Get started

Start by linking your bank accounts to AccountRight. You'll then receive bank feeds that will save you from having to enter transactions yourself, and will make it easier for you to reconcile your accounts with your bank statements.

You can also use AccountRight to pay your suppliers and employees electronically. By setting up electronic payments, you can make quick and easy payments by preparing an electronic payment file for your bank to process.

Using bank feeds

Save yourself the headache of manually cross checking what's in AccountRight with your bank statements by letting bank feeds work for you Your company file will be updated regularly with any transactions processed by your bank, and if you've already recorded them, you can match the transactions. Before your bank feed is set up, you can import a downloaded bank statement.

Do you process lots of transactions each day? Bank feeds will really speed up data entry. You can even set up rules to automatically create matching transactions in AccountRight, or to help match payments to invoices and bills.

Approved a match by mistake? Simply undo the approval and the match is reversed.

Recording non-invoiced payments

Have you paid or received money that’s not related to an invoice or bill you’ve entered?

Use Spend Money to record the payments you make for non-invoiced business expenses, such as petrol, office stationery and phone bills.

Use Receive Money to record non-invoiced amounts you receive, such as interest payments or capital injections.

Banking

Even if the unbanked cash, cheques and credit card payments have been piling up, you can accurately track what hasn't been deposited by allocating transactions to the Undeposited Funds account. This account will temporarily hold the money until you're ready to prepare a bank deposit.

Want to pay some bills electronically? You can use your AccountRight software to pay your suppliers and employees electronically. It's as easy as setting up electronic payments and recording electronic payment files of your payee's bank details.

If you have multiple bank accounts, including bank and credit card accounts, it's easy to transfer money between the accounts. For example, if you have a petty cash account, you can transfer funds to it to top up the balance of your petty cash float.

Reconciling

Even if you use bank feeds to bring your bank account and credit card information into AccountRight, you still need to reconcile your accounts. This check ensures that the bank account balances in your company file match your bank’s records.

But if your accounts don't reconcile, there are some basic things you can do to pinpoint the problem .
