Using TurboCASH


All transactions are entered into batches and documents and when these batches and documents are updated or posted to the Ledger, transactions are generated. All transactions are stored in TurboCASH for up to two years. The format in which transactions are stored in TurboCASH is the same as the way they are entered in the batch entry screens. The quality of your reports depends on the care you have taken to enter your data or transactions correctly and to optimise the various fields in the batch entry screens.

You may enter thousands of transactions of a different nature. TurboCASH have provided you with the powerful facility to retrieve reports on each of these Batch Types (Journal Types). You may generate batch type reports for specific periods or by batch numbers or batch names. You would then be able to view and analyse these transactions for each of the specific Batches Types or Journal Types in which they were entered into the system.

Transactions Batch Type
Sales Sales Journal
Purchases Purchases Journal
Payments Payments Journal
Receipts Receipts Journal
General adjustments, correction of errors, Depreciation, Payroll transactions, etc. General Journal
Petty Cash Petty Cash Payments Journal

You may also create additional batch types to enter and update or post specific transactions to the Ledger. These additional Batch Types would then also be reflected in the Batch Type Report.
