Maybe once or twice a day, a batch of invoices are printed These are then sent to the Packing and Despatch Department who pack the goods and enclose the invoice in a sealed pouch on the outside of the box Once the invoices are printed The stock figures are automatically adjusted by the computer system The customer’s records are adjusted to show the total amount outstanding

7 Receiving payments At the end of every month, statements will be printed for each customer with an outstanding balance The customer will then pay either by cheque or by BACS The Accounts Department will be able to look up any customer’s account A report of overdue accounts will be printed at any time and customers who have not paid their bills will then be chased up This is the job of the Credit Control Department
