Creating a single bill from multiple purchase orders

Hi

 

We import product by container and each container is made up of multiple purchase orders. Is there a way to combine line items from multiple purchase orders into one bill that reflects the contents of the container?

 

I know that I can create a single invoice from multiple sales orders on the sales side, but need to understand if the same applies on the purchasing side.

 

Thanks in advance for any thoughts on this.

 

Cheers

Yes, there is, @Mike Bramble.

 

However, you’ll want to ensure the purchase order has the same vendor name. That way, you’ll be able to add multiple purchase orders on a single bill. Let me show you how to do it in your QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT) software.

  1. Go to the Vendors menu.
  2. Select Enter Bills.
  3. Choose a vendor from the Vendor drop-down menu.
  4. Click Yes when prompted to open purchase orders exist for this vendor. 1.JPG
  5. Select the purchase orders you want to add in the bill and click OK2.JPG 3.JPG
  6. Then simply click Save & Close when done.

For more details about entering bills in your QBDT software, you can check this link for reference: Enter bills.

 

Once you’ve settled your bills and you’re ready to pay, you can refer to this article on how to record it: Pay bills in QuickBooks Desktop.

 

You can always get back to me if you have other follow-up questions about entering bills in QBDT. I’m more than happy to assist you anytime. Have a great day!

Thank you so much. This is similar to logic in other systems I have used. 

 

Also, when will QB be introducing a Bill of Lading option. We are having to use one from an external vendor that is a bit clunky.
