Multiple Branches

Software: MoneyWorks accounting software

You may have customers that have multiple branches which require you to invoice and deliver goods to the outlets but send a consolidated statement to the HQ at the month-end.

First, have the debtor setup with same company name but a different delivery to address in MoneyWorks accounting system. Then, add a dot (.) after the customer name code to group the debtors, and a branch code after the dot to differentiate the branches. Each branch is a debtor, which allow the user to create invoices and print a consolidated statement at the end of the month.

Assuming debtor ABC Co (name code ABC_CO) has two branches. To create them in MoneyWorks, first, you amend the debtor code to ‘ABC_CO.’; and two more debtors as ‘ABC_CO.br1’ and ‘ABC_CO.br2’. Any debtor with name code started with ‘ABC_CO.’ will group as one company when printing statement.

You can improve the presentation of the Accounts Receivable Ageing report by adding the HQ Name code (ABC_CO.) into a category or custom field and subtotal by this field when printing report. Highlight the main (ABC_CO.) to print a consolidated statement or print a branch statement by highlighting the branches code.
