Adagio Tip Of The Month: Purchase Orders Prepayment

Oct 13, 2020

Question:Is there a way to create an invoice in PO prior to receiving the items (in order to pay it prior to actual receipt)?

Answer: Yes. Enter a manual check in AP and select Prepayment as the type. If you know what the invoice number is going to be, then fill that in-it will save a step.

This will credit cash and debit AP.

When you eventually receive the PO as an invoice and post it in AP it will automatically offset against the prepayment.

If you didn’t know the invoice number, you will have to match up the invoice and the prepayment via a zero dollar manual check.
