A comprehensive module, Accounts Receivable also integrates with General Ledger, Sales Order, Inventory Management, Job Cost, Bank Reconciliation, e-Business Manager, and Custom Office. And, of course, the Sage award-winning customer and technical support teams back you 100 percent.


Divisional Accounting
Divisional accounting allows you to assign a separate accounts receivable general ledger account to the receivables for each division. All reports can provide divisional subtotals.

Cash Expectation Report
Forecast future cash receipts using three user-defined aging categories and forecast requirements based upon the average-days-to-pay information for individual customers.

Advanced Sales Tax
Canadian GST/PST, tax schedules for multiple jurisdictions, and tax-on-tax calculations are all part of this feature.

Balance-Forward or Open-Item Customers
Process all accounts receivable on a balance-forward or open-item basis and assign the open-item or balance-forward method to individual customers.

International Address Capability
Customer masterfiles include three address lines to handle international numbers: country code, international postal codes, and an expanded telephone number field.

Credit Card Processing for Cash Receipts
Posting of credit card payments can be done with or without the Credit Card Processing module. When the module is used, functionality is further enhanced through automated authorizations and integration with credit card settlement reports.

Customer Delete/Renumber/Merge
Automatically delete, renumber, or merge customer numbers without having to renumber or merge customer information manually.

Invoice Entry
Automatically calculates due dates, discount due dates, discount amounts, and commission amounts for invoice entries. Use sales codes to obtain price and cost-of-goods-sold information. Enter unlimited sales codes, miscellaneous charges, and comment lines for each invoice in an easy-to-use grid-based entry window.

Repetitive Invoice Processing
Automatically process repetitive billing, such as membership fees, maintenance contracts, and rent.

Invoice History Printing
Prints history invoices for customer numbers, invoice numbers, and invoice dates. Reprint Accounts Receivable, Job Cost, and Sales Order invoices separately or all at once using the same form code or print only unpaid invoices for open-item customers. Reprint individual invoices from the drill-down screen in invoice history.

Cash Receipts Processing
Automatically applies cash receipts against the oldest invoices or against specific invoices. It allows you to post miscellaneous cash receipts directly against General Ledger accounts and process any prepayments against invoices not yet recorded.

Statement Printing
Print statements for a billing cycle, for example monthly or quarterly, on standard or custom forms for all customers or for a specific group of customers. You can also print statements based upon a minimum balance. Statements can be faxed directly from within Sage 100 ERP either individually or in batches.

Customer Masterfile Audit
This feature provides an audit trail of changes made to the Accounts Receivable customer masterfile. Use the Customer Masterfile Audit Report to review any changes, deletions, or additions to the customer masterfile.

Accurately and simply apply checks, cash, or credit card payments. Assign memos to specific customers and have them automatically display from related data entry points throughout the system including sales order entry and cash receipts. View attachments associated with the memo in addition to establishing expiration dates.
