Bank Runs

Bank Runs Menu

The Bank Runs module in Signet allows you to create a Bank Run (or Batch) of transactions to be posted to various bank accounts.

The actual transactions can be Debits or Credits.

Transactions can be sourced from the Creditors Module, Debtors Module, or entered directly into the Bank Runs Module. To this end, the module allows you to maintain accounts to be debited/credited.

All bank account details (whichever module they are entered into) are immediately verified. This can save you a fair amount of money in not getting invalid account type rejections back from the Bank.

Once you are ready to post a Bank Run, you have three options:

  • Create an ACB (Automated Clearing Bureau) compatible file. If your bank supports this, this is the best choice, as the file is properly formatted for import into the ACB computers.
  • Create an ASCII export file. Should you have a banking system installed on your computer, which can import text files, Signet can format the file in the exact layout required.
  • Several Standard Export formats (e.g. Nedbank / Standard Bank) are also provided for
  • Print the Bank Run on a Printer. Should neither of the above two options be viable, you can always print the report, and take this to your Bank.

After a Bank Run has been posted, you can further manipulate it and track the transactions which were accepted / rejected.

Rejected transactions can then be brought forward into a future Bank Run for re-posting. You also have the option to add a "bank rejection" charge to the amount.

You can also create Regular Postings, which are posted to the Bank on a regular basis. For these Regular Postings, you can:

  • Specify the Starting Date, Ending Date, and Frequency.
  • Specify a Regular Increase to be applied (e.g. Increase by 10% every 12 months)
  • Attach external documents (e.g. a scan of the original authorisation)
