I do apologise if this has been covered elsewhere but getting in a real pickle about how to allocate part of an invoice to a supplier to one of my customers. I have entered the original purchase under General Purchases and I now need to show in the project section that the customer has purchased some of the original purchase. I thought I could rebill but this only raises an invoice to my customer who has already been invoiced at the outset. Obviously I would like to show the purchase of the goods by my customer to show as a credit on the general purchase tab how can I do this.
With “General Purchases”, I wouldn’t necessarily worry about linking a customers invoice to the suppliers invoice in terms of using the same nominal. As General Purchases (5000) is a Cost of Sales code (5000-5999), it’s generally accepted that these were used to general the sales invoices (in the 4000-4999 nominal code range). Have you been advised any different to this?
However, we completely understand that sometimes you wish to link them for reporting purposes which is why we introduced the project tagging. This would allow you to link both invoices to a tag so you can see profit and loss for that particular “project” for example (I put project in quotation marks because the tags are flexible enough to be used for more than just projects).
