You can memorise them on a daily, weekly, fortnightly, monthly, annual basis and more.   The sort of transactions that you can memorise are loan repayments; Hire Purchase repayments;...

Reckon Accounts in the Cloud

A significant number of our clients are now using the Hosted (Online) version of Reckon Accounts. I am using it myself for our own accounting. Some of the advantages of using the online version of the product are: 1.  You can access your Reckon Accounts file from any computer, any where, any time. 2.    Your file is very well protected. It is being backed up every hour on the Reckon servers and is backed up in multiple locations and in multiple countries. Compare that to your own current backup process. 3.   You will be using the Enterprise version of Reckon Accounts. This is currently the...

Finance Options

Note: This is not advice. Please look at it as a guide only and get specific advice from your own Tax Agent or Lawyer. Question: I am Cash Based for GST. I need to buy a new car (or piece of business equipment). What is the difference between a Lease a Hire Purchase or a Chattel Mortgage? And how do I treat them in my accounting software?   a)        CHATTEL MORTGAGE For a business that is cash based for GST a Chattel mortgage is a very good option to investigate, as you are able to claim the GST on the purchase of the car/equipment (for the business % of use) up front at the time you make...

Recurring Transactions

The General Clearing Account

What is the general clearing account used for and how is it used? The GENERAL CLEARING ACCOUNT is used for a multitude of things and is an extremely handy account to have in your Chart of Accounts. The GENERAL CLEARING ACCOUNT is set up as a BANK Type Account in the Chart. A Few examples of when we use the General Clearing Account are: Recording the payment of “PAYG Withholding” as part of the BAS (so that it also gets tracked through the Pay Liabilities Tracker AND can also be entered as part of the BAS as one total figure). Recording Contra Payments (ie, when you buy something from someone...

Uncleared Transactions

Once you reconcile an account ALL transactions should be ticked off and there should not be transactions sitting there unreconciled. If there is, then you need to go back into the Reconciliation and choose to reconcile to the same date as the "Last reconciled date", with the Closing Balance entered the same as the Opening Balance. Once the Reconciliation opens up you need to Tick the box "Hide Transactions after the Statements End Date" (at the top right of the reconciliation). This will leave you with all of the Uncleared transactions that shouldn't be there as the account has been...

Set up a Product or Service: Service

From the Product/Service information window, enter a name for your service. This can be simple ie. Labour Hire, Gardening Services or very detailed ie. Traffic Controller – M-F (8am-6pm). When choosing the complexity of the name you will use consider Enter an SKU if needed. Note: You will probably only need this if you are setting up an Item for a Point of Sale (POS) system. Otherwise leave it blank. Insert an Image if required. This is completely optional. Again, particularly useful when setting up a Point of Sale (POS) system. To insert a picture from your computer, click on the pencil...
