  • Next sales invoice no: Sales invoice number to be assigned to the next sales invoice.

  • Next purchase order enquiry no: Enquiry number to be assigned to the next purchase order enquiry.
  • Next purchase order no: Purchase order number to be assigned to the next purchase order.
  • Next purchase invoice no: Number to be assigned to the next purchase invoice.

If this is greater than the actual number of digits in the document number, then the number is prefiixed with zeros to give required number of digits. For example, for an invoice number of 1234 and this Digits parameter set to 6 then the number will be prefixed with 2 leading zeros to give an 6-digit number, 001234.
  • Backup File Naming Template: When you backup company data, a backup file is created in the designated (see Backup Dir under Workstation section) folder.

If the number of digits were set to 6, the the file name would be as follows: si_002345-(xyz789_20140323).

Company : Currency & Tax

Company accounts may be aged (i.e. how long customers have owed you money for and how long you have owed money to your suppliers) in a number of ways.

Configurations: Currency


  • Base Currency: You can select the currency that your company trades in. This can only be selected or set at the start, before any financial transactions are recorded.

  • Edit Exchange Rate: Tick this box if users are allowed to edit foreign currency exchange rates.
  • Currency Conversion: When dealing with foreign currency, you have the option of either calculating foreign currency value from the base currency and exchange rate or the system can calculate the base currency value from the foreign currency and exchange rate.
  • VAT Return Tax Codes: Enter a comma delimited list of tax codes into the nine fields (Box 1 - Box 9) that represent the appropriate boxes on the VAT return. Each tax code represents the transaction types that are to be collated for the different VAT return box. If you have made a mistake or are not sure of what should be entered into these fields then you can use the Reset button to reset the values in these boxes back to their original values.
  • Digital Tax: If you wish to submit your VAT returns digitally to the HRMC directly from within Ice Ledger then enter a tick in this box. Before you can submit VAT returns digitally, you MUST:

    1. Have a Government Gateway login for your business. If you do not have one then you can create a new account by visiting the HMRC website.
    2. Sign your business up for Making Tax Digital for VAT. After signing up, you will have to wait for a confirmation email from HMRC.
    3. Once you have completed the above 2 steps, have received the confirmation email and have your login credentials to hand, tick the option for Digital Tax to continue.
    • Authorise: Click this button and you will then be automatically directed to the HMRC web portal. Follow the on screen instructions and enter your business login credentials. This will lead you to a page similar to the one below.

      Here, you have the options to either Grant or Deny Authority. Granting Authority will allow you to submit your VAT returns using Ice Ledger. You can repeat this process at any time to revoke authority at which point you will no longer be able to submit VAT returns using Ice Ledger.
       

    • Get Access Token: Once access has been granted, an access token is require to submit a VAT return. This access token is valid for a period of 4-hours. Ordinarily, you will not need to obtain an access token as the system does this automatically prior to you submitting a VAT return.
  • Enable MTD Bridge: Even if you are not using Ice Ledger as your company accounting software, you can use its MTD bridging facility to submit your VAT to HMRC. Simply enable this option to allow you to import your VAT figures from a spreadsheet. The spreadsheet can be in any format. You just need to make a note of the cell-references that contain the figures for the different VAT Boxes 1 - 9. For more details, on using the MTD bridging option, search for Ice Ledger on YouTube and watch the short video on MTD Bridge.

EPOS : Electronic Point of Sale

Configurations: Point of Sale


Ice Ledger can be configured for use as a point of sale terminal or to put it in another words, used to operate tills. For further details, go to: EPOS features.

For every till terminal that is to be setup, you must define at least two nominal codes - one for cash sales and another for credit card sales. These are used to record the daily sales for each till. You should not use the same nominal codes for two or more tills. If you do then sales figures for these tills will be pooled together.

When a till is 'cashed up', at the end of the day or a shift, the money and total value of all credit card sales are transferred to the master bank nominal codes for cash and credit cards. Any shortfalls are added to the Shortage nominal code.

EPOS configurations include:

  • Master Cash Nominal: Bank nominal code to be used for transferring all till cash sales to.
  • Master Credit Card Nominal: Bank nominal code to be used for transferring all till credit / debit card sales to.
  • Shortage Nominal: Nominal code to be used for recording all shortages when cashing up, at the end of a sales session for a till.
  • Till ID: This is the ID of the computer that is being used as the till.
  • Cash Nom: Bank nominal code dedicated to the specific till for cash sales.
  • Credit Nom: Bank nominal code dedicated to the specific till for credit / debit card sales.
  • Till Float: This is the cash amount that is put in to the till at the start of day.

  • Open Print Files Automatically?: If this option is checked then when you print a document to a file then the file will be opened automatically.
  • Stock List Refresh Interval: Is this is set to 1 or higher then the Stock Items list view will be refreshed automatically, every selected number of minutes, to display the most up to date information. This is useful in a multi-user setup where the stock levels may change due to activity of other users on the network.
  • Stock List Refresh Interval: You can define the folder location where shared files are to be saved. If you want individual users to be able to access their customisation settings from other workstations on the network, then you should define a folder on the network that can be accessed by all the workstations concerned.

  • User Server Mode: This option determins how the program fetched data from the server. In non server mode, the system fetched ALL the data, as per all the filter settings. This means when there is a large amount of data / number of transactions, it can take some time for the server to retrieve the data and also place a higher load on the network traffic. In the Server Mode, the system only retrieves a small subset of data for displaying on the screen. This is updated automatically as you scroll down the screen, with the system getting the required data. As a result, the server does not have to do as much work, there is a much lower load on the network traffic and the system is much faster and responsive. This feature is implemented only in the Sales Order list view.
