Payment is the transfer of money or goods and services in exchange for a product or service. A payment can be made in the form of cash, check, credit card and debit card.
Payments can be done against invoices that are generated from sales invoice or purchase invoice and Customer/Supplier BP invoice from the AP-AR accounting module. Payments transactions are created bank-wise as per the selected supplier/vendor. Payments are also done against multiple invoices and users can create the remittance entry against multiple payments. The purpose of Remittance entry is to provide the payment transactions to a particular bank in proper format with cash settlement, bill exchange issues, collections, check payments, discounts, etc.
As payment is created we can print the cheque for that specific payment .To print checks, the CHQMG – Check management activity code must be active and the following parameters must be set to Yes:
