10 Performing Final Settlements

This chapter contains the following topics:

10.1 Understanding Final Settlements

The last step is processing the final settlement for the contract harvest. Typically, the settlement process is a multistep process that is performed by multiple people or roles and consists of these steps:

Figure 10-1 Final settlements process

Description of Figure 10-1 follows
Description of ''Figure 10-1 Final settlements process''

In preparation of the final settlement, you perform a final settlement review, which includes reviewing all harvest receipts, assessments and donations, and all vouchers that are ready for final payment.

At final review, you revise or add assessments or donations and generate vouchers for the payee amounts that have not yet been paid on the contract.

Ensure that the harvest record is at a complete status so that when your final review is complete, you can generate final vouchers for your payees and issue final payments. After you generate final vouchers for payees and the remaining amount is zero, the system adds a voucher line item for the assessments and donations so that they can be paid.

When the remaining amount is zero, print a final settlement statement to send to the grower. The Final Settlement Statement (R40G400) shows all transactions that were applied throughout the growing cycle, including advance and interim payments, proceed payments, adjustments, bonuses, penalties, and the final settlement amount, which shows the assessments, donations and final payments that are due.

You use the Final Settlement program (P40G300) to review transactions that have been paid and transactions that have not yet been paid for a contract harvest. The final settlement is your last opportunity to revise or add assessments and donations and change payment due dates or amounts.

10.3.5.1 Receipt Summary Averages

The fields in this area of the Settlement By Harvest Block form show the base and final prices for a contract harvest, penalty and bonus amounts, quantity received and quantity to pay, manual adjustments, item related to the harvest, and the gross amount.

Penalties and Bonus

Displays amounts for penalties and bonuses, which are often affected by quality test results.

Manual Adjustments

Displays the total amount for manual adjustments that are not associated with the contract price. This amount reflects the adjustments that you entered on the Price History form when you conducted the receipt review.

Gross Amount

Displays the total receipt amount.

10.3.5.2 Assessments

The fields in this area of the Settlement By Harvest Block form show amounts due for individual assessments and donations.

10.3.5.3 Unlabeled Fields

The fields in this area of the Settlement By Harvest Block form show the currency code of the contract, total amount of assessments, net payment, amount paid-to-date, pay on proceeds paid amount, and the remaining amount.

Total Assessments

Displays the total amount due for the assessments and donations that appear in the Assessments area of the form.

Net Payment

Displays the payment amount that has been issued to growers and other payees. This amount includes assessments and donations.

Formula: Gross Amount + or − Assessments and Donations = Net Payment

Amount Paid to Date

Displays the total amount paid to date. This amount is the cumulative total of the amounts that appear in the Amount Paid to Date field in the voucher detail area of the form.

Pay on Proceeds Paid Amount

Displays the portion of the amount paid to date total that was paid through proceed payments processing.

Remaining Amount

Displays the remaining amount owed on the contract.

10.5 Changing Voucher Due Dates and Amounts

This section provides an overview of voucher changes and discusses how to change a voucher due date and amount.

10.5.1 Understanding Voucher Changes

During the final settlement, you can:

  • Change the amount due or the due date on a voucher.

  • Deselect a voucher.

If you change the amount due on a voucher and create a partial payment, the remaining amount of the voucher continues to appear on the Settlement By Harvest Block form until it is fully paid. Similarly, if you change the due date or deselect a voucher to prevent it from being paid, the voucher continues to appear on the form until it is fully paid.

10.6 Generating Vouchers for Final Payments

This section provides an overview of vouchers for final payments and discusses how to generate a voucher for a final payment.

10.6.1 Understanding Vouchers for Final Payments

To generate vouchers for final payments, these conditions must exist:

  • The harvest status must be complete.

  • A GL distribution account must be assigned to the prepayment processing option in Standard Voucher Entry (P0411).

  • A currency code must be assigned to the payee record if multicurrency processing is set up.

  • The due date rule, which is assigned to the payment term on the payee payment schedule, must be based on total receipts (TR).

When you click the Generate Voucher button on the Settlement by Harvest Block form, the system:

  • Creates prepayment vouchers for final payments that are due.

    You can put these vouchers on hold, if necessary.

  • Creates prepayment vouchers for partial payments if you pay only part of the amount due to a payee.

  • Marks the payee record as paid if the full amount for the payee on the contract is paid.

  • If the remaining amount due on the contract is zero, the system:

    • Processes three-way voucher match for all receipts.

      This closes out the purchase orders.

    • Adds a voucher line item for assessments and donations.

      You must create payments for these assessments and donations.

  • Updates the harvest status to closed if a processing option is set accordingly.

  • Marks the contract harvest as paid.

Note:

If the remaining amount due on the contract is not zero, the remaining amounts that are owed to growers and payees continue to appear on the Settlement By Harvest Block form until they are paid. The final settlement is not complete until the remaining amount due is zero and all transactions have been processed.

Generate Voucher

Click the Generate Voucher button.

When you click this button, the system creates prepayment vouchers for final payments due. If the remaining amount on the settlement is zero, the system also creates voucher matches for assessments and donations.

10.7 Creating Final Payments

This section provides an overview of final payments and discusses how to create a final payment.

10.7.1 Understanding Final Payments

After you generate vouchers for final payments, the next step is to create the payments using either the Manual Payment program (P0413M) or the Automatic Payment program (R04570). These are the same programs that you use to create other types of payments. No special processing is required to create the final payments.

These programs include these fields, which are specifically used for contracts: Contract Code, Block Code, Harvest Period, Harvest Suffix, Contract ID, and Harvest ID.

10.8 Printing Final Settlement Statements

This section provides an overview of final settlement statements and discusses how to:

  • Print the Final Settlement Statement.

  • Set data selection for the Final Settlement Statement.

10.8.1 Understanding Final Settlement Statements

When the final settlement is complete and the contract harvest is closed, you should print the Final Settlement Statement and send it to the grower. The Final Settlement Statement shows all of the transactions for the harvest period, including the final payments.

The information that appears on the Final Settlement Statement is the same information that appears on the Settlement By Harvest Block form, with these exceptions:

  • The Final Settlement Statement report shows the payment schedule from the contract harvest record.

    This includes the distribution date, delivery percent, days add, months add, fixed days, and percent of split, from the payment schedule and the based on code from the advanced payment term.

  • The Final Settlement Statement does not show the account number that appears on the Settlement By Harvest Block form, because that is needed for internal purposes only.

Many of the fields that appear on the Final Settlement Statement are described in another task.

See Reviewing Final Settlements.

Note:

You can print the Final Settlement Statement report throughout the growing cycle to review a "snapshot" of the transactions at a certain point in time. For example, you might print the Final Settlement Statement and send it with an advance or interim payment to a grower.

10.8.2 Printing the Final Settlement Statement

Select Periodic Settlement Processing, Report (G40G2211), Final Settlement Statement.

10.8.3 Setting Data Selection for Final Settlement Statement

No processing options exist for the Final Settlement Statement report. Use the data selection to identify the contract code, block code, and harvest period to include on the Final Settlement Statement.

10.9 Releasing and Closing Out Prepayment Vouchers

This section provides an overview of prepayment vouchers and lists the forms that are used to release and close out prepayment vouchers.

10.9.1 Understanding Prepayment Vouchers

When the remaining settlement amount equals zero and you generate vouchers for final payments, the system automatically generates a voucher that equals the total of the advance, interim, and final payments on the contract. This voucher is used to close out the purchase order by matching the voucher pay items to the purchase order and purchase order receipt lines. This is considered a three-way matched voucher.

Previously, when you created vouchers for advance and interim payments, the system generated prepayment vouchers (in a negative amount) and placed them on hold. It also generated prepayment vouchers when you created vouchers for final payments and placed them on hold as well. To close out your negative prepayment vouchers you must release these prepayment vouchers from hold. Then you must create a payment that includes your negative prepayment vouchers and your three-way matched voucher. The difference between these vouchers must net to zero.

To create zero amount payments automatically to close out prepayment, you use the Create Payment Control Groups program (R04570) on the Automatic Payment Processing menu (G0413).
