How you do your accounting (cash-based vs. accrual-based) factors in to which of these ClassJuggler financial reports will benefit you most in your bookkeeping and especially at tax time.

Here are some tips and details on these reports.

Deposit Summary report – [for CASH accounting]

This report can show you summarized information about payments received, organized by type, for any period of time. This is ideal for reconciling your checkbook and your merchant account activity and deposits.

Customer Payments – [for CASH accounting]

This report can show you all of the income you are receiving daily, weekly, monthly, or for any period of time you choose. The report will total payments in a variety of ways you choose to make reconciliation and deposit reporting simple.

Customer Applied Payments – [for CASH accounting]

This special report links payments received to the charges they were applied to, and can tell you exactly how much was earned by a particular charge account or by account category. It will only show applied amounts, so if a customer has a credit balance remaining, those amounts will not yet be factored in.

=EXAMPLE=

Let’s say you posted $1,000.00 in tuition and $200.00 in merchandise in the month you are running the report on, and you received $1,300.00 in payments for the same period; only the $1,200.00 applied to charges will be considered “earned,” leaving $100 unapplied.

Company Billing – [for ACCRUAL accounting]

the Company Billing report provides you with a list of charges your company has posted in a particular period of time. Since this is only showing what you have posted in charges, and not what has been paid or not paid by your customers, this is the go-to report for businesses that use accrual-based accounting for their bookkeeping.

=EXAMPLE=
Let’s say you posted $1,000.00 in tuition and $200.00 in merchandise during the month in which you are now running the Company Billing report; this report would return $1,200.00 total in products and services billed out to your customers.
