In this recipe, we will assume that the supplier has sent in an invoice for four paper widgets at $75 each for purchase order number 6059. We have only received five paper widgets and we have previously been billed for two paper widgets. This should generate two system holds when we try to validate the invoice:
Let's also assume that the supplier has not submitted all the documents required, for example, insurance certificates and so on. We will place a manual hold on the invoice to reflect this. We will also look at how to resolve the holds.
Let's create a standard invoice and match it to the purchase order.
