Automating receivables with Codat
An overview of the receivables automation use case supported by Codat
Engage Codat and automate your customers' accounts receivable processes by reflecting outstanding and received invoices from their buyers in their accounting platforms.
How Codat can help
We can support B2B payment and invoicing software companies, payment providers, and vertical SaaS companies in their activity by leveraging our Accounting API product.
For example, the Accounting API eliminates the need to manually reconcile invoices raised in third party applications, keeping invoicing applications in sync with the accounting platform. It also automatically records payments made against an invoice or customer account and provides visibility of income received from the sale of goods or provision of services.
We have done the heavy lifting for you by building integrations with a standardized data model to the accounting platforms your customers already use. This gives you access to real-time data that you can pull, create, or update to support your use case.
For example, you can pull the following data from our endpoints:
bankAccountsto retrieve a list of bank accounts which can be mapped, enabling the user to specify which bank account payments are received into.
accountsto retrieve a list of accounts which can be mapped, enabling the user to choose which GL account income and any platform fees should be recorded against.
trackingCategoriesto retrieve a list of tracking categories which can be mapped, enabling the user to track income against identifiers which sit outside of their chart of accounts, including departments and locations.
taxRatesto retrieve a list of tax rates which can be pushed against invoices.
Then, use the same API to create invoices and credit notes within the accounting application. Once an invoice has been created, a payment can then be pushed to the customer's accounting platform with a payment link, allocating and reconciling a payment against an invoice, credit note, or payment on account.
