Create Recurring Payable Batch Form

You use the Create Recurring Payable Batch form to create a batch of recurring-payable invoices for selected vendors and recurring payables.

Depending on your choice for the Method option, Accounts Payable creates a new batch or adds the new transactions to an existing batch.  The batch appears in the Batch List form as a Recurring batch, using the next available invoice batch number.

If you want to edit a recurring-payable batch, you use the Invoice Entry form.

You post the generated invoices, then process the payments and print checks as you would for any other type of invoice.

If the terms specified for a recurring payable include a multiple payment schedule, Accounts Payable calculates the schedule when it processes the payable.

Accounts Payable warns you when it creates the last invoice before a recurring payable expires. You can update the recurring payable if you want to continue using it.

Accounts Payable does not create an invoice for a recurring payable if:

  • It encounters an error while processing a recurring payables batch (for example, if the terms code used in a recurring payable record is invalid) . The program displays an error message when it finishes processing the batch.
  • Posting the invoice would cause the amount invoiced to date to exceed the maximum amount for the recurring-payable.
  • The invoice would exceed the maximum number of invoices permitted for the recurring-payable.
  • The invoice date is after the expiration date specified for the recurring-payable.
  • The vendor is inactive or on hold.
  • The recurring payable is inactive.

If the program does not create an invoice for a recurring payable, it does not update the Last Posted Invoice fields in the recurring payable record.

Note: When you delete a vendor record, Accounts Payable automatically deletes all recurring payables for the vendor.
