Method of Payment

Methods of Payment act for the calculation off effective cashflows in the Cashflow statement (contrary to expenses and incomes according to the Profit & Loss statement).

Methods of Payment can be allocated to the following input entities:

Methods of Payment are included in the financial model per Transaction Date (TRX) at the earliest. Date inputs before Transaction can be entered but aren't included in the calculations until Transaction (Value = 0). Possible Open Items, for example Sales Receivables, which are transferred by Transaction can be entered as Open Item.

When no Method of Payment is used, the Profit & Loss statement is consistent with the Cashflow statement. Affected net current assets have a value of 0 in the Balancesheet.
