The processing of cash statements
Two delivery methods
It is possible to process cash transactions in Basecone. There are two ways to process the receipts. The second method works the most efficient:
👉 Method 1
You can deliver the receipts separately to Basecone > tag each receipt as CASH > each receipt will then be processed under the cash transaction > The begin and end balance will then be updated.
👉 Method 2
You can create a cash statement > add a follow-up page with a scan of all receipts > tag the document as CASH > the cash statement is processed in a multi-line booking (according to the number of lines on the cash statement ). Instead of adding a follow-up page, it is also possible to deliver the receipts separately to Basecone and then merge them together in Basecone.
Basecone automatically calculates the opening balance and closing balance of a cash statement and processes the mutations on each line. Please note that the begin balance. This only works correctly if the cash entries are processed in the date of order. In each line you indicate whether the amount is a credit or an debit.
If you choose the method 2, you will see the cash receipts on the left side of the screen, you can then easily fill in the cash entries on the right side and process it to Twinfield.
After you have processed the cash entries, your accounting system will create a link where you can retrieve the receipts.
From Basecone you can indicate which VAT for a cash mutation, unfortunately it is not possible to book it directly to a supplier (creditor) or customer (debtor).
It is also possible to book in multiple journals, depending the availability on your accounting system.
📌 Only users with the role of Accountant and SME Accountant can access the booking screen.
The processing of journal entries
It is possible to create a journal in Basecone and process it to your accounting system. Deliver the document(s) to the web application and tag them as JNL.

A journal entry always consists of a debit line and credit line; the entry must be in balance with a variance of zero.
