Accounts receivable

Good management of your receivables (who owes you money, also known as your debtors) is a vital part of running any business, and MoneyWorks makes this easy. Being able to generate professional looking invoices is just the start of the process—you want your customers to pay as soon as possible. With automatic reminders, easily searchable lists, special enquiry screens and credit hold facilities, MoneyWorks gives you the tools you need to better manage your receivables and improve your cash flow.

MoneyWorks Express also includes features that you would normally only find in higher-end systems with higher end pricing. Features like time-expiring (prompt payment) discounts, head office billing (where you invoice the branch, but get paid by the head office), subscription billing (send the same invoice to hundreds of customers), and customisable over-due letters which can be printed or emailed.

Note that, if you want to segment your general ledger with multiple accounts receivable control accounts, or to send invoices and receive payments in different currencies, you will need to consider MoneyWorks Gold.

Accounts payable

Careful management of your payables (the businesses that you owe money to, also known as your creditors) can improve both your cash flow and your credit rating. MoneyWorks has the tools to manage this process, and to take advantage of any prompt payment/settlement discounts offered by your suppliers.

MoneyWorks also makes the payment process easy, with the ability to pay your creditors individually or in bulk, either by cheque or electronic payment (for supported banks) with email notification.

Note that, if you receive and pay invoices in different currencies, you will need to consider MoneyWorks Gold.
