Enter the transactions once in the "Repeating transactions" batch entry screen. You may then Import the transactions into the normal "Batch entry" screen using the "Repeating transactions" option on the F9:Process options.

To enter Repeating transactions:  

1.On the Action ribbon, select Edit → Repeating transactions


The  Debit and Credit totals will not be displayed. These totals are only displayed if the "Batch type" selection screen is launched from the Batch entry (F2) (Action ribbon)

2.Select the General Jnl batch type and click on the Open button.

To indicate that you have selected a Repeating transactions batch (journal), note the following:

***Repeating transactions*** is displayed after the name of the batch type. 

No alias for the batch will be displayed in the screen heading (title bar). 

3.Click on the F10:Setup icon to set your batch up

4.Set up the Repeating transactions General journal for depreciation transactions as follows:

a)Contra account - Select the contra (balancing) account (e.g. Depreciation expense account). 

b)Amount entry - Select Credit.

5.Click on the Advanced tab. 

6.Select the “General ledger” option for the Account lookup type, since you do not need to select Debtor (customer / client) or Creditor (supplier / vendor) accounts when you enter transactions for depreciation.

7.Once setup; click on the OK button.


Since No Tax (VAT/GST/Sales tax) is applicable, to the depreciation transactions in this topic, we have selected to hide the Tax column in the Setup options.

11.The Repeating transactions for General journal screen should now reflect as follows:batch-repeating-transactions-batch-entry

A Repeating Batch differs from a normal batch as follows: 

Title bar - displays  *** Repeating transactions *** 

F6:Post - Disabled since you cannot post repeating transactions.

Lines - Background colour.  

12.Click on the F5:Balance icon to balance the batch. TurboCASH will generate a balancing entry to the Depreciation Contra account. 

If the description is displayed as "BALANCING ENTRY General Jnl", and you have entered transactions with Tax, the Tax reports may not include these transactions correctly. 

You need to deselect (remove the tick) of the "Consolidate balancing" field on the Standard tab of the F10:Setup ("Options for this batch" screen) and balance the batch again.

13.Click on the F8:List icon to print a list of the transactions in the batch.


It is recommended that the source documents (e.g. working papers, calculations, etc.) be attached to this List of the transactions and that it be retained for record and audit purposes.

You may also click on the reportman-preview-icon-save icon (Save the report as a metafile report), and save it as a PDF - compressed file for archiving purposes. 

14.Press the Esc key to exit this repeating batch.
