Entering unallocated employee payments

Accountants Enterprise only

An unallocated payment is money paid by the practice to an employee who does not yet have an invoice against which to match the payment. For example, when cash is deposited in advance of the services being billed.

Once the prepayment has been entered, it is posted to update the employee’s ledger. There is no matching at this stage because the invoice has not yet been received. When the invoice is received, entered and posted, the unallocated payment can then be matched.

  1. Select Bookkeeping > Employee Ledger from the main menu. The Employee Expense Payments window opens.
  2. Select Bookkeeping > Employee Ledger from the main menu. The Employee Expense Payments window opens.
