Following payment of invoices and bills, Remittance advice type emails can be sent to customers and suppliers. The wording for each can be seen and edited via Contacts > Emails > Email templates:





There are email templates for three types of remittance advice:

Payment - which acknowledges the payment received from a customer
Remittance - which informs a supplier that their bill has been paid
Payment remittance - which tells a customer or supplier how a single payment has been allocated to the invoice/bill.


Here's what you do to generate the emails:


Step 1.


Edit each template to provide the wording and information that suits you and your contacts.  Note that, when you generate each email, you are able to edit the standard wording you've set up.



Step 2.
