Export to bookkeeper's accounts program

Your book-keeper/accountant may be using an accounts program, such that your sales ledger information from LabManager forms part of the full company accounts.

In accounting terms LabManager is a Sales Order Processing system which contains a Sales Ledger. An accounts program will also contain a Purchase and Nominal Ledger. 


The CSV Exporter application will allow you to export data from LabManager as CSV files, which can be imported into many 
accounts programs. The CSV Exporter has templates available for many applications, and more templates are being developed continuously as requirements arise. Read more about this app here

However, as LabManager is very good at doing your invoicing (per job, or as a summary), statements, payment allocations and controlling your debtors, you may only need to provide the transaction totals to your bookkeeper/accountant for entry into your main accounts.


Usually, as a minimum, your bookkeeper/accountant will want a weekly or monthly report with your transaction figures. The following reports are suitable for this purpose:


SIMPLEST

Report menu > Accounting > Managers Financial Report
Report menu > Accounting > Invoices In Period
Report menu > Accounting > Payments

In addition, the following reports may be of interest to your bookkeeper at intervals:

Report menu > Sales > Sales by Customer
Report menu > Accounting > Aged Debtors


MORE DETAILED

If your bookkeeper/accountant requests more detail in addition to the above, you may email them with a Summary Invoice for each customer (for the period). Use the Batch Report Manager to produce the Summary Invoice for all customers. On Step 3 choose to SEND to 'Preview as One File'. From the Preview Window, choose the Email icon (the envelope) and email to whoever you wish.
