Keeping the Financial Accounts Records is one of the most important aspects of your business.

In the Financial Accounts Module you create new and update existing financial transactions. All received payments for invoices, all issued payments for purchase orders, payroll payments and taxes, business activity statement, in fact all payments are calculated and reports created and displayed in a Specified Period in this module.

The bank accounts are serving as repositories of totals of various financial transactions. Each and every financial transaction made in ShopMate is associated with a Bank account. For example, when an invoice or an order is closed by the user, it is posted to the ShopMate financial section and payments can be made.

When a payment is made against an invoice or order, the invoice or order is broken down to several system Ledgers, Sub ledgers and Collections. When an entry is made into a General Ledger, Sub ledger or Collection, the totals are associated with the system bank account My Bank or your own Bank Account. Only My Bank is used for invoices and orders automatically. This module reports on all of these.

These are the descriptions of all financial transactions that have to be put into the ShopMate financial system in order to calculate correct Income and Expenses for currently selected Branch on current workstation.
