Aged debtor report by due date

It's very difficult to monitor the sales ledger when the aged debtor report is only aged by invoice date. Different customers have different payment terms, so the report should be aged on due date to highlight invoices that are overdue for payment and those that are coming due in the next week. Every other accounting software I have used does this!

    This really needs to be addressed. At the moment I am having to download into an excel spreadsheet as a detailed report, then move them over into net monthly months. Same with both ledgers and it is time consuming and inefficient. In my opinion this is a basic thing that should be part of any accounting package to chose a report based on customer or supplier terms and not just in days overdue. Please look into this urgently!

    This is such an obvious and basic request. Customers and suppliers have different payment terms. We need reports aged on due dates to keep track of cashflow and payments due. I love Sage, but this is such a problem.

    Agree - we can set the due date for individual records but the due date doesnt show on the supplier or customer activity screen or on the reports. Not helpful or user friendly

    Totally agree - it would increase visibility of debt and help with credit control. Currently it causes confusion to the senior management as they get a false sense of what's owed and days overdue.

    In Sage 50 we had a report called 'Outstanding Customer Invoices' by due date, but there is nothing similar now. Please can this be added?

    Hi there,

    I run a debtors report every month and it puts the totals into the periods from the date of the invoice not the date due for payment. It would be very helpful to have a debtors report that showed you what was really over as per the customers credit terms and the invoice due date instead of the invoice date.

    The same applies to the Aged Creditors report - it would be much more useful to have invoices aged on their due date rather than the invoice date.
