Interest on overdue debtors
You may generate transactions for those Debtor (customer / client) accounts, which are overdue and have a percentage monthly interest entered in the Debtors (Accounting information tab) (Action ribbon).
If this option is initiated, TurboCASH will calculate the Interest and generate the transactions. Once the batch has been posted, the Debtor (customer / client) accounts will be increased (debited) and the selected contra account (e.g. interest received - income account) will also be increased (credited).
