The Accounts Receivable (AR) module of the University’s Finance System (CUFS) deals with managing customer information and managing income generated from sales and donations.

In this course we will be looking at some of the key aspects such as:

  • creating external invoices
  • creating internal invoices
  • receipting income relating to invoices
  • receipting other income

We will also provide you with some basic information relating to banking procedures and to the University’s Online Store (also known as eSales).

This course covers the essentials for keeping your AR accounts in order. In addition to showing you how to make corrections, receipt foreign currencies and the required month/year-end reports we will also show you how you can save time by setting up memo lines, sales persons and receivable activities for your department.

AR Part 3 - Customer Set-up in Accounts Receivable new Tue 16 Jan 2018   09:30 CANCELLED

With the introduction of e-Sales, and the centralising of setting up customers in Accounts Receivable, there is little need for departments to set up or amend customers in AR. This central service is designed to reduce the administrative burden on the departments, eliminate customer duplication, ensure consistent set up and identify situations where credit checks might be required or where eSales (WPM) would be a better alternative to conventional invoicing.

If a department wishes to maintain this set up within the department a new AR Manager responsibility will be required. To receive this responsibility you must attend this compulsory master class. The master class will provide you with the opportunity to practice setting up and amending customers within CUFS. Upon completion of the course you will receive your AR Manager responsibility.

Please Note: Departments are encouraged to either use e-Sales, or take advantage of this central service. There is no need to register; simply complete and email the form through as and when you have a new customer or amendment request (

eSales Departments are encouraged to consider if using the CUFS module to set up and raise invoices to private individuals is the best option and whether it would be more appropriate to use the University’s online store. For more information please see the eSales website or watch the three short videos below which give an overview of what the eSales system looks like and what it can do.
