Link to Purchase Ledger

When entering invoice and credit transactions direct into the purchase ledger then you can optionally select a job record and cost code to update. If selected then, on update to the ledger, the job costing system is also updated with a ‘direct cost’ transaction and the invoiced value is added to the accumulated category value recorded on the job. A credit (or invoice adjustment) updated to job costing generates a ‘direct cost’ transaction with a negative value and reduces the category value recorded on the job.

After confirming the tax amount for each entry line of the invoice the system prompts for the job code and cost code to update, <F4-Select> is available. On input of the codes the system displays the job title and cost code title and prompts you to confirm the job/cost code selected is correct. On update of the purchase ledger the job costing system is also updated.

Purchase Ledger Sub-Contractor Accessory

When a supplier invoice relates to more than one job the usual process is to split the analysis line into entries for each job. However, in addition to the sub-contractor options available with the Sub-Contractor accessory it also adds options to split an individual analysis line over multiple jobs/cost categories.
