It would be great if Reckon Hosted could put supplier invoices on hold, not to be paid

Or maybe just dont put them in to the system.
No, it's best to enter these transactions rather that having a bundle of loose leaf bills laying around. Another option is to create another AP account aptly named "pending AP" once they have been approved you can then move them to the main AP account.

No. If you arent going to pay them or if you cant be bothered checking before you pay them, then simply leave them out. I honestly cant see anything to be gained by having separate ledgers. Thats just confusing. You have to ask what problem are you trying to fix.

I agree Jacqui. It's important to have all invoices in the system, especially if you're lodging BAS on an accrual basis. Leaving invoices out to be entered at a later stage is not ideal. 

I disagree with the pending AP account option though. Just go through your Pay Bills screen and only choose the ones that have been approved for payment.

Of course it is. Why would you even enter bills at all if you are only going to put them there to pay them. Why wouldnt you then forget about the bills and just pay the expenses out of the cheque book? You need to work out what problem you are trying to solve. I might have already mentioned that

I'm sorry I don't quite understand what you're saying, Kevin. Were you responding to my comment?
