Set up or view a credit limit

You determine the credit limit amount per debtor. The credit limit is the maximum amount of outstanding items and packing slips/quotations/orders that the debtor is allowed.

The amount still allowed is calculated as follows: Credit limit -/- (Outstanding balance + Amount of outstanding packing slips + Amount of invoices not journalised + Quotation/Order amount).

You can modify the settings via the entry layout so that when you add a quotation, order, packing slip or invoice, the credit limit must be checked. When a credit limit is exceeded, Profitwill issue a message.

You can add the ‘Credit Limit’ column to views, such as the list of debtor balances. This makes it easy for you to compare the credit limit with the outstanding balance.
