Book-keeping and reconciliation

Reconciliation (attributing bank statement transactions to the appropriate membership, event booking etc) in accounting tasks → reconciliation has a new way of working. This is mainly because of the introduction of broader accounting functions. A new “chart of accounts” provides book-keeping account categories to which you can attribute transactions. That lets you keep track of the purpose of items of income and expenditure, and report on them. At the same time, Cameo also introduces Invoices, quotations and purchase orders that you can attribute to if you choose to use the accounting functions. You can also attribute payments more finely. For example, recording not just donations, but by separate fundraising campaigns. Read More…

Bank statement updates

resents bank statements a little differently in accounting info → statements and transactions. Manual import of bank statements also works a little differently, in accounting tasks → import statements. Also in that section, you can now add single transactions to bank accounts directly (no need to construct a CSV for occasional transactions). Financial year is no longer necessarily aligned with calendar month. Read More…
