How the MoneyWorks Accounting Link Works
Ostendo Operations performs all of the operational functions of the system and posts General Ledger transactions to MoneyWorks based on mapping rules that are setup. MoneyWorks is used for financial reporting, BAS/GST returns, bank reconciliations accounts receivable and accounts payable.
Sales invoices are raised in Ostendo Operations for jobs or sales orders and these are posted to MoneyWorks. Payments for sales invoices are entered in MoneyWorks which updates the invoices in Ostendo Operations with the payment applied. Payments can also be processed in Ostendo and posted to MoneyWorks, which would be required for Point-of-Sale.
Supplier invoices for inventory or job costing are entered in Ostendo Operations for three way matching with the purchase receipt and the purchase order. Alternatively, they can be entered directly against a job or work order if there is no purchase order, such as for job disbursements. Supplier invoices are posted to MoneyWorks where they are paid. Normal expenses, such as electricity or rent, are entered directly into MoneyWorks.
Customer and supplier records are automatically updated from Ostendo Operations to MoneyWorks.
MoneyWorks supports multi-currency, but Ostendo Operations is able to transact purchases and sales in foreign currency and convert to local currency when posting to MoneyWorks.
We do not implement or support MoneyWorks, but we collaborate with MoneyWorks Partners and accountants who provide those services.
