In the UK how do you post Direct Debit payments to GL when the payment method 'Direct debit' is not available to link to a deposit?
The UK Direct Debit (DD) payments don't need to be linked to a deposit like most other payments in v2.7. Use the following method to post the DD payments to GL:
Assuming you've processed your Direct Debit payments and committed the Revenue Batch to do so take a note of the batch number.
Click Revenue -> Post Revenue to GL -> click 'Add' to add a new process For the process use the following settings:
On the General tab Output format: Standard post format Deposits: None Non-deposit revenue: Selected revenue records Selection: click search then add an ad-hoc query for your desired payments using the Revenue record type and filtering using your Batch number from above Bank account adjustments: select desired option for adjustments Results: select desired options for results
On the Posting Details tab
Select whether you want a 'Detail', 'Summary' or 'Summary by application' Post Method for each GL Transaction Type. Also add references if required.
Next go to Analysis->Query and select your query/selection you created within the GL process and double-check it's pulling the correct records. If not try amending the filters using date etc. and save it once the correct payments are being pulled through.
Click Start Process and the Direct Debit Payments should post.
