PayTraq supports different types of Purchases, here is a brief explanation:

  • Purchasing Goods – this invoice type is for purchasing goods (and related items) registered (or supposed to be registered) in the program.
  • Purchasing Services/Other Expenses – is a free-form of an invoice that allows adding products and services that are not registered in the program.

The document form depends on operation type.

An invoice with the Purchasing Goods operation type has the option to import shipments. Any invoice has the option to import purchase orders of the same operation type.

4. Choose a supplier. 

Start typing here the name of the supplier the invoice is from and then select one from the results. If the supplier is not on the list, then fill up the "Supplier" field with a name and a new supplier will be created (you can complete all this supplier’s details later).

5. Use an "Amounts are Tax Inclusive" check box if you suppose to enter prices that are tax included.

8. Add line items to your invoice

Add a product or service/description (in a free-form for Purchasing Services/Other Expenses types).

Enter or edit the quantity for the line item (you can enter positive or negative). A negative product quantity generates return shipment. 

Enter the price for the line item. You can apply a discount percentage to the invoice line's unit price. 

Choose a general ledger account and a tax key for this invoice line if they differ from the default ones.

The overall total amount displayed for the invoice will take into account all line items entered above and the tax keys chosen.
