Reoccurring AP Bill or Invoice

TOPS [ONE] Version



Processing accounts payable involves handling the invoices submitted by vendors or other providers for services to the community.  Such bills are then paid by check or marked as paid using the hand-written check option in TOPS ONE.

For repetitive bills, such as Monthly Management Fees, Maintenance Contract bills or annual reserve contributions, bills can be scheduled to post on a specific future day or multiple days throughout the year.  Once scheduled, bills are saved in the system where you can easily select, edit if needed, and post when due.

This guide will go over how to create a scheduled Bill.


Step By Step 

1. Click  Accounts Payable then select Enter Bills

2. This will open the Enter Bills page:

3. Enter the Vendors name

Or Add a new vendor. Click the Folder icon then Add image002.png , fill out the appropriate information, and Click Add Vendor

4. Leave the Type as Bill

5. Enter the bill as normal, but selectin the Scheduling option “Schedule – Accrue and Notify Me”.
