Cash Receipts

AccuFund Anywhere Online

Easy Streamline Recording of Receipts

Cash Receipts makes it easy for nonprofits and governments to manage inflows from all sources. As a part of our Core system, the Cash Receipts component is the center point for receipts from all modules within the AccuFund Accounting Suite.

For nonprofits, this includes Accounts Receivable and Client Invoicing.

For governments, it integrates with Utility Billing, Property Tax, Court Fines, Permits and Inspections, and Fees, Taxes and Licenses.

From Cash Receipts you can:

  • Handle all your cash, check, and credit card receipts, including convenience fees.
  • View any customer’s outstanding items.
  • Apply receipts unrelated to specific billing or receivable to a General Ledger account

Cash Receipts includes convenient customer receipt forms, deposit slips, deposit tickets, and deposit logs, as well as reporting on receipt distribution, customer credit, credit aging, and credit distribution.

Improve Your Workflow

Cash Receipts can be used effectively by people who receive payments through the mail (back office users) or behind a counter (front office users).

As soon as a payment by cash, check, or credit card is received, the amount can be entered and applied to various receivables.

To ensure accuracy, Cash Receipts offers a double-check feature that applies receipts to outstanding invoices. Invoices are listed on the receipt screen, so users can see which specific invoices will be credited.

If a customer prepays, overpays, or double pays an invoice, users can set up an accounts receivable credit on the cash receipt and distinguish it from other cash credits.

When creating a receipt for miscellaneous cash, Cash Receipts lets users identify the receiving bank and account. In the receipt’s description field, users can indicate what the cash is for and who paid it.
