The "Payout to Reconciliation Automation for NetSuite" integration app automates the cash reconciliation process. The app downloads the settlement transactions from the Braintree transaction API to match the outstanding payments and refunds. If you're manually reconciling the transactions by creating deposit records in NetSuite and then moving funds around, the integration app automates the process for you. This also helps you to track and accurately match the balance in the accounting systems with the balance in the Braintree statement. With the "Payout to Reconciliation Automation for NetSuite" integration app, you can:
- Automatically request for the Braintree transactions.
- Process multiple transactions reports in one run.
- Apply the undeposited transactions and move them to the bank account.
- Report transactions that are causing discrepancies and unsettled amounts.
- Delay the reconciling process for a certain window with the Lag to bring payout-related records setting.
The Braintree transactions to NetSuite deposit flow get the transaction records from Braintree Transaction API with the transaction status settled. This scheduled flow then creates bank deposits in NetSuite.
Note: If you run the flow for the first time, select a custom date which is the start date and the current date will be the end date. From the next flow run, the flow syncs the data in the “delta flow” format.
For each Braintree transaction whose,
- If the transaction type is a payment, the flow looks for a cash sale, payment, or customer deposit that matches with Braintree transaction ID mentioned in the flow mappings.
- If the transaction type is a refund, the flow looks for a cash refund or customer refund that matches with Braintree transaction ID mentioned in the flow mappings.
- While processing the transactions, If duplicate transaction records are available with matching criteria, the first available match is considered.
- The flow doesn't create a,
- payment against invoices
- refunds against credit memo
- NetSuite limitation: A deposit is created in NetSuite with a maximum of 2000 Braintree transactions. If the number of transactions in the payout record is more than 2000, multiple deposits are created in NetSuite. If a payout has 2500 transactions, two deposits are created in NetSuite, one deposit with 2000 transactions, and another with 500 transactions.
A custom record “Celigo Payout Variance Transaction” is created in NetSuite for all the variance transactions linked to the NetSuite deposit. You can select an account to track your variances separately in the NetSuite GL account to track variance setting. A variance transaction is created in the following scenarios:
- If the NetSuite transaction amount value does not match with the Braintree transaction value, a variance transaction with the type “Amount Mismatch” is created in NetSuite.
- If no transaction is found, a variance transaction with the type “Missing Transaction” is created in NetSuite.
