Payment disbursement batch is used to make multiple payments to outstanding bills. You should group all the payments with the same payment types (paid by check, paid by cash, paid by wire etc) into one batch. The batch feature allows you to choose which bills to pay and how much to pay. After selecting all the bills you want to pay, you can review the payment details before posting the batch.
Create a New Payment Batch
From the Bills menu, New Pmt Batch. Enter a reference number for the batch. Today's date for example. Choose the cash account the payment is being made from. Enter an exchange rate if you are paying bills in foreign currencies.
Use the Bills Due Date and Discounts Lost By Date to search for bills due before a certain date or bills with early payment discounts by a certain date.
Finally, choose the payment type and the payment date.
