Excerpt from Olivia Reins Dental Group Policies and Procedures Manual
PURCHASING
1. Olivia personally purchases all dental supplies needed by the business. A purchase order is rarely used because the supplies are usually bought over the counter by Olivia. Dental supplies are bought from Teeth and Teeth Necessities.
2. Supplies and business needs other than dental supplies are usually purchased by the bookkeeper.
3. At the time of purchase, a printed invoice is received listing all items and total cost of supplies. All details are checked for accuracy. Should there be a discrepancy, a telephone call is made to the supplier and a new tax invoice is requested.
4. Suppliers usually send a statement at the end of the month, however, some invoices are payable on invoice, not statement.
5. On receipt of the statement, the bookkeeper checks this statement with the invoices received at the time of the purchase.
6. Credit terms vary from supplier to supplier. No discounts are allowed by any suppliers. Olivia is given a trade price at the time of purchase.
SUPPLIER PAYMENT PROCEDURES
1. Upon receipt of an invoice, the validity and accuracy of the invoice must be checked before entering into the data file.
2. Statements received are reconciled with invoices received. And the invoices are entered into the computerised system.
3. Due dates of supplier invoices are monitored using the “To Do List”.
4. Accounts are paid by BPAY, electronic transfer or cheque. All cheques are accompanied by a remittance slip. Electronic payments register must be authorised by Olivia before uploading to the bank. Remittance advice is provided to the customer once payment has been made.
5. Expenses incurred by the bookkeeper (e.g. office supplies) must be authorised by Olivia using a Cheque Requisition Slip.
6. The bookkeeper is authorised to pay accounts by BPAY, transfer electronic payments (after approval by Olivia) and sign cheques.
7. At the end of the month, a payables reconciliation report is printed to make sure the Payables Subsidiary Ledger and General Ledger reconcile. This report includes the supplier’s invoice number and due date.
This report (excluding the ageing details) is exported to Excel and reviewed by Olivia, who authorises the accounts (reflected in the Excel printout) to be paid by the bookkeeper, who must consider the cash flow situation.
