Create a Supplier Record


Press the Purchases menu tab and then choose the Supplier details button.

If this is the first time you have entered a supplier, the screen will be blank. In future when you open this screen, it will show the details of your most recently viewed supplier. Click on the New button to bring up a new supplier details form.

Notes on completing the form: Only the Code and Name are compulsory fields, the rest are optional. The first field you need to enter is Code. The code needs to be unique to each supplier, as some of your customers may have the same name. You can use up to 20 digits (letters and numbers).

Fill in the company Name. Enter the company Address and Postcode. Select the Country from the drop down menu. Enter the Phone and Fax number. Enter the Email address, the Contact, and Salutation (the name of the person any emails should be addressed to). If desired, enter a Default nominal (GL) code if most of the orders from this supplier are for the same type of product or service. If required, you can always overtype it on an individual invoice. Enter the VAT/ tax number. Enter the Default VAT/ tax code if desired. You can always overtype it on an individual invoice if you need to. Enter the Terms (number of days until payment is due) or tick the end of month (EOM) box if required. Enter the Bank sort code and Bank account no. You can put a supplier account On hold using the drop down box. You can use the Notes field for your own records.

Press Save. You can change any of the details at a later date.

Press the Purchases menu tab and then the Invoices received button.

If required, choose the correct supplier in the drop down Search box. It will default to the last viewed one.

When you have the right supplier, click on the New invoice button.

Fill in the Delivery date and Invoice date. If you put a full-stop [.] and press tab in Delivery date it will default to todays date and automatically fill in the other two fields. The software will supply the settle date based on the terms you input for this supplier record. You can overtype any of these dates if you need to.

The Deliver to and Their ref fields are optional. There is also a Debit note field if you need it. The software will complete the Paid field once the invoice has been paid.

Click on New line to enter the line items on the invoice.

Enter the Details followed by the Quantity and Price. The Net will be automatically worked out.

The software then calculates the correct Net figure and completes the rest of the line for you.
