FB60-Create vendor invoice
Business scenario– Fb60 is used to create an invoice. These are direct invoices which are not coming from a purchase order. If the invoice is being created in reference to a purchase order, tcode, MIRO would be used.
Note-If you are using Vendor Invoice Management, then the invoice would be created through a DP.
Menu Path-Accounting-Financial Accounting-Accounts Payable-document entry-FB60 -Invoice
or access it directly via tcode FB60
Enter the following info on the next screen.
1-Vendor number – Enter the vendor from who the purchase was made.
2-Invoice Date- The invoice date is the date the purchase was made. E.g., if a purchase was made on 1/1/2017, but the vendor did not send the invoice on 1/10/2017, the invoice date will be 1/1/2017
3-Posting date- This is the date when the posting hit the financial books. This was the date when we recorded the transaction in SAP. It is possible to purchase something on 1/1/2017, but only record the invoice in SAP on 2/15/2017. In this case, the posting date will be 2/15/2017.
4-Document type – This is usually KR for vendor invoices.
5-Amount- Enter the amount of the purchase
6- Reference number-This is usually the vendor invoice number. When the vendor calls us to inquire about a payment, this is the number he references.
7- Text- Can be used to identify what the purchase was. E.g., markers for all conference rooms.
8-G/L Account- The G/L account is the bucket used to classify these costs. E.g., if we purchased office supplies, then we would use the office supplies G/L account here.
9-Debit or credit- For an invoice, the G/L side will be debit as the vendor is credited.
10-Amount- The amount for this G/L. The amount on the vendor and the G/L should balance to 0.
11- Cost Center- Used for internal reporting. E.g., Cost center 1000, Dallas office. We can run reports on this cost center to find out how much the Dallas office is spending on office supplies.
Once all the info is entered, you can click on the simulate icon to check for any errors before you post the document.
