Proforma Invoice without stock transaction

0 Kudos

Hi All

Can you pay a proforma invoice without having the stock transferred?

As some of the stock coming into my company takes months to be made they do a proforma invoice but will immediately show this count in stock but will obviously get counted as not there in a stocktake.

Is there any way to delay the transaction until it can be GRd?

Your question is not very clear. What I understand is that you get a performa invoice upfront, based on which you want to pay. But the stock would arrive much later. If I get it correct, why don't you show the payment made earlier as a down payment on the PO and you could book invoice when the stock is received followed by invoice. You could than clear the invoice against the down payment made already.

Thanks & Regards
