Summary: A new Fast Allocation type has been added to the transaction allocation page – the Debtor Split Receipt. This allows an administrator to split a single bank account transaction across multiple debtors accounts. The new fast allocation type also offers support for foreign currency accounts. Allocation amounts may be entered in either the base currency or the bank account foreign currency.
The Bank Admin module assists financial administrators in managing bank account transaction allocations. It’s primary function is to automate bank account transaction allocations.
Bank statements are manually uploaded into SOLID via an Excel file – some banks may also support automated bank statement imports. The opening balance of a loaded bank statement is compared to the current bank account balance (previous statement’s closing balance) to ensure financial integrity. Statements that are successfully loaded become eligible for allocation. SOLID supports customisable transaction allocation rules for automating the transaction allocation process. Unidentified transactions are left for manual allocation by the financial administrator.
Fast Allocation types are payment types that are pre-populated by the system when allocating a statement transaction.
