How to Create a Purchase Invoice in Garage Hive

In this article, the first question to answer is why use a Purchase Invoice instead of a Purchase Order? The best answer to that question is that Purchase Invoices are used when the item being purchased does not need to be linked with a Jobsheet.

For instance, if you require a workshop tool for use in your garage, you need to create a Purchase Invoice, so it can be posted directly to the relevant G/L Account.

Purchase Invoices can also be used for any bills coming into the business, such as tyre Disposal Invoices, Utility Bills, etc.
