I was preparing the final payment run for May yesterday.The payment remittances were generated by our software system with a 31/05/2019 date.
However, since i am not in the UK(my position is outsourced ) and there was a flood in the factory that i work (all of the computers were shut down and there was no access to internet in the afternoon) , i was not able to send the online payment file with the supplier payments to my colleagues in the UK that day.
Will there be a problem that i will be sending the file Monday morning ? Since the name of the online payment file is named 31/05/2019 i will enter the payments in the cashbook for May with that date and not with a 03/06/2019 date (Monday) for June .Since the authorization date ( time ) for each payment is different (on the date posted column of the cashbook is shown the date on which the payment has been released by the bank- in the prevoius months despite the fact that the online payment file is from the 30th of the month,all of the payments from the file were released (posted) after that date ),i guess that will not be a problem?Will all of this cause any problems when it comes to matching the bank receipts ,cashbook entries,cash postings in the software system ?
This is the first time that the date of payment remittances summary report generated by our software system is not the same as the date i sent the online payment file my colleagues in the UK.
i am asking all of this, since i do not have acces to internet banking and my CFO is entering the online payment file in the internet banking
