Useful info

Posting upcoming standing order and direct debit transactions

You must process your standing order and direct debit records regularly in order to keep your system up-to-date. Processing your direct debits and standing orders posts transactions to their associated bank accounts. During the processing phase, you specify a date and Sage 200cloud posts any transaction that fall due before or on the stated date.

You can run the process over the same date range multiple times to make sure that you account for any new standing order or direct debits records.

Reporting on direct debits and standing orders

  • Use the Standing Orders and Direct debits Enquiry to see a list of the SO and DD for each bank account with the payment details ( Bank Account List > Enquiries). You can also see this information in a workspace ( Cash Book > Cash book Enquiries).
  • Use the Direct debits and Standing Orders Due report to find the outstanding value of SO and DD. Useful for working out your committed costs.
  • Use the Direct debits and standing orders report for full printed details of SO and DDs.
