Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Use the creditors invoice with PO (purchase order) for ALL purchase order receipts. A creditors invoice cannot be entered prior to receipt unless this creditor has been flagged as "PO invoice no receipt"


AP Creditors Purchase invoice:

Job Invoice:

Job invoice is used to record the a creditors invoice against a particular delivery. The delivery was recorded using the purchase receipt window.

If the invoice value is different from the purchase order value an adjustment to WIP will be recorded by adjusting the purchases field in JC.JOB, WO and COST.CENTER.DETAILS files. For multiple invoices all the difference will be posted on the first invoice processed for a delivery. Any subsequent invoices will adjust WIP for the full invoice amount.

A JCTRANS record for the difference in value is also created which will be posted to the general ledger via GL POSTING routine.

If multiple invoices are to be recorded against a single delivery than a zero value receipt must be entered so that the invoice is recorded against a purchase receipt.

Stock Invoice:

Use this invoice window to process a creditors invoice for which stock items were purchased on a purchase order.

The invoice will be raised against the selected purchase order.

It is assumed that freight will be amortized over the the stock received such that the last in cost will also include the freight.

N.B. The creditors invoice also update the last in cost in the inventory file.

The transaction created has the following algorithm.

 Debit                                Credit

 CREDITORS                        INV.AMT
