Recurring Payment And Recurring Receipt


We have introduced a new function which will allow you to set up recurring payments and recurring receipts similar to recurring invoices. The payments will have the “Pay Supplier” option to generate the SEPA payment files which may be submitted to your bank for processing. This also includes non-supplier payments where the payee has been set up with bank details. 

Introduction of Payee under Contacts

We have added a new contact type “Payee” under the Contacts tab.  Payees can have their bank details recorded, and may be used for quick access to payees used in non-supplier payments.

To access “Payee” select Contacts; a new option “Payees” will appear in the drop down.


                                                            New option introduced as “Payees” under Contacts

By selecting the “Payees” option the following screen will appear.


                                                                                          New screen for Payee


Select the type as “Payee” from the drop down menu. This is a mandatory field and you must select “Payee” for non-supplier payment.

Payee Name

Enter the name of the “Payee”.


Enter the address of the “Payee”


Enter the Town, County, and Post Code in the respective column.


Select the “Country” from the drop down menu.

Default VAT Code

Enter the default VAT Code by using the drop down. For e.g. you can select A 23.00% (Standard) as default VAT code if the country is Ireland.


 Enter the Bank Identifier Code (BIC) of the payee's bank.


The International Bank Account Number (IBAN) relates to the Payee's bank account, and is used in conjunction with the BIC to enable payments to be made from SEPA Bank Files.
