You may select Invoices from the Invoice history which occur frequently or on a regular basis (e.g. every month) and to set them as repeating invoices.

In addition to this feature, you may schedule Repeating invoices as events on the Input → Calendar menu. You may select to generate Invoices for selected Invoices or Quotes from the Invoice History List to one or many Debtor (customer / client) accounts. 

Once selected Invoices are generated, TurboCASH4 will generate Invoice numbers and the transactions will be copied into normal Invoice documents for the selected debtor or debtors. 

To check and /or edit these Invoices you need to access the Invoices on the Invoice icon (Input → Documents → Invoices → Enter menu) and select the Debtor (customer / client) account for which you have copied a repeating Invoice. 

Finally, you need to update (post) the Invoices to the ledger for the selected debtor or debtors. This feature saves you the extra work of entering these Invoices each month. 

To generate Repeating invoices: 

1.Click on the Edit → Repeating invoices menu. 

Ctrl + W

The "Invoice history" screen will be displayed. All the posted and unposted Invoices associated for your debtors (customers / clients) will be listed. These Invoices will be listed according to the Invoice number:

5.Enter the date or select the date (using the date picker) on which you wish to generate the repeating invoices. This date will be displayed as the Invoice date on the Invoices, and it will also be the transaction date when the Invoice(s) is updated (posted) to the ledger.

There are three lines to enter a message. 

If you enter the message, you should not exceed the viewable area of each line. If too many characters are entered in a line, the characters exceeding the line, will not be displayed on the Document entry screen and on the printed Invoice.

The generated repeating invoices can be selected when you select Invoices (Input → Documents → Invoices → Enter menu). You need to select the Debtor (customer / client) account and the Invoice number to check, edit (if necessary) and print the Invoices. Finally, you need to update (post) the Invoices to the ledger to update the transactions to the general ledger, debtors ledger, and the stock ledger.
