Sounds great - as I don’t use Supplier/Purchase TABS I was unware of the clone feature.
The only question now: how is the future dated payments displayed on the AP Summary Report.
I am assuming that the Total Column will show the total value as the invoices have the same issue date and that the “Current” column (if that’s it’s title) would display either
a) the value of the earliest payment only - payments due between 0 and 30 days, or
b) the total of all payments - payments due between any future date and 30 days.
If a) then the line item and the report totals would not cross balance
If b) then the cash flow management benefits are lost compared to entering future dated sub-invoices
I am limit here as I don’t know how the entering of “different due dates” functions though out Manager’s reporting but perhaps the solution is to modify the report - as it appears that the existing system can handle the variable input requirements - by adding a column called “deferred payments” - this would total any payments due less then 0 days (i.e. dates greater then the reports requested/specified date)
It looks as though a solution could be achieved, it just depends on Manager’s priorities.
