  • Bank statement showing date of cash receipt (optional)
  • Listing from your client's source system

Start procedure

  1. Start by arranging your client listing in a table format. You will want to ensure you have the transaction amount, any delivery dates or payment dates available, and a unique customer reference to allow you to reconcile the documents.

  2. Import your supporting evidence including proof of delivery, and the proof of payment receipt such as a cheque. If you would also like to check the date of payment you can include a bank statement optionally. 

  3. Click the document matching button in the DataSnipper toolbar.
  4. Configure the document matching test by letting the tool know which row your headers are located in and which columns to output the snipped data in.

  5. Click the match all rows button. Once the matching is completed you can review the output by moving through the snipped cells.
  6. Use the text snip to extract any other data which you didn't have in your listing e.g. the delivery date.

  7. Document conclusions over whether the accounts receivable balance was correctly included or not.
