Account for part supply of goods in your purchase order
If your supplier doesn't supply all the goods in your purchase order, you may want to add a bill for part of the order.
- Copy the purchase order to a bill and deselect Mark this purchase order as fully billed.
- Change the details of the bill to match the invoice received for the goods that have been supplied.
- (Optional) Add a Note in the History and Notes section of the purchase order to record the details items received, or the Expected arrival date.
- When you receive the invoice for the remaining goods, copy the purchase order to another new bill and change the details on the bill to match the balance of goods supplied.
