Changelog

January 2023

(1) Assign approvers automatically by Tracking Project

Now you can assign approvers with your accounting software’s custom field, “Tracking Project” when using enterprise approval rules. Approvers in your accounting system will sync to Routable and get automatically assigned to the payable.

Visit Approval Rules in Settings, create a new rule, and select “Tracking Project” to assign approvers.

This update includes support for NetSuite, Sage Intacct, and QuickBooks Online, however project values map to the Customer field for QuickBooks Online. At this time, the Xero integration does not  support this field.

December 2023

(1) Always know when funds will arrive

You can now accurately see when payments sent through Routable will arrive.

November 2023

(1) Vendor tax management tools

We’ve been hard at work adding tax management functionality to the Routable platform. Recent additions and improvements include:

Tax tools center A new Tax Tools center is now available under the “Companies” drop down in the Routable dashboard. Here, you’re able to easily see all of your eligible tax vendors and any vendors whose W8/W9 you’re missing. Apply filters such as country, created date, and total amount paid to drill down to relevant vendors, then bulk request tax information from all of them with the click of a button.

And, when the time comes to export vendor 1042s and 1099s in preparation for tax filing, you can download CSV templates that allow you to make data adjustments before uploading them to your preferred E-filing system, including Tax1099 and Track1099. See how it works

Self-serve tax settings Match your team’s workflow and streamline vendor onboarding - Customers can now enable or disable tax collection. Tax collection enables customers to request tax information from their vendors when this setting is enabled. However, when the tax setting is disabled, customers will still have access to add tax forms in Routable.

Tax form entry Adding to our W8/W9 collection feature, you can now enter and upload tax forms you have collected from your vendors in Routable, allowing you to have a central hub for all the tax documents you need at year end.

Learn more →

Collect W8 via API Our API now supports the collection of W8 information from non-US vendors. Learn more →

(2) Bill import bill number filter

If you use the accounting software import flow to add your payable to Routable, you now can search for bills by bill number. To search for multiple bills, you can input a comma-separated list into the search box.

(3) Use the Routable Balance with Sage Intacct

Our Sage Intacct integration now supports the Routable Balance. Make same-day and next-day payments with your Routable Balance and see those payments reflected in Intacct.

(4) Payment reference number sync for international payments

When you make an international payment, the payment reference number will be recorded on the payment transaction in your connected accounting software.

(5) API enhancements

  • We’ve added several new webhooks letting you know about Company changes in Routable:

    • company.created 

    • company.invited 

    • company.invitation_accepted 

    • payment_method.created

    • tax_form.created

  • We’ve deprecated the item resource, in favor of payable and receivable, to more closely match the API endpoints.

  • You can now List Webhook Events directly through the API! If you need to re-fire events, want to double-check you got them all, or just view historical events, this endpoint will allow you to query and filter the list. The last 30 days of webhook data will be available through this endpoint at any given time.

September 2023

(1) Self-Serve Tax Settings

Match your team’s workflow and streamline vendor onboarding - Customers can now disable or disable tax collection. Tax collection enables customers to request tax information from their vendors when this setting is enabled. However, when the tax setting is disabled, customers will still have access to add tax forms in Routable.

(2) Same and Next Day ACH payments funded from a bank account

Routable has long supported fast ACH payments through the Routable Balance but now, our clients have the flexibility to skip the pre-funding and send their payments *even faster* with direct transfers from their bank.

Here’s how to take advantage of this new functionality:

  • When using the Routable Dashboard, simply select your bank account as the funding source instead of your Routable balance.

  • When using the Routable API, use the identifier of your bank account in the `withdraw_from_account` field in the create a payable request payload.

March product improvements

  • Routable supports configuration options for both top-level and entity-level connected Sage Intacct clients

  • Text in invoice PDFs is now selectable and can be copied in the document viewer

  • Faster CSV data exports

Bug fixes

Filtering a list by "created date" was previously challenging, as the date picker would indicate that the wrong date was selected. This has been corrected and the date picker now shows and uses the selected date for filtering.


March 2, 2023

February product improvements

  • We’ve added real-time validation when adding international vendor bank accounts.. This will reduce payment failures and will help decrease payment processing costs.

  • Expected date of arrival of micro-deposit transactions added to the relevant email notification.

  • Improved search performance when matching companies between Routable and the accounting software.

  • Business names with hyphens are now supported in Routable’s signup flow.

  • The CSV export dialog for large data exports has been updated to better guide clients through the export workflow. Previously, the need to confirm large exports in order to receive export files via email had not been clear.

  • Exported CSV files now have unique timestamps added to their filename, making it easier for users to differentiate them after extracting the exported CSV file from the ZIP archive.

  • Improved Form W-9 collection with the addition of an "Other" business type and clearer language around tax exemptions (Limited availability feature)

Bug Fixes

  • Payables export now correctly identifies the payment method for XB$ transfers

  • For accounting software-connected workspaces with Base Currency Sync enabled, we were allowing them to import vendors using a different currency which prevented them from sending payments to those vendors. We’ve updated our logic to resolve the issue.

  • We were not showing the NetSuite “Location” field on product/service line items on payables. We’ve fixed it so now the “Location” field appears on product/service line items for payables and receivables.

  • When an accounting software-connected workspace hit a rate limit error when trying to create payments, this would occasionally create a duplicate payment record. We updated our logic to prevent these duplicates.

  • When vendors toggled between sole-proprietorship and other business types in the W-9 form, the wrong TIN field could remain on screen, leading to inaccurate data. We updated the logic to ensure only the correct fields are shown.

  • Users would sometimes see a message about their CSV file being emailed when a small number of records were being exported, despite the export being delivered through the browser. The notice will now only be shown when an export cannot be delivered through the browser.


January 31, 2023

January product improvements

  • Users can now make changes to their company name when first creating a Routable workspace.

  • Users were limited to viewing 25 bank accounts but we’ve update this so now they can see all of their bank accounts

  • For workspaces with a large number of vendors, some users were seeing timeouts when trying to match vendors. We’ve optimized this call so that the timeouts no longer occur.

  • You could not save edits to Xero payables using default tax rates on line items, now you can.

  • We’ve made better use of document (PDF, PNG etc.) viewing space in Routable, making it easier than ever to view bill details.

Two more user roles are available

We’re excited to roll out two additional user roles for your Routable team members: Approver and Collaborator.

Here’s how your team can use these roles:

✅ Approver

Approvers can approve payables and receivables with limited access to view account settings. This role is useful for team members like department heads, who may need to view and approve payments without the need to code bills themselves. Approvers can: 

  • Approve payables and receivables (when added to an approval rule)

  • View payables and receivables

  • Send internal messages to team members

  • View company records

  • View limited account settings

🤝 Collaborator

Collaborators can view payables and receivables, but cannot take action on them. This role is useful for non-finance executive team members and auditors, who may need access to view payables and receivables without the need to approve or code bills. Collaborators can:

  • View payables and receivables

  • Send internal messages to team members

  • View company records

  • View limited settings
