Setup

For Products, Payment Methods, Bank Accounts, and optionally Funds, you will need to specify the accounting codes used by your accounting system to which the money should be allocated. This is done within the Accounts Interface Code.

The Accounts Interface Code is added via Settings > Configuration for each item (Products, Payment methods, Bank Accounts, Funds) - as per the example screenshot below - once you have added the account code click on Save Changes. Repeat for each item as required.

Creating the Accounts Download File

From the Financial menu select Accounts Download (Financial > Accounts Download):

  • Enter the range of dates for the transactions that you want to be included in the download
  • Select the type of download you need from the drop-down list:

Donorfy will then create a download file containing transactions in the range of dates you have entered that have not been previously downloaded. When ready your download file will be shown in the list of available downloads.

 

Which Transactions Get Selected?

Donorfy will look for allocations

  • which are closed
  • where the accounting date is within the range of dates you entered
  • have an accounts code set 
  • have not been in a previous accounts download

 

What Gets Exported?

A Transaction list is a CSV file that contains the following fields:

  • Date (accounting date)
  • Accounts Interface Code assigned to the Product
  • Currency
  • Amount 
  • Department
  • Accounts Interface Code assigned to the Fund
  • Accounts Interface Code assigned to the Bank Account
  • Accounts Interface Code assigned to the Payment Method 
  • Reference
  • Constituent title, first name, last name & number
  • Product Description
  • Payment Method Description
  • Batch Number (if the transaction was entered in a batch)
  • Processing Costs - e.g. Stripe or GoCardless fees
  • Amount less any Processing Costs

 

A Sage Line 50 file

  • is a CSV file containing the bank receipt (BR) journal entries,
  • the Bank Account ref field will be based on Accounts Interface code you associated with your bank accounts
  • the Nominal Code will be the Accounts Interface code you associated with the Product, if that is not present any Accounts Interface code you associated with the fund will be used
  • The tax code will be set to T0 and the tax amount will be 0
  • The Amount is less any Processing Costs

 

NOTE

If you are using the Charities edition of Sage Line 50 (known as Sage Line 50c), the import does not allow you to include the Fund. The import is exactly the same as for the standard Line 50 product. If you need to specify a fund it has to be manually added using the Corrections feature in Sage after the import. Please see this article from the Sage knowledge base for more info (in the Data You Can't Import section).

 

A Quickbooks File

Quickbooks uses the standard IIF file which outputs the following:

 

TRNSID TRNSTYPE DATE ACCNT NAME CLASS AMOUNT DOCNUM MEMO PAYMETH
null null Transaction Date

Accounts Interface Code assigned to the Bank Account

Constituent Type null Net Amount Paid * Constituent Number + Name Accounts Interface Code assigned to the Payment Method 

 

SPLID TRNSTYPE DATE ACCNT NAME CLASS AMOUNT DOCNUM MEMO PAYMETH
null null Transaction Date Accounts Interface Code assigned to the Product Constituent Type Team Name 

or 

RES34
Net Amount Paid * Constituent Number + Name Accounts Interface Code assigned to the Payment Method 



 

Resetting the process

If an error has been made, then the Accounts Download process can be easily reset via the Undo function. You can undo an Accounts download at any time, see Undo an Accounts Download

 

 

Deleting an Accounts Download

If you have finished with the file/s within your Account Download, these can be deleted from the available download files list. 

 

Note:
Deleting a file will be permanent and will 'lock' the transactions within the files so that they are not available for download again. 

This is a safeguard feature, to ensure that transactions can not be exported to your finance systems and lead to double accounting.
