For understanding of flow in sage 500 ERP system; we take SO( 0000000325 ) for customer BlackWel, who returns the item as he is not satisfied with the product.
We create a RMA against the SO by selecting SO line and enter the details and reason for return of goods.
Then step ahead for Customer Returns, we will verify the qty. of goods that are returned and select the Bin (VernonBinA) for product in Inventory Distribution using ‘Detail’ option.
Now we commit and post Customer return as per date, it was generated for product and Process AR invoice of generated CM (Credit Memo) for customer return on related SO.
Navigate to ‘Account Receivables’ à ‘Activities’ à ‘Process Invoice’ , select the shipment (or SO) for which return is applied, you observe the CM is generated already for SO. (CM get generated for customer return after we post SO in ERP system).
After selecting the CM we post the invoice.
This is how the flow for customer return carried in Sage 500 ERP, with Implementation of smart return policies.
