A statement is a summary of a customer's invoices and payments and is typically sent on a regular basis, such as monthly. Statements help your customers keep track of their account and how much they owe you.

On the Customer statements page (accessible from the Sales menu) you can review, print and email customer statements for one or more customers.

There are two statement types:

  • Invoice statements list all unpaid invoices as at a specified date.

  • Activity statements list all invoices and payments within a specified date range and include a running account balance.
