We just broke 192 registered members on this group, I'm posting the latest updates and technical tips regarding the North American version of Sage 100. Occasionally I'll host a Facebook Live on a topic that I think is of high interest to users.


This group is only for currently active Sage partners, ISVS, and Sage employees. We just broke 81 members.  This is more of an industry news sharing group that allows us to share items that wouldn't be of interest to most end-users.

Stay Safe!

Credit Card transactions do not show up in Bank Reconciliation

Yes, it's true. If you use credit cards the financial information doesn't flow into bank reconciliation automatically.

What you'll need to do is create a separate miscellaneous cash receipt into that bank account once you've seen the credit card has settled with your merchant.

Here are the high-level steps
  1. Set up a credit card payment type - assign a "credit card clearing" GL as the asset.
  2. Process the credit card ( debits your "credit card clearing" )
  3. Upon seeing the funds deposited,  create another cash receipt, and instead of paying an invoice use the GL "credit card clearing" which debits cash ( and makes a  bank reconciliation entry and also credits "credit card clearing".

Sage has more detailed instructions here.

Why does Sage work this way? 

I believe it's because you can't tell in advance which of your daily credit card receipts will clear and be deposited together as one amount. Sage allows you to use a holding account and verify the receipts are deposited in the total amount you see arriving in your bank.

I've dealt with this either manually ( as above ) or for large numbers of deposits I've created an export and visual integrator import which can be done periodically to record the credit card receipts ).
