Compliant with SA Legislation

Pastel Partner, and the new Pastel Approved Stationery range, automatically caters for the customer VAT number field required by SARS (South African Revenue Services) with effect from March 2005.


Pastel Partner’s Automatic Cheque and Remittance Printing facility makes paying your suppliers a simple task. Select a range of suppliers and the payment date. Pastel displays any invoices due for payment in a table. You can edit payment amounts or choose not to pay specific invoices. Pastel automatically generates payments and prints the remittance and cheque for each supplier. In addition, Pastel can automatically incorporate settlement discounts for early payment terms.


Pastel’s flexible customer account setup allows you to configure parameters per customer. For example you can set individual trading and settlement terms, select the e-mail and/ or print option for invoices and statements. Each customer can have multiple delivery addresses and user-defined fields. Create as many customers as you need – Pastel’s high performance database won’t slow you down as your customer base grows.

General Ledger

Create up to 9999 accounts, numbering from 0001 to 9999. Amongst other information, Pastel Partner stores the account number, description and period balances and gives you the ability to further divide a main account into 999 sub accounts. Pastel Partner stores the following budgets: Current Budgets, Next Year Budgets, Last Year Budgets – per General Ledger account, per period.

Period 13 Processing

Pastel allows you to use the 13th period to enter next year transactions. When you process the Year-End, the system transfers all period 13 transactions into the first period of the next year.


The General Ledger stores 2 years of data. Accounting periods can however be ‘blocked’, preventing transactions being processed to those periods which have been ‘closed’. Pastel Partner gives you the flexibility of being either period or date driven.


Pastel allows you to enter invoices in a logical and intuitive manner. Save time, ensure accuracy and control back orders by linking quotations and sales orders.

Forms Designer

The Forms Designer interface makes it easy to customise stationery layouts of documents such as invoices, quotes, orders and labels. And you can customise forms for the PDF documents that you e-mail.

PDF Printing and E-mailing

This standard feature allows e-mailing of documents such as statements, invoices, orders and quotations in PDF and HTML format. Each document layout has a corresponding PDF layout. The e-mail screen allows you to cc and bcc recipients and contacts from Outlook. Seamless integration of these elements makes communicating with your customers and suppliers easy. The body text limit for e-mails has increased and additional files can be attached.

Microsoft® Office Integration

Pastel enables you to integrate your general ledger, customer, and supplier data with Microsoft® Office® and allows you to export customer and supplier contact information into Outlook. The new ‘Create Letters’ and ‘Labels Assistant’ allows users to easily set up mail merge documents and labels through Microsoft Word. The assistant automatically creates the required data sources and links for mail merges.
