Screen Overview

This is the first of several screens used to set up or view Vendor records and review payment history information. Vendor records are used to identify a vendor name, address, and other information to be used when creating invoices, checks and payments via ACH. These vendors are also used when creating Subsidiary records (fixed assets, prepaids, accrued expenses, etc.).

It is easy to search for a specific vendor and sort the vendor list.  The A/P vendors are presented in a convenient list with key information like Status, Date Last Paid, Amount Paid YTD and Expense G/L available for view. 

Printing a "Quick G/L Check"

If this screen is accessed via "Quick Check" on the Process Payments for Vendors screen, selecting a vendor will take you to the Create Quick G/L Check screen where you can create a check for a  vendor without an invoice.  (If approvals for payments is activated, this feature will not be available.)
