Open Invoices Report

The Open Invoices report provides a report of all invoices that remain unpaid. There is also the ability to only produce the report for overdue invoices, that is, invoices you have sent to customers where the due date of the invoice has been passed.

The open invoices download files can be used as the basis for a file to submit via your bank or BACS to claim payment direct from customers if you have the appropriate direct debit arrangements in place. You are responsible for ensuring the file is in a format appropriate to the needs of your bank or BACS service provider.

As At Date

Enter or select a date for which you want to run the report. This will normally be run as a 'current date' report, but it can also report on the state of invoices at a point in history.

Enter the dates manually (e.g 19/12/2018) or click on the calendar icon to select date from calendar.

When entering dates manually, a date guessing routine speeds up the input by taking the user input and assuming the missing month and or year based on the current date as the user leaves the field i.e. the date today is 30th October 2018

Overdue Invoices

Selects a report for only those invoices issued to customers that have become overdue against the agreed trading terms.

Select List

Click on the green … symbol to select one or more items for the report. If 'All' (the default) is selected then the report is generated containing all appropriate items.

Output Format

Select from PDF, XLS and CSV. Note a CSV format is required for BACS file generation.

Payment File Format

Payment files can be generated for employee, supplier and customer payments.

Select the most suitable format to use as a starting point for your electronic payment file. Please contact support@libertyaccounts.com if you need a different format for a specific online payment system operated by a major UK bank.

The BACS style files have dates and amounts formatted in the BACS style, but still need to be processed by your BACS software into proper BACS files.
