The customer BP invoice entry function is used to manage the customer invoicing out of the “typical” sales cycle. In this context, the user does not manage the order, the delivery note with the stock issue etc. When issuing the invoice, the data necessary to the accounting are saved.

We may need a basic important points to make a sales invoice such as:

  1. Customer
  2. Account
  3. Site
  4. Tax

Customer: In sales, commerce and economics, a customer which sometimes are a clients, buyer or purchaser or is  the recipient of a good, service , product or an idea obtained from a seller, vendor or supplier via a financial transaction or exchange for money or some other valuable consideration.

Account: A general ledger, also known as a nominal ledger, is a bookkeeping ledger that serves as a central repository for accounting data transferred from all sub ledgers like accounts payable, accounts receivable, cash management, fixed assets, purchasing and projects. Each account maintained by an organization is known as a ledger account, and the collection of all these accounts is known as the general ledger. The general ledger is the backbone of any accounting system which holds financial and non-financial data for an organization.

Tax: A tax is a compulsory financial charge or some other type of levy imposed on a taxpayer (an individual or legel entity by a governmental organization in order to fund government spending and various public expenditures.
