  • Fixed bug where expired direct debit variations cancelled direct debits based on the repayment schedule.

  • New Fields to record Credit Bureau scoring information against a loan at the time of settlement.
  • Fixed
    bug in Receipt Allocation Report which didn't pick up if an account had

    to be printed seemed correct, the actual letters printed included a
    letter for the ROI sub account.  So for ROI accounts with sub accounts
    the wizard was printing two letters. For non ROI - sub accounts the
    wizard was only printing a single letter.  This caused the counters to
