Introduction to the Sales Ledger in Standard ERP

The Sales Ledger module in Standard ERP is where you should create and record the Invoices and Credit Notes that you issue to your Customers, and where you can record both the payments that you receive against those Invoices and deposits that you are paid to secure the future delivery of Items. Reports such as the Sales Ledger report, the Open Invoice Customer Statement and the Periodic Customer Statement will use this information to display the credit position of each Customer in real time, while the Receipts Forecast report will use it to help with payment scheduling and cashflow forecasting.

The Sales Ledger is fully integrated with the Nominal Ledger. Transactions generated from Invoices will debit the Debtor Account and credit the Sales and Output VAT Accounts, while Transactions generated from Receipts (recording the payments that you receive from your Customers) will credit the Debtor Account and debit the Bank or Cash Account. The Sales Ledger is also fully integrated with the Sales Orders module, permitting a seamless sales order process workflow in which Invoices can be created from and will remain connected to Sales Orders for goods delivered. You can also create Invoices from many other registers, including Contracts, Projects, Quotations and Service Orders.
