2 Purchasing - A/P: Purpose In this unit, you will:Master the basic steps of the procurement process for purchasing items or servicesUnderstand the consequences of each step on inventory and accountingHandle issues that arise with a vendor’s delivery and billing
3 Purchasing - A/P: Business Example You purchase your warehouse goods from external vendors. Normally, you use the purchase order document to order goods. In some cases, however, you submit your order by phone and your vendor delivers the items immediately. In this case, the process modeled in the system must be as short and quick as possible.If the delivered goods do not meet your quality standards, you want to return them to your vendor. This can happen either before or after you have received the invoice.You purchase services such as web design and landscaping from vendors using purchase orders. Other services such as electricity or rent are purchased without purchase orders.

5 Purchasing Items: Process Overview System ConfigurationMaster dataPurchasingInbound logisticsWarehouse managementOutbound logisticsMarketing & SalesServiceProductionFinancial controllingPurchasing is not just about ordering and paying for pencils and paper clips. Rather, purchasing is the process of ensuring a steady stream of required materials is on the way to your company when and where you need them. As a fully integrated, end-to-end business management application, SAP Business One helps you run the purchasing process, starting with the purchase order and continuing with the rest of the purchasing documents. SAP Business One automatically captures information at each step so you always know what’s on hand in inventory as well as the up-to-the-minute financial state of your business. The real-time view helps you identify potential shortages before they happen. Precise historical information keeps track of which vendors come through for you consistently.The graphic shows the basic four-part process of ordering, receiving, and paying for goods or services.The purchase order (PO) is the document you provide to the vendor specifying the items or services you want to purchase, including agreed-to quantities and prices.The goods receipt PO is the document that denotes the delivery of goods from a vendor to a company. It is used to update the inventory quantities and values.The A/P invoice (or A/P voucher) is the document into which accounts payable enters the vendor’s invoice information and sets up the payment.The outgoing payment is the document which tells the system to send a payment to the vendor. There are, generally speaking, four ways of sending outgoing payments: cash, checks, credit cards, and bank transfers. There are also some additional country-specific payment methods. In SAP Business One, the functionality and reporting associated with processing payments are accessed through the banking module.Purchase OrderGoods Receipt POA/P InvoiceOutgoing Payment
6 Purchase Order 10 printers are currently in stock We order 5 more from our vendorFive appear on the inventory reports as ordered15 will be available to promise,Although only 10 are physically in stockPurchase Order Definition: A purchase order is a commercial document issued by a buyer to a seller specifying the items (goods or materials) or services—along with agreed-to quantities and price—that the seller will provide the buyer.Accounting and Inventory Effects: When a purchase order is added in SAP Business One, no value-based accounting changes occur. However, the order quantities are listed in inventory management. You can view items and quantities on order in various reports and windows, such as the inventory status report and the Item Master Data window. Obviously, having such real-time access to this information can play a key role in optimizing a company’s purchasing and inventory management business processes.How is the information stored in the purchase order used? Normally, when goods are received, purchase orders are matched with packing slips and vendor invoices before the invoices are paid. In SAP Business One, this process is automated: the purchase order can be linked to the goods receipt PO (information from packing slip), which then can be linked to the A/P invoice (information from vendor’s invoice), allowing information to be consistent and retained throughout the process. You never have to enter data twice.
7 Key Master Data in Purchasing: Vendor One or more control accounts for vendorsPossible transactionsAll purchasing transactionsVendorsThere are three types of business partner master records in SAP Business One: vendors, customers, and leads. Vendor data identifies who is supplying the goods and services.You use vendor master records in purchasing to handle all purchasing transactions. Accounting manages the relevant transactions in one or more control accounts.Vendor codes are alphanumeric and must not overlap with the G/L account numbers. The codes must not contain mathematical operators, since these would be misinterpreted by the SQL database. Underscores, however, are allowed.Before purchasing documents can be created, the vendor must be entered in the SAP Business One list of business partners.To locate existing vendor information, either click on the button to the right of the Vendor field in the document header or press the Tab key in the Vendor field. The List of Business Partners appears in a pop-up window.If you are authorized, you can enter new vendor information while creating a purchasing document. To do so, click on the New button on the bottom of the List of Business Partners pop-up window.If you plan to issue the vendor a check or bank transfer using the payment wizard, make sure you have defined the payment method in the vendor business partner master data record.
8 Addresses in the Purchase Order Company / WarehousePurchase OrderVendorLogistics TabShip to AddressPay to AddressIt is important to understand how the Ship to and Pay to addresses are used in the purchasing process.Ship-to address come from two places, depending on the setting chosen for the Service/Item Type field.The company ship-to address is displayed under the Logistics tab and is defined in the Administration module. This address is used for service-type purchasing documents.The warehouse ship-to address is used for purchasing documents with items. The address is taken from the warehouse associated with the first row in the document. This setting is found in Document Settings Use Warehouse Address. Warehouse addresses can be set up and changed in Setup Inventory Warehouses.Pay to address: This information is displayed under the Logistics tab and is defined in the vendor business partner master data record. Make sure the Pay to address is the one you want for a given purchase since this information prints on the check when payment is issued.Addresses can be overwritten inside a purchasing document.
9 Key Master Data in Purchasing: Items Item master fields useful In purchasingPreferred VendorManufacturer Catalog NumberPurchasing Unit of MeasureCustoms group for imported itemsTax informationIn the purchasing process, item master data identifies what is being purchased.Frequently the same items are purchased, inventoried, and sold. The information is the same; it is just used differently. This is the advantage of using an item master record which can be copied into any document in the purchasing, sales, production, MRP, inventory, and service modules.The header of the item master data record contains general information about the item, including a unique ID number assigned by the user, a description (including a description in a foreign language), and settings to determine the type of the item, the group it belongs to, the price, and the applicable price list. Checkboxes on the right indicate whether the item is kept in inventory and whether it is offered for sale or purchase (in many cases both apply). The item can be marked as a fixed asset with another checkbox.The General tab of the Item Master Data window has a mix of information about the manufacturer of the item, additional identifiers, shipping methods, and issue method.The Purchasing Data tab indicates the main vendor who sells the item, how to identify the item in a catalog, the units of measurement used for the item for purchasing purposes, and the actual size of the item. For items with a purchasing history, you can click on the chart icon on the lower left of the tab to display a graphical purchase analysis.In a purchasing document, you can locate the List of Items (goods and materials), by pressing the tab key from the Item No. field in the document’s Contents tab. From the resulting pop-up window, you can select from the list or enter new data by clicking on the New button.

When you enter a document you can choose File Save as Draft.Drafts are often used when approval is needed to create a purchase order. The document is saved as a draft, then the draft document is forwarded to an approver. Once the document is approved, the purchase order is added and a copy is sent to the vendor.You can display a list of all the document drafts. Choose either Sales - A/R Sales Reports Document Drafts or Purchasing – A/P Purchasing Reports Document Drafts.You can select all the documents that you have saved as drafts. By double-clicking a document in the list, you can display it and edit the data. If you choose Add you add the document.Draft documents remain in the system after they have been further processed.Important note: you specifically have to remove drafts that you no longer need.

You also have the option to print, fax, or export any documents you create in purchasing or sales.The layout of a printed document can be viewed on the screen. When the business transaction is entered choose File Print Preview or the print preview icon.There are two ways of printing out the documents of sales or purchasingThe document can be printed immediately when the business transaction is entered. Choose File Print or the print icon.Several documents can be printed simultaneously (all the invoices from one day, for example). Choose Purchasing – A/P Document Printing or Sales – A/R Document Printing. Documents that have already been printed can be printed again. This document printing function allows you to print many documents at once, by generating and displaying a list of documents according to the user’s specifications. The user can choose whether to print the whole list or certain documents.TB1200 Implementation and Support course covers how to design the print layout.The functionality Export to File allows you to export the documents in different types of file. When you enter the business transaction choose File ExportNotes: Install Outlook Integration to use output. Fax functionality requires specific add-on software.
12 Goods Receipt PO 10 printers are currently in stock We ordered 5 more from our vendorThe vendor delivers 5After goods receipt, 15 are in stockDefinition of a Goods Receipt PO: In SAP Business One, a goods receipt PO is created when you receive goods from a vendor. In most companies, the person in the warehouse or the office responsible for taking delivery of shipments executes the goods receipt PO. For services, the person for whom the services are rendered usually issues the document.How to create a goods receipt PO: A goods receipt PO can be created new by selecting the document name in the module menu, or it can be built from an existing purchase order. If you are basing your goods receipt PO on an existing PO, you may copy all the data contained in the PO or use the draw document wizard to select the data to copy from one or more existing Purchase orders. Even if you copy all data from an existing PO you can still adjust quantities and prices—as well as dates, vendor, and item information—before you post (add) the document.Regardless of how you create your goods receipt PO, there should be no differences between the data in the goods receipt PO and the vendor’s shipping document (packing slip) sent with the items, because the details in the vendor’s document are legally binding. If there are any discrepancies between the base PO data and the vendor’s shipping document, you should resolve them with the vendor before you post your goods receipt PO.Accounting and Inventory Impact of a Goods Receipt PO: It is essential that the quantities and prices in your goods receipt PO match the vendor’s shipping document. Unlike a purchase order, a goods receipt PO cannot be amended after it has been added to SAP Business One because it triggers both inventory and (when using perpetual inventory) accounting transactions.
13 Two options to create a follow-up document: Copy to/ Copy from Open saved document to copyAll items copied to new documentNo options available on how items are copiedHowever, you can delete items and adjust quantities after copyingEnter business partner in a new documentChoose one or multiple documents from a listDraw document wizard allows you to:customize rows and quantities copiedselect the exchange rate to usePurchasing documents build on each other. Often, a purchase order becomes a goods receipt PO that records the vendor’s delivery and finally an A/P invoice when the vendor’s bill is received.You can quickly copy a document to the next document in the sequence using the Copy To button. The original document is called a base document; the document you create from it is called a target document. Building one document from another saves time and effort. It also reduces the possibility of errors.When you copy all of a base documents items and quantities, it will be closed and you will not be able to copy it again to another document.The other method for copying a document is Copy from. The Copy From button allows you to select a base document or documents from which to create a new document. Clicking Copy From starts the draw document wizard.Often the first step in building one document from another is locating the base document you want to use. For example, goods may be delivered to a warehouse and a goods receipt PO needs to be entered. How do you find the relevant purchase order? One tool for locating such documents quickly is the Open Items List. The report shows all open documents of the type you select in the drop-down list in the upper right. You can then select the relevant purchase order, for example, and create a goods receipt with a single click on the Copy To button. When one document is built from another in this fashion, all the relevant information is copied from the base document to the new document, reducing both data entry time and errors.
14 Effects of the Goods Receipt PO 1432Once the Goods Receipt PO is added to the system it has the following consequences:1) The purchase order (base document) cannot be changed.2) The goods receipt PO creates a journal entry to increase inventory value, and therefore cannot be changed.3) The system updates the stock quantity in inventory.4) Items that have been partially or completely delivered appear in light gray in the purchase order document. When all items are received, the purchase order status changes to Closed.Note: The journal entry is created only when you run perpetual inventory, however the quantity is increased regardless of type of inventory method.
15 A/P Invoice You receive an invoice from the vendor for the 5 printers You enter an A/P invoice to reflect the vendor invoiceThe A/P invoice is the basis for payment to the vendorDefinition of an A/P invoice: An A/P invoice is entered into SAP Business One when you a receive an invoice from the vendor. It will be used to trigger a payment to the vendor.How to enter an A/P invoice: You can create an A/P invoice new by selecting the document name in the module menu or by basing it on one or more POs or goods receipt POs. If you are basing your A/P invoice on one or more existing purchasing documents, you may copy all the data contained in the PO or use the draw document wizard (see Chapter 10) to select the data to copy from one or more existing POs or goods receipt POs. Even if you copy all data from existing purchasing document(s), you can still adjust quantities and prices—as well as dates, vendor, and item information—before you post the document.Data entry tip. Use the Document Date field in the A/P invoice header to enter the vendor’s invoice date. This is important for accounting and auditing reasons as the invoice date and the posting date may differ. You may also wish to change the name of the Vendor Ref. No. field in the document header to Vendor Invoice No. This field prints on the check and allows your vendor to tie the payment to their invoice.Accounting Impact of an A/P Invoice: The posted A/P invoice generates entries in the general ledger and updates the vendor account with the amount owed to the vendor.Inventory Impact when a Goods Receipt PO is not referenced: In those cases where a vendor’s invoice arrives at the time the items are received, the resulting A/P invoice also increases inventory quantities and values.
16 Effects of the A/P Invoice 43Quantity increases only if no prior goods receipt is referenced.12Once the A/P Invoice is created in the system it can have the following consequences:1) The Goods Receipt PO increased the stock value earlier. Only if there is no goods receipt PO are the stock values updated when an A/P invoice is entered.2) The A/P invoice creates a journal entry to update the vendor’s balance to show the amount due.3) You cannot change anything in the A/P invoice that would affect the journal entry once the invoice is added to the system.4) On the goods receipt PO, items that have already been partially or completely invoiced display in light gray. If the invoice is for the full quantity on the goods receipt PO, then the goods receipt PO status changes to Closed.
17 Postings in Purchasing Process for Inventory Items Item Category:Inventory ItemSales ItemPurchased ItemFixed AssetsVendor100Allocation Acc.Allocation Acc.Stock Acc.100100When you buy inventory items, the system creates the following journal entries:The goods receipt PO creates a journal entry that posts the value of the received goods to the debit side of the stock account and to the credit side of an allocation costs account. The stock account and the allocation costs account are retrieved from the Inventory Account field and the Allocation Account field on the Inventory Data tab of the item master record.The A/P invoice creates a journal entry that posts the invoiced amount to the debit side of the allocation costs account and to the credit side of the vendor account. The allocation costs account is retrieved from the Allocation Account field on the Inventory tab of the item master record.You need the allocation costs account to check if the goods receipts PO and the A/P invoices match. You need to reconcile this account on a regular basis.If you directly post the A/P invoice without first creating a goods receipt PO, the postings to the allocation costs account are omitted.To post a purchase order, choose Purchasing – A/P Purchase Order.To post a goods receipt PO, choose Purchasing – A/P Goods Receipt PO.To post an A/P invoice, choose Purchasing – A/P A/P Invoice.This graphic does not cover tax postings or postings of additional revenues and expenses. The purchase order document is not relevant for accounting.
18 Document Flow in Purchasing 123Warehouse (Quantity)General Ledger (Value)After a document has been added, you can navigate from a document to preceding and follow-up documents by using the Base Document and Target Document icons.Now that we have finished the first three steps in the procurement process for items, let’s review what happens when each document is added.1) Purchase Order: When you enter a purchase order, no value-based changes are posted in Accounting. However, the order quantities are listed in inventory management. You can view the ordered quantities in various reports and windows such as the inventory status report and the item master data window.2) Goods Receipt Purchase Order: When you enter a goods receipt PO, the goods are accepted into the warehouse and the quantities are updated. If your company runs a continuous stock system, SAP Business One creates the relevant postings to update the stock values as well.3) Accounts Payable Invoice: When an incoming invoice is posted, the vendor account is updated in Accounting.If a goods receipt PO is not referenced by the A/P, the stocks also increase when the invoice is posted.
19 Payment Processing We owe the vendor for 5 printers An A/P invoice has been entered for the amount owedYou create an Outgoing Payment according to payment termsThe journal entry:Reduces cash (credit)Decreases the amount owed to the vendorAfter you have entered an A/P invoice, the final step in the Purchasing-A/P process is to trigger the payment to the vendor.The outgoing payment document can be created for the following payment means:cashcheckcredit cardbank transferbill of exchangeOnce the outgoing payment is added, an appropriate journal entry is created. The journal entry reduces the vendor’s balance.When creating an outgoing payment to clear (fully or partially) a specific document or transaction, an internal reconciliation automatically takes place.Multiple outgoing payments can be created together by the Payment Wizard. Payment wizard runs cover A/P and A/R documents and transactions that are not fully paid, credited, or reconciled, as well as unreconciled/allocated payments on account.When creating outgoing payments, either individually or with the Payment Wizard, you can also partially pay invoices.Payment processing is considered to be part of the Banking Module in SAP Business One.
20 Purchasing Reports Purchase Analysis Open Items List Vendor Liabilities AgingDrag & RelatePurchase Analysis: To manage a business efficiently, you require detailed information about the purchasing volume made from your vendors. You must be able to determine which products you purchase the most, and which of your purchasing employees attains the best deals. This information is provided by the purchase analysis and is made clearer with a graphical display.Open Items List: This report allows the user to view open sales and purchasing documents. Using this report gives you an accurate picture regarding the status of documents in the system, only documents with Open status appear in this report. Documents that were partially copied to target document also appear in this report. You can also display the documents from the report.Vendor Liabilities Aging: When processing this report, you can also display the detailed information for each vendor in the row. In the detailed view, the documents are displayed together with the respective liabilities. The report provides the size of the vendor liability and the time that the debt has remained unpaid.Drag & Relate: The Drag & Relate menu is a tab page in the SAP Business One Main Menu. To switch from the Modules menu to the Drag & Relate menu, choose the Drag & Relate tab. Drag & Relate is an extensive information system that can be used to display information about the business processes quickly and easily. Drag & Relate is an interactive tool that can be used in parallel to regular working methods. The user-friendly interface offers optimum support for finding important information quickly. The Drag & Relate tool uses pre-defined queries in order to generate reports in the system, and searches both in reports and in the master data, such as G/L Accounts and Business Partners. Reports can be filtered using the Filter function.

25 Purchasing Services – Process Overview Purchase OrderA/P InvoiceOutgoing PaymentLet us say you need to buy landscaping, training or other non-physical purchases. In those cases, you can still use purchase orders and A/P invoices. You have two options for purchasing services: you can describe a service in the row or use a “service” item that you have created.If you purchase a service frequently and the price is pre-set with the vendor, an item can be very useful because it allows you track the quantities.When purchasing services, you may wish to begin with a purchase order which describes the service being purchased, the price agreed to, and the G/L account associated with the service. The purchase order is optional. The advantage of using a purchase order is that it gives you a document in which to set the conditions and price for the service.Generally you discuss the scope of the project and expected price with the vendor and at that point the purchase order is created with the details of the agreement.When the vendor receives the purchase order, they confirm the agreement and dates are set for them to perform the service.The goods receipt PO document is generally not used for purchasing services. Usually, this step occurs outside the system.After the service is received and the vendor sends an invoice, an A/P invoice is entered into the system.Finally, an outgoing payment is created to pay the vendor.
26 Item / Service TypeDocumentIn Purchasing (and sales) you can set your documents as either Item type or Service type.ServiceCustomerC00001NameSmithDescriptionG/L AccountPriceDocumentItemCustomerC00001NameSmithItem No.DescriptionQuantityPriceA sales or purchasing document can include either pre-defined items from master data or descriptions of services which are directly entered in its rows. The document cannot include both.On the Contents tab of Sales and Purchasing documents, you can set the Item/Service Type to either Item or Service.This setting applies to the entire document, and you cannot change it once you have saved the document.The table view on the Content tab page is different for each option.Services as a service in the document: You only use the Service option in SAP Business One to buy or sell a service that does not have a master record.Services as an item in the document: Entering services as items has several advantages:You can enter items and services in the same documentYou can define master data for the service, such as prices, sales quantities, and so onYou can use the usual sales analyses and evaluation reports for servicesTypically, creating a service as an item is done more frequently for selling services, than for purchasing services.

Use the following steps to create an A/P invoice without referencing a purchase order:Refer to the physical vendor invoice to create a service invoice.Enter the vendor number to bring in data from the vendor master record.Then enter the vendor invoice number and the vendor invoice date.Verify the correct setting exists in order to enter a description, the general ledger account, and of course the amount due.When you save the invoice, SAP Business One performs a duplicate invoice number check for the vendor. The system alerts you if the vendor invoice number is found so you can research the invoice. This function helps us to avoid duplicate payments.When the system saves the invoice, the value updates the amount due to the vendor, the related expense account, and the related general ledger control account at the same time.
28 Postings in Purchasing Process for Non-Inventory Items Item Category:Purchased ItemFixed AssetsInventory ItemSales ItemExpenses Account EU Expenses Acc. Foreign Expenses Acc.Vendor100100As mentioned before, services can be set up as items to make it possible to track purchases. Another common type of non-inventory item is an item which represents an expense purchase, such as office supplies.When you buy items that are directly consumed and not stored in inventory, the system does not trigger a posting for the goods receipt PO even if you create one.The A/P invoice amount is posted on the debit side of an expense account because it goes directly into expenses. The credit side is posted on the vendor account. Although the item is not an inventory item, the Inventory data tab does not disappear from the item master record because the system needs it for the G/L account determination. The expenses account is retrieved from the default warehouse on the Inventory tab of the item master record.If the vendor is located in the same country, the account from the Expenses Account field is used.If the vendor is located in an EU country, the account from the EU Expenses Account field is used.If the vendor is located in a non-EU foreign country, the account from the Foreign Expenses Account field is used.This graphic does not cover tax postings or postings of additional revenues and expenses.
30 Purchasing Services: Topic Summary Key points from this topic:The main documents used in purchasing services are:Purchase orderA/P invoiceOutgoing paymentServices can be represented by a description in a service type document or represented as an item in an item type document.For services such as rent or utilities, typically an A/P invoice is created without a purchase order.

A vendor might send a different item than was originally ordered. In these circumstances you can adjust the goods receipt PO accordingly to reflect the actual amount received.1) If you refer to a purchase order document when you enter a goods receipt, you can increase (over delivery) the copied quantity.2) You can also add additional items in the goods receipt.3) If you refer to a purchase order document when you enter a goods receipt, you can reduce the copied quantity. This is a partial delivery.4) You can create a second partial delivery.If you do not expect to receive any additional deliveries after the partial delivery, you should close the purchase order so that the open purchase order quantity can be reduced (choose Data Close or right mouse-click Close). The Status of the purchase order will change to Closed. It is only possible to manually close a document with open status that has been partially received or not received. The purchase order is not deleted so you can still display or duplicate the document, but it is no longer available for copying to another document, such as a goods receipt, goods return or A/P invoice.If a purchase order will never be received, then you should cancel the purchase order. You can cancel a purchase order that has never been copied or one that has been partially copied. As with the status Closed, a Canceled purchase order is not deleted. You can still display or duplicate the document, but it cannot be copied to another document.

If your company runs a continuous stock system, SAP Business One creates the relevant postings to update the stock values as well.To reverse a specific Goods Receipt PO, create the goods returns based on it, provided that an A/P Invoice has not yet been created for that Goods Receipt.If you have already entered an A/P Invoice for the transaction, use the A/P Credit Memo function to carry out quantity and value-based corrections in the system.When you return goods to a vendor, goods cannot be received again with reference to the existing documents. When the goods are delivered again, you can either enter a delivery without a reference to a purchase order in the system, or duplicate one of the preceding documents.Beginning with release 8.8, when a Goods Return is created without being based on a previous document, the value of a moving average item is the current item cost calculated for the item and not the unit price entered in the goods return document.

The credit memo then updates the stock quantities and corrects the values in accounting.You can create a credit memo using services to correct amounts without affecting inventory.When you create the credit memo, the system finds the same accounts that were used to post the invoice and posts a negative value to them.It is a requirement in certain jurisdictions, e.g. Spain, that sales and purchase credit analysis is shown separately in the Profit & Loss account to the normal sales and purchase accounts. Account determination functionality is extended to determine which Profit & Loss accounts are updated on the posting of sales and purchase credit notes. This functionality allows a user to specify different posting accounts for sales revenue and sales credits.
