All Possible Questions & Answers regarding Receivable Receipts



How to unapply a receipt in a date different than the last open period?
When you unapply a receipt application, Oracle Receivables assigns a reversal GL date to each application that you reopen.
The reversal GL date defaults to the GL date of the original application if that period is still open. If the original application's GL date is in a closed period,
then the reversal GL date defaults to the current date. If the current date is not open, the default is the last date of the most recent open period.

If you want the reversal GL date to be a different date, you can change it as follows:

A. Navigate to Receipts>Receipts or Receipts>Batches.
B. Query the receipt you want to unapply.
C. Select the Applications button.
D. Uncheck the 'Apply' box to unapply the receipt application.
E. BEFORE YOU SAVE scroll to the right until you see the Reversal GL Date column.
F. Change this date to any date in an open period that is on or after the original GL date for the receipt.
G. Save your work. (After saving, the Reversal GL Date column becomes blank and it grayed out.)
How can I turn on / activate automatic numbering (auto numbering) for manual receipts?
Oracle Receivables does not automatically number manual receipts. However, document sequencing can be activated for manual receipts.
Document sequence numbers are unique numbers that can be assigned to receipts created in Receivables.
Document sequencing is an optional feature within Receivables that can be activated using a profile option.
This will generate the document number for a manual receipt, but the receipt number itself needs to be entered manually as the document sequence is not copied to the receipt number.

The exception to this is that if you are using automatic receipts, you must use document sequencing to sequence the automatically generated receipts.

Enhancement Request has been logged:
bug 217777 YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO AUTOMATICALLY NUMBER RECEIPTS AS WITH INVOICES
 
Why can you enter duplicate receipt numbers?
Duplicate receipt numbers is a functionality of Receivables. Many customers use their customer's check number as the receipt number
and for this reason, unique receipt numbers are not required.
Internally, a unique cash_receipt_id is assigned to each receipt as it is saved.

However, a receipt is considered as 'duplicated' - if the receipt number, receipt date, amount, and customer are identical to another receipt.
In this case you will receive an informative message to be confirmed when saving the receipt.
How do you write off small receipt balances?
In Oracle Receivables version 11i, you can write off unapplied cash receipt balances.
Receipt write-off functionality is provided to account for small overpayments that you do not intend to refund or maintain as unapplied amounts
or on account balances. With this function, you can choose to write off an unapplied cash receipt amount, within certain limits.
The write-off amount is credited to this account, such as a miscellaneous revenue account, and no longer reflects as an unapplied amount
on the receipt or on the customer's account.

You can write off individual unapplied receipt amounts during receipt
application or later, at any time using the Applications window. You can also
write off balances of multiple receipts with the 'Automatic Receipts Write-Off' Program.
(Navigation: Control > Write-off Receipts)

For Release 11.0.3 please see Note 199769.1  for a possible workaround.

How to setup Receipt Write Off can also be found in Note 203243.1 'Receipt Write-Off White Paper' and Note 184887.1.

See the Oracle Receivables User Guide Release Release 12, Chapter 4 - Receipts, 'Writing Off Receipts' for more information on this function.
How do you apply a receipt to the same transaction twice?
Oracle Receivables does not allow you to add a second line to a receipt for the
same invoice or debit memo via Receipts workbench. However, you can change the original line applied
to the invoice and increase the applied amount by the unapplied portion that you want to apply.

In Rel 11.5.10,multiple applications to the same invoice are now allowed for lockbox and quickcash receipts for the purpose of managing deductions, integrating Trade management with AR. This functionality was added in lockbox and Quickcash receipts for the deductions project.
How to access the LOV for Category and Reason Code on the Reverse Receipts window?
The Reverse Receipts window is a modal window. Oracle Applications 10.7NCA and R11.0 do not support icon toolbar access in modal windows.
You can use Ctrl-L to access the LOV for these fields in either of these versions.

In version 11i and 12, you can click on the LOV or use Ctrl L to access the LOV.
How to resolve '* This receipt is part of an unposted quick cash batch'?
This message appears on the unposted items report and prevent you from closing your period.
There are several reasons why this situation may occur, so first we need to
determine if the records are duplicates or if they need to be processed.

a) To process this Post Quick Cash Batch do the following
Navigate to Receipts > Batches
Query for Batch Type = Manual-Quick and the Batch Number listed on the Unposted Items Report
If Button 'Post QuickCash' is enabled, you can simple post this QuickCash batch to make the receipts available for GL Transfer.

b) If this is not the case, please log a service request with Oracle Support to investigate the issue further with the following information:
- Unposted Items Report
- Run the Receipt Batch Data Test from Note 311204.1
- Run the Receipt Data Test from Note 215969.1 for sample receipt(s) listed.

How do you apply payments to unrelated customers' invoices?
The correct way to apply a receipt to more than one customer is to either establish a relationship between the customers or make sure the
System Option - Allow Payment of Unrelated Transactions is checked.

Once one or both of the conditions above are met, follow these procedures:

A. Navigate to Receipts>Receipts or Receipts>Batches to enter a new receipt.
B. Enter the receipt number, amount, payment method, and customer number
of the first customer you want to apply the invoice too. You must enter a
customer number on this screen in order to make the Applications button available.
C. Select the Applications button.
D. Apply the receipt to the first customer's invoice.
E. If you want to apply monies to another, different customer's invoice, then
scroll to the right to find the Customer number field and change the number
to the other customer's number.

NOTE: If you will be processing many payments to related customers' invoices,
you can drag the Customer number column and drop it close to the Apply to
column, then save these changes in a folder.

F. Then scroll back to the Apply To field and select the LOV. You should now
see the other customer's open invoices and can make a selection from here.
G. Save your changes.

See Note 207487.1 -  Applying Receipt to Multiple Customers
 
What do you do with invoices that have credit balances?
Create a zero-dollar receipt and apply it to the invoice. This will give the zero-dollar receipt a positive balance that can be used to pay off other invoices.

Example: Invoice A - $100
Receipt B - $120

Apply Receipt B to Invoice A and Invoice A will have a -$20 balance.

To resolve, create Receipt C for $0. Apply Receipt C to Invoice A and Invoice
A will be closed. Then Receipt C will have a balance of $20 to be used for other invoices.
 
How are count and amount totals are populated in Receipt Batch Window with Reversals?
a. Actual Count and Amount will always show THE ACTUAL NUMBER AND AMOUNT of receipts entered, regardless of any reversals.
b. Returned Count and Amount show the number and amount of receipts reversed for the reasons "Non-sufficient funds", or "Stop Payment", i.e. the CUSTOMER has backed out of the payment.
c. Reversed Count and Amount show the number and amount of receipts reversed for the reason "Reverse Payment",
i.e. the ENTRY CLERK has made a mistake and wants to back out the payment.
d. Difference Count and Amount show the Control - (Actual - Reversed) totals.
I applied a receipt to the wrong customer account. How to correct this?
The receipt can be reversed and a new receipt entered for the correct customer
if the original receipt does not have any adjustments or chargebacks that have
been posted to the general ledger. Otherwise, a debit memo reversal will have to be created.

Or, if you have established a relationship between the customers or activated
the System Option - Allow Payment of Unrelated Transactions, then you can
unapply the application for the original customer and then apply an amount to
the other customer on the existing receipt.

See the Oracle Receivables User Guide Release 11i, Chapter 6 - Receipts, 'Reversing Receipts' for more information on this function.

See the Oracle Receivables User Guide Release 12, Chapter 4 - Receipts, 'Reversing Receipts' for more information on this function.

What is the difference between a reversed receipt and a debit memo reversal?
Receivables lets you reverse a receipt when a customer stops payment on a receipt or if a receipt is returned from the bank for insufficient funds.
You can also reverse a receipt if you want to re-enter and reapply it in Receivables (although you can just unapply and reapply, rather than reverse if you prefer).

You can reverse cash and miscellaneous receipts before or after they are posted to the General Ledger, and before or after they are applied. Receivables lets you create two types of reversals:

1. Standard Reversal
With a standard reversal, Receivables creates reversing journal
entries for your general ledger and reopens all of the debit and credit
items that were closed with the original receipt. You can create a standard
reversal for cash and miscellaneous receipts, as well as a transaction
related to a chargeback as long as there is no activity against the
chargeback and the chargeback has not been posted to the general ledger.
You also cannot process a standard reversal for any receipts that have
adjustments or chargebacks that have been posted to the general ledger.
For these exceptions, a debit memo reversal must be used.

To reverse a receipt:
A. Navigate to: Receipts>Receipts or Receipts>Batches
(enter batch information, then press the Receipts button).
B. Query the receipt to reverse.
C. Select the Reverse button.
D. Confirm or change the reversal date and reversal GL date. Oracle Receivables assigns the GL date and reversal GL date as the current date.
If the current date is not in an open period, then it assigns both dates as the  last date of the most recent open period. If the original GL date of the
receipt is later than the current date, then Receivables uses the original GL date. You can change the reversal GL date and GL date to any date in an
open period that is on or after the original GL date for the receipt.
E. Select the Category for this reversal.
Valid categories are: Reverse Payment, Non-Sufficient Funds, and
Stop Payment.
F. Select a Reason for this reversal.
G. Type a comment for the reversal, if desired.
H. Select the Reverse button.
I. Save your work.

2. Debit Memo Reversal
Debit memo reversals are typically used when a standard payment reversal
cannot be done. Debit memo reversals are required when you want to reverse
a receipt that was previously applied to a chargeback and the chargeback has
activity against it (such as another receipt, credit memo, or adjustment);
or when chargebacks or adjustments have been posted to the General Ledger
for the receipt you want to reverse.

Receivables does not update any of the activity associated with the original
receipt when you create a debit memo reversal. Instead it creates new
receivable debit items for the items closed by the original receipt.
You cannot process a debit memo reversal for a miscellaneous receipt.
To create a debit memo reversal:
A. Navigate to: Receipts>Receipts or Receipts>Batches (enter batch information,
then press the Receipts button).
B. Query the receipt to reverse.
C. Select the Reverse button.
D. Confirm or change the reversal date and reversal GL date. Oracle Receivables
assigns the GL date and reversal GL date as the current date. If the current
date is not in an open period, then it assigns both dates as the last date of
the most recent open period. If the original GL date of the receipt is later
than the current date, then Receivables uses the original GL date. You can
change the reversal GL date and GL date to any date in an open period that is
on or after the original GL date for the receipt.
E. Select the Category for this reversal.
Valid categories are: Reverse Payment, Non-Sufficient Funds, and
Stop Payment.
F. Select a Reason for this reversal.
G. Type a comment for the reversal, if desired.
H. Check the Debit Memo Reversal box.
I. Select a debit memo Transaction Type for this reversal.
J. Select the Reverse button.
K. Save your work.
How do you refund an overpaid (on account) receipt?
If your customer has overpaid and you want to cut a refund check for the
overage from on account, follow these procedures to clear the credit entry
from Accounts Receivable and process a refund through Accounts Payable.

Up to Rel 11i, you can perform the following.

A. You need to get the on account balance applied to an invoice. When the
receipt was applied, the following general ledger entries were made:

Cash On Account
-- ----
100 | | 100

B. Create a debit memo for the amount of the on account credit you want to
refund. Use a special Debit Memo transaction type that uses a clearing
account rather than Revenue. This will cause the following general ledger
entries to be made:

Receivable Clearing
--- -
100 | | 100

C. Apply the on account amount to the new debit memo. This will cause the
following general ledger entries to be made (leaves you with a Cash debit
for $100 and a Clearing account credit for $100):

Receivable On Account Cash
--- ---- -
| 100 100 | 100 | 100

D. In Oracle Accounts Payable, process a check crediting $100 to cash and
debiting the clearing account for $100 as below. This returns the cash and
all other accounts to zero.

Cash Clearing
 -
| 100 100 |

For Rel 12, you can perform the following:

Navigation: Receipts –> Receipts
Click Apply
In the Application window, set Apply To= Refund
Enter the Amount and other details.
You can refund only positive amount and amound less than the Receipt balance.
The button Refund Attributes will be enabled.
Click on this button to view and update your refund attributes.
Attribute values are defaulted from payee setup. You are allowed to overwrite the values.
Attribute name and meaning:
Customer Name : the customer receiving the refund. Default: customer name on the receipt.
Customer Number: the customer receiving the refund.
Refund Payment Method: refund method defined in Oracle Payments.
Customer Address: address to send the refund to.
Party Bank Account: bank account to deposit the refund to.
Delivery Channel: determine how banks will actually process a payment.
Pay Alone: when checkbox is selected, the refund will not be grouped with other refunds.
Remittance Message 1,2,3: text fields that a user can enter in information
Save it.

Once you Save, an Invoice will be generated in the Payables (AP).

Navigation: Receipts –> Receipts –> Applications Form : Refund Status button
When you click on Refund Status button, you will view the refund status in AP.

How do you refund a receipt for returned goods?
If your customer is requesting a refund for goods returned, follow these procedures to clear the credit entry from Accounts Receivable and process a refund through Accounts Payable. This is a manual process between AR and AP.

Up to Rel 11i, you can perform the following.

A. Create a credit memo in AR for the returned goods. Use the same Revenue and Receivable accounts referenced on the original invoice. This will cause the following general ledger entries to be made:

Receivable Revenue
--- -
| 100 100 |

B. Create a debit memo to offset the credit memo. Use a special Debit Memo
transaction type that uses a clearing account rather than Revenue. This
will cause the following general ledger entries to be made:

Receivable Clearing
--- -
100 | | 100

C. In Oracle Accounts Payable, process a check crediting $100 to cash and
debiting the clearing account for $100 as below. This returns the cash and
all other accounts to zero.

Receivable Clearing
--- -
| 100 100 |

For Rel 12, you can perform the following:

Create an On Account Credit Memo in AR.
click Action -> Applications

In the Application window, set Apply To= Refund
Enter the Amount and other details.
The button Refund Attributes will be enabled.
Click on this button to view and update your refund attributes.

Once you Save, an Invoice will be generated in the Payables (AP).
How do you delete receipts and applications from interim tables?
If a receipt came in through quickcash and was not purged from the interim table or it was missing from the batch and was entered manually, then you can
delete the receipts and their application as follows:

NOTE: If you are uncertain, please log a service request with Oracle Support for assistance.

SELECT receipt_number, cash_receipt_id, gl_date
FROM ar_interim_cash_receipts_all
WHERE receipt_number = &receipt_number;

Using the cash_receipt_id you can delete the data:

DELETE
FROM ar_interim_cash_receipts_all
WHERE cash_receipt_id = &id;

DELETE
FROM ar_interim_cash_rcpt_lines_all
WHERE cash_receipt_id = &id;

commit;
How can you prorate a receipt amount between tax and line items?
Application Rule Sets determine the logic Receivables uses to apply partial
payments to your customer's open debit items, as well as how discounts affect
the open balance for each type of associated charges. You can set up different
application rule sets for each transaction type. You can also assign a default
application rule set in the System Options.

Receivables provides the following seeded Application Rule Sets:
- Line first / tax after
- Line first / tax prorate
- Prorate all
- Over application rule

How do you clear a Note Receivable?
This is done in Oracle Cash Management for Note Receivables when the receipt
class is set with a clearance method of "By Matching". To clear automatically,
you need to setup your receipt class with a clearance method equal to "By Automatic Clearing".

How do you change a GL bank account for a Remittance Bank Account?
Once the setup is saved, the Remittance Bank Account window will not allow any changes to the GL accounts.  You will need to end-date the remittance bank account and end-date the payment method and define a new one with the correct GL accounts.

Why is the field "Includes Tax" at the adjustment receipt level not updateable?
Navigation: Receipts>Receipts>(Query receipt)>Applications button>Adjustments button

"Includes Tax" defaults in based on how you define your Adjustment Activity.
The Tax Code source you specify determines whether Receivables calculates and accounts for tax on adjustments.

How is the ar_payment_schedules.due_date field derived for receipts?
The value stored in ar_payment_schedules.due_date for a receipt is the maturity date in the receipts form under the remittance region.
It initially defaults to the receipt date. If the receipt date is changed to a later date, you are requested to enter a maturity date that falls after the receipt's date.
What is the maturity date for receipts in Oracle Receivables?
The maturity date in Oracle Receivables is a date that determines when funds  for an automatic receipt can be transferred from your customer's bank account
to your bank account. The maturity date cannot be before the receipt date.
What is the difference between on-account and unapplied receipts?
Unapplied Receipt:
This receipt is not applied to an existing invoice when it is entered. When
the customer does not want to apply the entered receipt they can leave it as
unapplied and apply the amount on a later date.

On-Account:
In case of an On-Account receipt, there is no identified invoice against the
receipt. Advance money is received from the customer and the invoice for the
same can be raised at a later date.

What does message "Do you want to cancel claims on this receipt?" mean?
Receivables integrates with Oracle Marketing Online Trade Management to
let you record, research, and resolve your customer's short payments and over
payments on their receipts. These payment discrepancies are called claims.

When there is a claim attached to a receipt then you will get this warning message.
If you want to cancel the claim you can say ' Yes". If you say 'No', then the claims will not be canceled.

If the claims cannot be canceled are not, or not complete, a message will tell you that the receipt may not be reversed until the claims have been completed.

How to process a payment for a credit memo in AR?
Payments need to be processed through Accounts Payable. See also question 'How do you refund a receipt for returned goods'?
How can you change the type of the receipt from cash to misc once it is entered and saved?
This is not possible as the field Type is not updatable once it is entered and saved. Cash type receipts store data in different tables than miscellaneous type receipts. That is why the 'Type' field on the Receipts form is protected as soon as the receipt is saved for the first time.
What date does AR use to calculate earned discounts?
When determining the discount percent for earned discounts, Receivables uses the invoice date, discount grace days, and the apply date of the receipt to determine the discount percent for this payment term.

How do you change the GL date default for receipts?
Oracle Receivables defaults the current date for the receipt GL date as long as the date is in an open period.
Otherwise, it will default to the last day of the most recent open period.
There are no profile options available to stop the receipt's GL date from defaulting.

However, the profile option 'AR: Application GL Date Default' will control the GL date default when you apply receipts.

See the Oracle Receivables User Guide Release 11i, Appendix B for more information on this profile option.

See the Oracle Receivables Implementaion Guide Release 12, Appendix B for more information on this profile option.

How do you reverse receipts in a different period?
When you reverse a receipt, Oracle Receivables assigns the GL date and reversal
GL date as the current date. If the current date is not in an open period, then it assigns both dates as the last date of the most recent open period.
If the original GL date of the receipt is later than the current date, then uses the original GL date.

You can change the reversal GL date and GL date to any date in an open period that is on or after the original GL date for the receipt.

NOTE: If you want a transaction to be posted in a prior period, the period
must be open. If the period is already closed and you do not want to open it,
you will not be able to do this. Please be aware that reopening a period can
lead to further unposted items. If you choose to go this route, please ensure
that your data entry personnel do not enter any transactions into this period.

When creating a receipt, why can I not see a particular bank account in the LOV for payment methods?
The Payment Method could have an End Date associated to the Bank Account.
How come all the other bank accounts can be seen in the LOV when they have not got a Receipt Class/Payment method setup?
When you query back the receipt Class this only shows the first Payment Method assigned to the Receipt Class.
You have to place your cursor on the Payment Method and arrow down to see all the other associated payment methods that will be listed in the LOV
