Beginning with Version 2020, Tabs3 Billing and Trust Accounting Software (TAS) supports integration with LawPay for electronic processing of payments, client funds deposits, and trust deposits. LawPay supports both credit and debit cards in Tabs3 Billing and TAS, as well as electronic fund transfers (eChecks) from checking or savings accounts in Tabs3 Billing.
Tabs3 Billing allows you to manage the client’s payment methods from either the LawPay tab of the Client file or from the Payment/Client Funds Entry windows. TAS allows you to manage your LawPay payment methods from the Trust Transaction Entry window. You can add or remove payment methods as well as update the email address for each payment method. When an email address is present, the client will automatically be emailed a receipt each time that payment method is used.
Once you have enabled LawPay in Tabs3 Billing, you can include a LawPay payment link in the statements you email to your clients. This allows clients to pay their statement with a credit card or eCheck without anyone at the firm handling sensitive payment information. Once a client has paid their bill via LawPay, you can import the payment into Tabs3 via the Import Online Payments program (Maintenance | Integration | Import Online Payments). See Knowledge Base Article R11767, “Using the Tabs3 Payment Link,” for more information regarding setting up payment links and importing payments. For more information on LawPay integration, see Knowledge Base Articles R11828, “LawPay Integration Frequently Asked Questions,” and R11826, “Configuring LawPay Integration with Tabs3 Software.”
The Check Register by Check Number Report can be run to include checks, EFTs, and/or deposits for the desired date range.
To run the Check Register by Check Number Report
You will now have a report showing only deposits for the date range selected.
If a receipt is not shown in the Select Receipts to Deposit window, the cause may be due to the selection you are making in the window, or something in the journal entry for the receipt.
In the Select Receipts to Deposit window, verify that you are selecting the correct option for your receipt type:
Journal entries must meet certain criteria in order to be available for selection in the Select Receipts to Deposit window. Verify that the following criteria are met for the journal entry:
If any of these criteria are not met, the journal entry will be prevented from being added to a deposit slip.
For each trust account in TAS, you must enter a transaction to remove funds from the old bank, and then enter a transaction to add funds to the new bank.
If you will be writing a check from the old bank to the new bank, you can write a single manual check that encompasses all trust accounts, and then enter the check information into TAS for each trust account showing that the funds were removed from the old bank account. Once this has been completed, you can then enter a deposit for each trust account using the new bank account.
Alternatively, if you are not writing a check from one bank to the other, you can enter EFTs instead. When entering EFTs to remove funds from the old bank, enter a positive EFT amount. When entering EFTs to add funds into the new bank account, enter a deposit.
