Use this batch job to issue one or more finance charge memos at a time. You can select the finance charge memos to be issued by filling in the No. field.
When a finance charge memo is issued, the program posts entries according to your specifications in the Finance Charge Terms table. This table determines whether interest and/or additional fees are posted to the customer's account and the general ledger. The Customer Posting Group table determines which accounts are posted to.
For each customer ledger entry on the finance charge memo, an entry is created in the Reminder/Fin. Charge Entry table.
If the Post Interest field and/or the Post Additional Fee field in the Finance Charge Terms table contains a check mark, the following entries are also made:
one entry in the Cust. Ledger Entry table
one "receivables" entry in the relevant G/L account
one "interest" and/or one "additional fee" entry in the relevant G/L account
In addition, issuing the reminder may result in VAT entries.
When issuing is completed, you will be able to see the issued finance charge memo in the Issued Finance Charge Memo window.
You can define which finance charge memos are included in the batch job by setting filters. You can set additional fields on the tab by clicking the Field field and then clicking the AssistButton that appears to the right. You can also determine how the batch job is processed by filling in the fields on the Options tab. Fill in the fields as follows:
No.: Enter the numbers of the finance charge memos to be issued. If the field is not filled in, all finance charge memos will be issued. Click the AssistButton to the right of the field to see the existing finance charge memo numbers.
Click the up-arrow at the lower left-hand corner of the window to see the result of the filters you have defined for the table.
Print: Place a check mark in the check box if you want the program to print the finance charge memos when they are issued.
Replace Posting Date: Place a check mark in the check box if you want to replace the finance charge memos' posting date with the date entered in the field below.
Posting Date: Enter the posting date. If you place a check mark in the check box above, the program will use this date on all finance charge memos when you post. If you do not place a check mark in the check box, this date will be used only on those finance charge memos where there is no posting date already specified.
