Introducing Voucher Invoices

Expense accounting with Newton by Agency Systems has been revamped this year by introducing voucher invoices – a simple and user-friendly way to track and pay a variety of agency bills and expenditures.


Creating a Voucher

A voucher is a non-policy related invoice with expense distributions, typically recorded to the “vendor payable” general ledger account. Entering the distributions for a vendor payable invoice has never been easier. The universal drop-down lists used to select general ledger accounts do not require any knowledge of existing general ledger codes. Simply enter the name of the account, and the drop-down list will automatically filter and display the items with partial or complete matches.

Paying a Voucher

Voucher invoices are created when an expense is received, and can be paid immediately or at a later date.

Voucher-pay

Since the payment is now separated from the expense entry, multiple voucher invoices can be paid with a single EFT or printable check. This enables an unlimited number of expense distributions and voucher invoice descriptions to be included with a single entry.

Using a Voucher Template

Voucher templates simplify recurring expense entries, and are now more efficient and easier to update on-the-fly. After a template has been created, just enter a vendor code and select the saved voucher template from the next drop-down list.

After selecting the template, all of the stored general ledger distributions and amounts will display. To update a value, simply change the dollar amount – no need to re-enter any of the values for that expense.
