How to use the Purchase Invoice Report
Navigation: Login > Purchase Invoices
For Customer accounts, this option is called "Invoices."
This shows all billing history between your company and Packnet. In short, everything you have bought from Packnet. You can immediately see the owing balance on your account by age and reminders of the due dates on all invoices awaiting payment. The information displayed is sorted by date, newest to oldest.
The report allows filtering by date range (months) or day. Use the ‘type’ filter for invoices, payments, credits, or write-offs. Use the ‘Paid/Unpaid’ filter to look at paid, unpaid, or overdue invoices. Use the frequency filter to look at monthly or one-off invoices.
On the first of each month, monthly invoices (M) will show all voice, numbering, recording, connectivity and application services with repeat billing. Created at the point of order, one-off invoices (O) cover equipment orders such as IP phones, routers, switches or administrative tasks.
The report shows an entire history of all payments, including the method used for the payment (BACS, Direct Debit, Credit Card) and the invoice the payment has been allocated to. We have colour coded all the information within the report to make it easy on the eye.
