Sample text

Their adherence to this list can be tracked by comparing actual purchases to the yellow pages list and giving them feedback about the issue.  Paying sales and use taxes. Occasionally, a state sales tax auditor will arrive on a company’s doorstep, demanding to see documentation that proves it has paid a sales tax on all items purchased. This is not easy to do when procurement cards are used, not only because there may be a multitude of poorly organized supplier receipts but also because the sales tax noted on a credit card payment slip shows only the grand total sales tax paid, rather than the sales tax for each item purchased; this is an important issue, for some items are exempt from taxation, which will result in a total sales tax that appears to be too low in comparison to the total dollar amount of items purchased.

Managers no longer have to review a considerable number of invoices for payment approval, nor do they have to sign so many checks addressed to suppliers.  No cash advances. Whenever an employee asks for a cash advance, the accounting staff must create a manual check for that person, record it in the accounting records, and ensure that it is paid back by the employee. This can be a very time-consuming process in proportion to the generally meager advances given to employees. A credit card can avoid this entire process, because employees can go to an automated teller machine and withdraw cash, which will appear in the next monthly card statement from the issuing bank— no check issuances required.

It also happens when an original invoice is not paid on time, so the supplier floods the company with extra copies of the invoice, hoping that one of the copies will eventually be paid. There is no perfect solution to this problem, but the basic approach is to adopt a standard invoice numbering convention for the data-entry staff to follow, thereby introducing some consistency into this aspect of invoice data entry. It can include some of the following rules:  Drop leading zeros. It is also possible to reverse this rule and always use leading zeros, but the extra characters may overflow the computer field for invoice numbers.
