Quicken & Other Budget/Accounting Software/Invoice


The company issued a PO from the system amounting 55,000.00. And the supplier send an invoice amounting 49,500.00 (90% from PO amount)

How do in enter the invoice to contra with the PO and what is the entries?

In QuickBooks,  the Purchase order is a non-posting transaction. It does not affect any
accounting records. Therefore, after receiving your 49500 worth of services
or product, you can manually close the purchase order.

QuickBooks has a box in the lower left of the PO form (or in version 2013 a button on the form ribbon bar on top) that you can check that will manually close the purchase order.
