Two main changes have been included in today's release, one very important for invoicing, the other very useful for those oh-oh moments.
With GST to rise from 12.5% to 15% effective 1 October, you are probably wondering how does this affect my eCargo invoices created in eCargo? Well the good news is that you don’t need to worry about a thing.
One of the benefits of online software is that you don’t need to install any updates or make any changes yourself. The eCargo team have been hard at work to assist you with a smooth transition to the new tax rate.
- GST Changes: All invoices created on or after 1 October will use the new 15% rate. The exception to this rule is when a pre-1 October invoice is being credited and re-issued. In this case the Credit Note and subsequent Debit Note will use the 12.5% GST rate. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have an queries or concerns about the cutover to the new GST rate
- Void Invoices: Invoices that have not yet been approved can now be voided. This action will change the invoice status to Void, remove the invoice PDF and re-set all the invoice lines (consignments) back to their previous status – which may mean they re-appear on the Invoice Dashboard ready to be invoiced again. Invoices can be voided one at a time from the Invoice Details page or, for those really bad days, in bulk from Invoice Summary page.
Bug Fixes/General Enhancements
- Improved performance when searching for consignments: Whenever you view consignments in eCargo Premium the consignment search is used. This is a core function that is used extensively throughout the eCargo system, from returning a single job to a list of 500. We tweaked it's performance to speed it up a little. Watch this space for more Premium performance improvements.
