    Hi Peter, Thanks for your reply, However if its a payment without an invoice it is paid. Were just awaiting the Invoice to view the Tax breakdown however I would Still need to record the Cheque written to the Supplier.

    Hi M,

    So give me the context of what you're doing.

    1) You've received goods/services from a supplier.
    2) You've sent them a chq.
    3) You want to add the bill to Bullet.

    You can like I mention below, just add it to Bullet. If it's paid mark it as paid, if you don't know the VAT % they use then just pick one and edit later.

    We only lock of the VAT post return.

    Hi Pete,
    the Director Makes a payment to a supplier but as Yet I have not received the Invoices to go against this payment, I need the Payment to the Supplier to be raised on the System so I'm flagged to chase up and get the Invoice. Otherwise I may pay them again?

    Also in relation to Bank Transactions, Is there no Cash book entry for Bank fees, why do these need to be raised in the Supplier Section?

    Hi Megan,

    Sure just follow my previous instructions.

    Cashbook We keep things simple, a bill is a bill whether from a bank or supplier.

Hi Megan,
Sure, you can just leave it as unpaid. So the question “have you paid for it yet”, just leave as “no”. 
Hope that helps.
