Sage Tips - Recording Retentions in Sage 50 Accounts

If you work in the Construction industry you are probably already aware of retentions, this is how to record them in Sage 50 Accounts. Alternatively Sage Construct will automate both sales and subcontractor retentions for you.

Post an Invoice with Retention

First open up the customer module and select new invoice from within the links pane. You will now see the Batch Customer Invoices window.

Now enter the relevant details into the window as below:

A/C      Date                                        N/C        Details                                Net               T/c     VAT
ABC     Inv Date                                  4000      Sales Invoice Details          9000.00        T1     1575.00
ABC     Expiry Date of Retention        4000      Retention Details                1000.00        T1     175.00

When you wish to post the invoices press save.

The invoices are now posted and the Batch Customer Invoices window will clear.

You can now click close to return to the Customers window.

A batch customer invoice has now been posted for the work completed. It will appear as the value due and the retention value.

Posting a Customer Receipt

First you need to open the Bank module and select which bank will receive the money. You will see the selected bank is now highlighted.

Click Customer from the Bank Accounts toolbar.

You will now see the Customer Receipt window. Complete as follows.

A/C Box - enter the reference for the customer and press tab, you will see all the outstanding items for that client appear in the table.

Receipt Box - if you enter the correct figure in the receipt box, it will automatically be allocated to the invoice items.

Click save to post.

You have now recorded that your customer has paid. When you receive the Retention simply repeat the process against the appropriate entry.
