If you are using Internet Explorer 8 you will not be able to use Connect to GL as it is not supported by IE8.
Bank reconciliations and GST returns need to be done in the Cashmanager RURAL database.
Amendments to transactions must be made in the Cashmanager RURAL database.
Adjustments that relate to pre-GL export periods will not be processed.
Bank Transfers: It is not possible for Cashmanager RURAL to distinguish between money being transferred between bank accounts internally and shareholders funds introduced etc. We advise you to map “Bank Transfers” in Cashmanager RURAL to the GL’s “Suspense” account.
You can then journal from suspense to the correct account in the ledger.
NB: There are no suspense accounts in Cashmanager RURAL.
Once the first period to export to GL has been sent, the subsequent period’s batches will be processed in chronological order. It is not possible to
process periods prior to the initially exported / downloaded period.
