Purchase Orders


I was speaking to Anum from your support team, I was told to add my suggestion here.

For our business, we have subcontractors working for us and for work to be proceeded we would send them a purchase order to carry out the work and once the work has been completed they would send us an invoice for the work they have carried out. At the moment there's nothing like this as I've been told. 

A purchase order is different for our business to what it is on kashflow... I understand it is an accounting software so this is not an important topic however it's never a bad idea to increase the range of services you provide to match different businesses.

Maybe add a subcontractors option. 


Thank you

    This is what i told 'Anum'' and she thought it was a good idea
    It's confusing to explain but this is what happens with our business
    When we have subcontractors working for us, we would send them a purchase order to carry out the work and once the work is completed they would send us an invoice for the completed work the have carried out.
    Is there a way for us to have something like this? or would we have to create our purchase order separately and once they have invoiced us it would go on the system.
    ''This does seem like a good idea though so it would be great if you could add your suggestion to our Canvass site where KashFlow clients can share ideas directly with our Product team''.

    Absolutely agree. POs are a standard mode of operation as are Pro Forma invoices and neither are here. Really basic stuff in my lowly opinion.

    I would love this, I have been asking ever since we started using Kashflow in August 2007.

    We need to be able to "book in" part supplied orders as some items can be ex stock from our supplier whilst others can take up to 12 weeks. We would ideally convert a quote into an order and then into an invoice as an when the goods arrive. This would leave the outstanding items in the order list.

    Such a shame this isn't being planned into the updates!
    We are an industrial door company where from PO stage up to receiving an invoice from our supplier can take up to 2 months.

    We have resorted by placing ORDER in the suppliers ref box then their ref so we can seperate the POs from invoices. Before we were doing this, PO's were accidently being paid prior to receiving the invoice from our supplier causing a lot of confusion! 
    We really feel this is something that is important to look into from Kashflows point.
