A prepayment is an acknowledgement of money taken from a customer, but it isn’t yest treated as revenue from an accounting perspective. Gojee facilitates these transactions by creating “Prepayments” transactions in Xero, linking them to the jobs and the customer that the payment was taken from.
This enables users to take deposits against their jobs prior to commencing work, without needing to raise an invoice.
Gojee has an automated workflow attached to prepayments, in which these payments are automatically allocated to invoices once they are raised for the job the prepayment was taken for. This saves time and admin, and ensures your accounts are always up to date.
To get started, navigate to the Job Actions menu for a job and select Prepayments. Alternatively you can click “Deposits & Payments” from home screen:
