New Statement of Cash Flows, Batch Supplier Payment Reports and more

These last few weeks we have been working on a new Statement of Cash Flows report. This report is now available in the reports section (Reports >> Show all reports).

The Statement of Cash Flows report breaks down the inflows and outflows of cash in your business and divides them into 3 main categories.

  • Cash flows from Operating Activities - e.g. sales receipts and purchase expenditure
  • Cash flows from Investment Activities - e.g. acquisition or disposal of assets
  • Cash flows from Finance Activities - e.g. new loans or loan repayments

The Statement of Cash Flows report is a very useful tool for identifying if your business is running at a cash surplus or deficit. The report also helps to identify important cash flow trends, allowing you to make practical and informed decisions about the future.

QuickFile now make it easier to generate an abbreviated or detailed supplier payment report in CSV (spreadsheet format). This report can provide a simple overview of all your outstanding supplier balances along with their corresponding bank details for further import into your batch payment software. You can also opt to export a detailed list of outstanding invoices grouped by supplier.

You can find this report in the “More Options” menu on the main “Purchase Management” screen.

View and Undo Recent Batched Bank Uploads

When you import a CSV file or data feed to your bank, we keep a record of all these batch imports. This makes it easy to see how many new bank entries were created, when they were imported, and from where they originated (e.g. bank feed, CSV upload etc).

If ever you need to reverse any of these batch imports, you can do so providing the transactions remain untagged.

From your bank statement view click on the “More Options” menu followed by “View Recent Batch Uploads”, you will then see a formatted list of uploads from the last 2 months.

Which suggests to me that if you want to do an import you’re not 100% sure will work it’d be as well to turn off automatic bank tagging rules first…

That’s correct, you can then enable it again as soon as you’re sure the import went as planned. The auto-tagging will then go do its thing.
