment Number to open a Prepayment History S/L report for the Prepayment.
Status

Card 2

Language
Paste Special    Languages setting, System module
If you would like to list Invoices with a particular Language, specify that Language here.

Main Partner
Paste Special    Customers in Contact register
If you want the report to list Invoices issued to Customers with a particular Main Partner (specified on the 'Terms' card of the Contact records for each Customer), specify that Main Partner here.

Amount from, to
These fields allow you to produce a report listing outstanding Invoices with TOTALS in a particular range. For example, if you only want Invoices with TOTALS between 1000.00 and 10000.00 to be included in the report, enter "1000.00" in the From field and "10000.00" in the To field.

Show Base Currency 2 Totals
By default, the total figures at the end of the report showing the overall outstanding balance, the total due (i.e. the amount that is outstanding where the Payment Terms have expired) and the total that is not yet due will all be displayed in your home Currency (Base Currency 1). Check this box if you would like these figures to be expressed in Base Currency 2 as well.

Choosing this option will have no effect in the two Rate Difference versions of the report.

Only Interest Invoices
Use this option if you only want Interest Invoices to be listed in the report.

Show Invoice Comment
Check this box if you would like Comments from the 'Identifiers' card of each Invoice record to be shown in the report.

Show Official Ser. No.
Use this option if you would like the Official Serial Number of each Invoice to be included in the report.

If you print the report using the Overview, Detailed Aged or Rate Diff. Detailed options, the Official Serial Number will be printed instead of the Invoice Number. If you print the report using the Detailed option, the Official Serial Number will be printed as well as the Invoice Number.

Show Debtor Accounts
Use this option if you would like a section to be added to the end of the report, listing the Debtor Accounts used in the Invoices in the main part of the report, together with balances (calculated from the Invoices shown in the report only).

Choosing this option will have no effect in the two Rate Difference versions of the report.

Show Instalments
Invoices will be payable in instalments if they have Payment Terms that are connected to records in the Instalments setting. Such an Invoice will be shown in the report as being due on its Due Date (which will be its Invoice Date plus any Net Days specified in the Payment Term). Check this box if you would like to see the instalments listed individually, with their own Due Dates and outstanding balances. If you click (Windows/Mac OS X) or tap (iOS/Android) on the age figure of an instalment in order to transfer the debt to the Bad Debtor Account, the whole outstanding debt for the Invoice will be transferred, not that for the individual instalment.

Aged based on Invoice Date
Use this option to control the ageing calculation used in the report (Overview, Aged and Detailed Aged options). Turn this option off if you want the ageing calculation to start from the Due Date of an Invoice (i.e. the date when the Payment Terms expire). Turn it on if you want the ageing calculation to start from the Invoice Date.

If you use this option, all Open Invoices (except those dated on or after the report date) will be included in the report if you choose the Overdue option on card 1. This option treats an Invoice as becoming due for payment on its Invoice Date.

Skip No Reminder
Select this option to exclude Invoices marked as No Reminder from the report.

Skip No Collection
Select this option to exclude Invoices marked as No Collection from the report.
