Additional information

  • We recommend that the step called Ledger Payments be placed before the step called Ledger Statements so that the current month's payments are included in the statements
  • Most users prefer to print the Owner Statements before processing Owner Payments. This means the statement will show an account balance before the final payment - usually the amount being paid
  • Most users then process the Owner Payment transactions before the Close Month step. This means that the final owner payments never show on a statement. They are implied as having been paid
  • Some accounting users opt to print statements, close the month, and pay owners before entering new month transactions. This method displays the opening balance from the previous month and records payment transactions at the start of the new month in the subsequent month's statement. However, it's important to note that year-end statements assume payments are made before month-end close to align with the respective months.
