AP Check Inquires

How to tell where my voucher is in the approval process using PeopleSoft Production:

  1. Go to Accounts Payable>Vouchers>Add/Update>Regular Entry
  2. Enter Business Unit and Voucher ID
  3. Scroll down and click "Search"
  4. Click on the Approval History hyperlink in the middle of the page

  1. View the approvals
  2. If Project Manager Approval (for Grants Only), Fiscal Reviewer Approval, and Accounting Office Approval all have a green checkmark and say "Approved", the voucher has been approved and will be paid.  You must next research payment terms to understand when payment will be made.  Go to step 7 below to learn how.
  3. To research when a voucher will be paid: From the Summary Tab in step 4, click on the "Payments" tab.  See image below.

     
  4. You will come to a screen similar to the one below.  Look at the "Invoice Date", "Pay Terms", "Net Due", and "Scheduled Due" fields.  Payments will will process as follows:
    1. If the payment is by ACH, assuming Payment Terms are 0 days, payment will be made on the same night following the last approval, provided the last approval was completed by 5:00pm CST or before.  If last approval was after the 5:00pm CST cufoff, the ACH will take place the following evening.  If Payment Terms are a number greater than or equal to 1, that refers to the amount of days after the Invoice Date before the Net Due date.  The Net Due Date is when the Invoice is Due.  The Scheduled Due Date is the date payment will be made.

      Example 1: If your voucher has been fully approved by 5:00pm CST, has an Invoice Date of 7/1/15, Pay Terms of 0, has a Net Due date of 7/1/15, and a Scheduled Due date of 7/1/15, payment will be made on the evening of 7/1/15.
      Example 2: If your voucher has been fully approved after 5:00pm CST, has an Invoice Date of 7/1/15, Pay Terms of 0, has a Net Due date of 7/1/15, and a Scheduled Due date of 7/2/15, payment will be made on the evening of 7/2/15.
      Example 3: If your voucher has been fully approved by 5:00pm CST, has an Invoice Date of 7/1/15, Pay Terms of 15, has a Net Due date of 7/15/15, and a Scheduled Due date of 7/15/15, payment will be made on the evening of 7/15/15.
       

    2. If the payments is by check, assuming Payment Terms are 0 days, payment will be made on the first Tuesday immediately following last approval, provided the last approval was completed by 5:00pm CST or before.   If last approval was after the 5:00pm CST cutoff on a Tuesday, the check will be cut the following Tuesday.  If Payment Terms are a number greater than or equal to 1, that refers to the amount of days after the Invoice date before the Net Due date.  The Net Due Date is when the Invoice is Due.  The Scheduled Due Date is the date payment will be made.   Net Due Date will not always match the Scheduled Due date because checks are cut every Tuesday regardless of Net Due Date.  PeopleSoft will automatically look at Invoice date plus number of Pay Terms days to arrive at the Net Due Date.  Then it will select the Tuesday immediately before the Net Due Date as the Scheduled Due date for the check to be cut.

      Example 4: If your voucher has been fully approved by 5:00pm CST, has an Invoice Date of 7/1/15, Pay Terms of 0, has a Net Due date of 7/1/15, and a Scheduled Due date of 7/7/15, payment will be made on the evening of 7/7/15 as 7/7/15 is the first Tuesday after all approval have taken place.
      Example 5: If your voucher has been fully approved, has an Invoice Date of 7/1/15, Pay Terms of 15, has a Net Due date of 7/15/15, and a Scheduled Due date of 7/14/15, payment will be made on the evening of 7/14/15 as that is the first Tuesday before the Net Due date.
