  1. In the left-panel, click Inputs to add more information and set the fields used:
    1. Select the Payment Date when the casualty (lease end) amount will be posted. The payment must occur in a month where no payment, accrual, or asset depreciation postings have been made, and must be on the same day of the month as the base rent payments. Note that the selected Payment Date is also used as the Effective Date.
    2. If required, enter a Posting Date and Document Date. If these fields are left blank, the application will use the date the batch is run.
    3. If required, select either Update IBR or Modify Contract Rate. The selected option will apply to all activation groups selected for the batch. If required, you can change the selected option for individual activation groups in the Excel file after the batch items are generated.
      • If Update IBR is selected, the application selects a new IBR based on the Effective Date and the IBR rates configured in the Nakisa AdminConsole for all activation groups selected for the batch.
      • If Modify Contract Rate is selected, enter the new contract rate in the Contract Rate field.
    4. If required, select the Use Default Casualty Amount checkbox. If this option is selected, the Casualty Amount is automatically set to the unpaid interest at the time of the selected Payment Date. If the checkbox is unselected, you must enter the Main Casualty Amount, as well as Casualty Amounts for any other accounting standards in the Alt Casualty Amount, Third Casualty Amount, and Fourth Casualty Amount fields. Note that these amounts cannot be less than the unpaid interest expense at the time of the Payment Date.
    5. Click at the top of the page. Note that you cannot leave the page until it is either saved, or reset to the previous saved version.

    Note: The entered input values apply to all activation groups in the batch. If required, these inputs can be modified for individual activation groups in the Excel file after the batch items are generated.

    Tip: In case of an error, refine the filter settings for a smaller batch.

  3. To generate batch items, click at the top of the page. All of the matching objects are listed on the Batch Items page. The batch status changes from "Draft" to "Ready".
