Some of your payments may recur frequently such as monthly rental income, or family loan payments etc. Farm Focus allows these invoices to be automatically generated, once the first invoice has been created, by using the repeat invoice function or an invoice can be copied.
Benefits of a repeating invoice?
Way to check your monthly rental has been paid (Eg: you have a farm house and receive rent monthly. Create a repeating invoice. If you are unable to match this invoice to a corresponding monthly transaction you know your rent has not been paid for that period)
If you have a hire purchase and claimed all the GST, create a repeating invoice for future repayments to ensure you don't claim the GST twice.
If a repeating invoices occurs in the current month, Farm Focus can predict your daily bank balance in your Working Plan and you will be alerted if your bank balance is predicted to exceed your Overdraft limit.
