Key Fields within the report
ParentPay generates reports both live on screen or in a file that opens in Excel. Below is a list of the key fields that can be reported on:
Authorised v Processed transactions
Authorised: The bank has allowed the payment to be accepted, the time/date recorded for this transaction will coincide with the time the parent made the payment
Processed: After midnight all Authorised payments are sent to the banking system to be settled. This time/date does not coincide with the time the transaction took place. All payments (provided there are no problems) in a processed batch will arrive in your bank about 3/4 days later, this will vary from bank to bank.
