Do you have multiple AP checks and/or GL journal entries that need to be entered each month? Use recurring entries instead of manually entering them every time!
Accounts Payable Software (AP)
Recurring entries can be set up in AP and then added (posted) to the invoice file in a monthly batch. Rent, leases, parking, and mortgage payments are examples of recurring entries.
To add a recurring entry in AP
Once recurring entries have been added to AP, they can quickly be posted using Post Recurring Entries. All recurring entries are posted to the invoice file unless the recurring entry is on “hold”. The word “AUTO” (automatic) is posted to the Voucher field for each invoice created from a recurring entry.
