Cash Account

Hi Ellis
Your question is about the cash account.
Sorry for the previous email. I miss-understood.

To try to answer your question properly. do you mean a cash Account in the chart of account. Like this.

chart of account cash account

and here is an entry that is affecting the cash account.

Sales journal cash payment


Ok, if this is what is happening? A transaction bas been posted to cash Account.

Credit Sales and Debit Cash Account.

Question is: did the money received from the customer be deposited into the actual company bank account? if it did.

Than the entry you need to make is:

Credit Cash Account and Debit Bank Account.

if the cash received by the customer did not end up as a deposit into the bank account. than you need to find out what happened to it.

Maybe the cash was used to purchase shop supplies or office supplies. you need to investigate what happened to the cash and make appropriate entry.

Credit Cash Account and Debit supplies or office or…. another expense account.

Hope this helped

Print Sales Invoices after advancing next fiscal year

To print sales invoices after advancing to next business fiscal year.

Go to Setup – Settings – Company – Information.

Looks like this.







Make sure the dates are right.

If this is the first year of business you may not have these dates.

But it might be an indication as to why the invoices for previous year will not print.

Depending on the version of Sage 50 you have, there are some things you can not do in the lower version.

For example:

lets say the company fiscal year is Jan1, 2016 to December 31, 2016.

You can print invoice copies or reports or make adjusting entries for 2015 ( Jan – Dec)

but not 2014 ( Jan to Dec).

Another way to print previous year sales invoices, go to Reports, Financials, General Ledger and you show be at this screen.

Trans by account report previous year







make sure the drop down menu is accessed so you can pick the year you need.

Hope these two tips helped.

If you have older versions of Sage 50 I highly recommend you updating to the newer version.

drop me a note if you are stuck or just want to give me your feed back.
