To make a repayment using the collection sheet (and productive collection sheet)

The collection sheet is a way to create bulk transactions for repayment of loans (For more information, please Click Here). You can use collection sheet in two ways.
  • Using it as a Productive Collection Sheet where you have to provide three parameters, namely: Office, Meeting Date and Staff & later you can chose respective centers before submission.
  • Using it as just a 'Collection Sheet' where you can provide Office, Meeting Date, Staff and Center. Providing 'Group Name' is optional here.

Using Productive Collection Sheet:

To make loan repayments from a saving account (standing instruction transfer)

Standing instructions can be set up to transfer funds from a saving account to a loan account. The transfer will take place based on the schedule defined in the standing instruction. For a loan repayment, the standing instruction schedule can be set to match the loan repayment schedule.
The saving account from which the transfer originates needs not belong to the same client that the loan account belongs to. The client who owns the originating account must request/authorize the standing instruction.
The originating and destination accounts must be in the same currency.
Need to describe what happens when a standing instruction cannot be completed because of a shortage of funds in the originating account. There seems to be an outstanding issue in JIRA regarding re-attempts to satisfy the standing instruction.
Locate the client or group whose savings account will be the origination of the funds for the transfer.
  1. 1.
    Click More and Create standing instructions to create new standing instructions.
  2. 2.
    Complete the fields on the Create Standing Instruction form. See Standing Instruction form fields.
  3. 3.
    Click Submit.
The standing instruction will be created and will be in effect from the Validity from date until the To date inclusive; or until the standing instruction is Disabled.
