Generating a cheque payment run for a supplier

Last updated:


    A payment term with specified From and To dates can be used to generate a cheque payment run for multiple supplier invoices. A range of filters can also be applied to facilitate the payment process including: company, office, partner or department.


    Ensure that the Payment Type on the Defaults tab of the supplier window is set to Cheque. Otherwise no cheque transactions will be available for payment.

    Cheques print directly to your default printer, and remittance advices produce a Word document that you can print. If you have a combined remittance advice and cheque, you have the choice of selecting either cheque letters or remittance letters if you want a Word document created. You do not need to choose both, unless you have cheques that are separate from the remittance advice.
    All selected suppliers must have a bank address attached if a cheque payment run is to be used.
