Sage Intacct
R3 2023

Percipient Sage Intacct Lead Consultant, Stephen Little, shares his highlights of what you can expect from Sage Intacct’s third software update for 2023 (R3 2023).

What’s new in the latest release?

Sage Intacct Accounts Payable
Announcing supplier approval

This idea came from you!

Manage your supplier approval process within Sage Intacct, ensuring supplier records are accurate before the information is used in accounts payable and purchasing transactions.

Users with supplier approval permissions can review new suppliers and update existing supplier records. While a supplier record is pending approval, new accounts payable and purchasing transactions for that supplier can be saved as drafts but cannot be posted. After the supplier is approved, the transactions can be posted.

How it works


Sage Intacct Purchasing
Introducing match tolerances for purchasing transactions

Take control of outgoing payments and pay the correct amount for what you ordered.

With match tolerances, Sage Intacct automatically compares the quantities and unit prices that appear on purchase transactions. For example, if your workflow converts purchase orders to vendor invoices, Sage Intacct will compare the quantities and unit prices between the two transactions. This comparison verifies that the quantity and unit price details match the purchase order, PO receipt, and vendor invoice.

Benefits of tolerance matching for your business controls:

  • It reduces the risk of fraud and financial loss by preventing the reimbursement of unauthorised purchases
  • It identifies frequent mistakes on receipts and vendor invoices which can be a sign of a broader business issue

Sage Intacct Accounts Receivable
Track payments with document sequencing

Now you can track payments more easily with document sequencing for Sage Intacct accounts receivable payments. This allows you to refer to specific posted payments and helps with payment tracking and reconciliation.

For example, if you have a posted payment that was applied to multiple invoices and adjustments, you can run a custom report based on the payment ID to see which transactions the payment was applied to.

Sage Intacct Accounts Receivable
Apply payments from the invoices list in a multi-currency company

For multi-currency companies, you can now apply payments for individual invoices directly from your invoices list.

AR Payments from Invoices List 1

You can apply payment for an invoice using the apply payment link when the invoice has a state of ‘posted’ and meets the following conditions:

  • The invoice was created at the same entity level in which you are viewing the invoices list
  • The amount is a positive amount

When you select ‘apply payment’ for an invoice, a receive payment page opens and prompts you for payment information, such as payment method and amount. You can apply the payment to a single invoice or add more invoices to the list.

How it works

Sage Intacct Accounts Receivable
Drill down to invoice details from bill back bills

If your company uses inter-entity bill back, now you can drill into AR sales invoice details directly from an AP purchase invoice that was created with bill back. You can view the corresponding inter-entity AR sales invoice with just one click.

Sage Intacct Time & Expenses
Time and expenses now support bank file payments

Time and Expenses streamlines your company’s expense reporting, approval, and reimbursement process. Employees can enter expense reports in Sage Intacct, which are then automatically routed to supervisors for approval. Supervisors receive an email notification when their employees submit an expense report.

After an expense report is approved, you can select the employee expenses to reimburse and generate the bank file.

How it works

Sage Intacct for Non-Profit
Funds hidden from entity navigation

If your company uses the non-profit Quickstart template, you can now hide entities that are funds from entity selection dropdown lists. Sage Intacct has added a ‘Traditional Fund Accounting’ option to the Company information > Accounting tab. Selecting this option gives you the ability to designate an entity as a fund on the entity information page.
