Purchase Order to GL Interface

ActiveApplications supports the recording of ledger transactions automatically when a purchase order is received. Check the box in the purchase order tab of the control file to create transactions automatically. This box should be checked when accrual accounting methods are used.

Once checked the transactions will be created automatically when purchase order are received.

A location used in conjunction with the item number will determine what ledger accounts are used.

The transactions can be simple or complex when posted. Usually if posting to GL from PO's is active the inventory account and a discrepancy or PO holding account are affected. When the invoice is received in AP the discrepancy account and AP account are affected. This is a simple posting from the above receipt.

ActiveApplications provides the capability to get it done and to track it in your ledger.
