Purpose


This report is designed to break a payment made on a booking or invoice into the room and extras components. This is useful for those on cash accounting basis where the sale is recognised when the payment is received rather than when the sale is made.


For payments made against bookings that have not been invoiced, the payment is apportioned to all components of the booking. For payments made against bookings that have been invoiced, the payment is apportioned only to the components of the booking that have been included in the invoice. So if a payment is for a specific component or components of a booking, then those components must be separately invoiced and the payment made against that invoice.


Note that this report is only accurate while there is no change to a booking or invoice. If items are subsequently added, then the payment apportionment will change and the report could give different values.
