Enter Purchase Transactions

Purchasing transactions encompass the full range of transactions that can be entered against a purchase order.  Purchase transactions include the following types of transactions:

  • Receipt:  Receiving against a PO line will update the project cost, and accrue the amount payable to the vendor.  
  • Invoice: Invoicing against a PO receipt, reduces the accrual and increase the amount payable to the vendor.  Invoices integrate directly to the back-office Accounts Payable system.
  • Receipt / Invoice:  Receipt / Invoice can handle both the receipt and invoice in one transaction.  It will update the project as well as directly increase the amount payable to the vendor.  Receipt / Invoices integrate to the back-office Accounts Payable system.
  • Return:  a Return will reverse the Receipt transaction.  
  • Return w/ Credit:  Return w/ Credit reverse Invoices and will integrate directly to the back-office Accounts Payable system as a credit memo.
