Cash Sales


Cash Sales in AccountingSuite combine the functionality of Sales Invoices and Cash Receipts in one step.

Cash Sales can be used for a point-of-sale system or anywhere the product and the cash exchange hands at the same time. This type of transaction forgoes Accounts Receivable and records directly to the bank or cash on hand account. This can used when AccountingSuite is being utilized as a POS solution.
