Cleemy Expenses is your expense report management solution and, consequently, it offers a payment option. Our solution offers two methods to simplify management and meet the needs of your accounting department.
Cleemy Expenses’s two payment methods
The expense report cycles through different statuses as Cleemy Expenses processes it: submitted, approved, approved & controlled, waiting for payment, paid. There are two ways to trigger switching to the last two statuses:
- Implicit payment through the accounting export
- Payment through the dedicated module
When payment of the expense report is triggered in Cleemy Expenses, its status switches to ‘Waiting for payment’. The length of time it remains in this status before switching to ‘Paid’ can be configured in the ‘Payment’ tab of the ‘Management rules’ menu in your Settings menu.
Changing an expense report after it was paid
If an expense report is changed after payment, it is not reversed (with a reversing transaction); its accounting entry is directly modified.
This is not a problem for the integrity of the amounts due as calculated by Cleemy Expenses: the payment module identifies all lines for the third-party accounts in Cleemy Expenses and adjusts them at the slightest change to the amount (this is matching and unmatching in accounting).
After a modification, the expense reports keep the paid status: in most cases, it is a correction of an incorrect expense or the refusal of an expense. The bulk of the expense report is actually paid, even if there will be an adjustment on the next payment.
Cleemy Expenses exports payment accounting entries
If your accounting export format contains line templates for payments, Cleemy Expenses will export the payment accounting entries if the ‘Journals to export’ filter includes the payment log.
If your export format does not include payment entries, Cleemy Expenses will create them in its internal accounting to take into consideration (by unmatching) any changes made to an expense report that was already paid.
