Sage 100: How The Purchase Vendor Transfer Feature Works In Accounts Payable

sageUse the Purchase Vendor Transfer feature in Sage 100 to make transfers on invoices for credit card vendors.  This feature allows you to transfer a dollar amount from a credit card vendor (Visa, Amex, etc)  to a regular (purchase) vendor to record the amount if it was paid by credit card.  Also, you can transfer an outstanding invoice from a purchase vendor to the credit card vendor to pay off the open invoice.  Finally, you can combine invoices to create one invoice for the credit card vendor.  Remember, in order to use the Purchase Vendor Transfer button, you must mark the credit card vendor and the purchase vendor a ‘credit card vendor’ in Vendor Maintenance.PTV

Described below are steps for recording a credit card purchase using Accounts Payable Invoice Data Entry, and subsequently transferring that dollar amount to the regular (purchase) vendor.  This feature allows for the transaction to be stored with not only the credit card vendor, but the purchase vendor as well.

  1. Accounts Payable, Main, Invoice Data Entry
  2. At the Vendor No. field, enter the credit card vendor number
  3. Enter a new invoice number
  4. Enter applicable invoice information on the Header tab
  5. On the Lines tab, click the Transfer Information button.  The Purchase Vendor Transfer window appears
  6. At the Vendor No. field, enter the purchase vendor’s GL account number.  This field defaults to the GL account number entered for the purchase vendor in Vendor Maintenance
  7. At the Transfer Amount field, enter the purchase amount to apply to the purchase vendor
  8. Enter 1099 data, if applicable
  9. Click Accept and update all registers

The transaction is recorded and retained with the credit card vendor, and the transaction is recorded and retained with the purchase vendor.
