Improvements Introduced

Enhancement in the previous rounding method

In an effort to produce a more accurate and consistent figures, the rounding methods available in AutoCount Accounting has been updated. The update has upgraded the Whole Document Rounding Method to version 3 and the Line by Line Rounding Method to version 2. The reason for this enhancement is due to the fact that there is some inaccuracy and inconsistency in figures generated for inclusive tax documents.

For example:
The following image is shows the inconsistency found between the document and the transaction detail screen when comparing the values generated by the Whole Document Rounding version 2.

There is a difference of 1 cent in the figures generated in the document when compared to the figures in the transaction details

In the following image, the previous inconsistency is no longer observed when using the Whole Document Rounding version 3. With the new update, both the figure in the document and the transaction detail screen is now consistent and is no longer inaccurate.

The difference is no longer observable after using the Whole Document Rounding Method version 3

Addition of Inclusive field in Cash Book and Journal Entry detail

A new field is added into both the Cash Book Detail and Journal Entry Detail entry. This field, Inclusive Tax, is added to allow users the capability to simultaneously enter multiple bills of exclusive and inclusive tax type together in one Cash Book or Journal Entry document. To access this field in the respective document entry, the user must drag out the Inclusive Tax column via the Column Chooser menu (accessible by doing a right click on the column header inside the document entry window).

This field is by default controlled by the Master document Inclusive Tax option. As such, if the user changes the master Inclusive Tax option, all detail Inclusive Tax will follow the changes done to the master option. This is also observable when a new detail is added as the new detail will also follow the master inclusive tax option when created. It must be noted that while the master inclusive tax option controls the detail options, the calculation is still based by the detail as if the user changes the detail inclusive tax to be different from that of the master option, the calculation will be change to reflect that change.

30 Days Advanced Payment Warning

A new feature has been added into this version of AutoCount Accounting. This feature, 30 Days Advanced Payment Warning, will cause a warning to be prompt when users try to save an A/R Receive Payment document that is used to knock-off an Invoice that has its document date or knock-off date greater than 30 days of the A/R Receive Payment document date.
