If you’re the company owner, you can transfer your company to someone else. You may need to do this if you’re leaving your organization, or if your client wants to take over the company. The new company owner will become responsible for the monthly subscription payments once they've accepted the transfer request.
Recurring Credit Card Payments
Netcash is a secure online payment service that can be integrated to various applications to receive payments. Sage Accounting currently makes use of this platform for single payments but needs to extend this to also allow for recurring credit card payments. The functionality will allow customers to do monthly/annual subscription payments without any manual intervention needed from them, while Sage Accounting will process payments on their behalf before subscription expiry.
Bundled Items are associated with particular items that are regularly duplicated on a Customer Invoice. This lets you specify one code on an invoice, and the system loads multiple item lines. Item Bundle Codes speed up invoicing, as you are able to create multiple invoice lines by entering one code only.
Recurring Journal Entries are associated with repetitive account balance adjustments. They are typically done to record items like accruals, depreciation, amortization, and allocations. You need to define the total amount and schedule for allocating and posting Journals. The schedule used provides logic to determine the execution date at which Journal Entries needs to be repeated.
Sales Orders & Reserve Stock
A Sales Order is raised when an initial Quote is approved, and the transaction is underway. The Sales Order specifies the details about products ordered by a specific customer along with the price, quantity and terms and conditions. You can opt to reserve the items contained in a Sales Order to avoid selling this stock to a different Customer.
