One of the new features in Sage MAS 90 and MAS 200 4.40 PU 3 is the ability to post Bank Fees and Adjustments to the General Ledger from the Bank Reconciliation module.
This has to be one of the most requested features for any user of the MAS 90 Bank Rec module.
From Modules | Bank Reconciliation | Main select Check, Deposit, and Adjustment Entry. There are a few new features here. From either the Checks tab
or the Dep/Adjust tab
you now have access to a “Select For G/L Posting” check box and a “Distribution Account No.”. If you check the GL Posting check box, it will allow you to enter the distribution account number.
Once you’ve finished entering your adjustments you can click the new “B/R Trans Register button at the bottom of the Check, Deposit, and Adjustment Entry screen (highlighted in red above).
You’ll then be prompted to select the bank code or leave it blank for all and select the GL Posting date and print and update as you would any other module.
One place where the posting from Bank Rec is different from other modules is that you can delete the record from Check, Deposit, and Adjustment Entry after it’s been posted and it won’t update the GL. Also the account number can’t be changed after it’s been posted, so you’ll either need to correct with a GL Journal entry or enter a correcting entry if there is a problem with an account that has been selected.
If you try to update the Bank Reconciliation Register and purge cleared transactions you will get the following message and be unable to purge until you have run the Bank Reconciliation Transaction Register and updated it (or deleted the transactions).
