Purchase return common question

Hi, i wonder how purchase return at stock entry works ?
i dont think its updated the current PR , and when the PR converted to PINV its not there too

thanks

Hi,
-if you make purchase receipt and purchase invoice for all quantity.After that if you want to return some of them.

  • you select “Purchase Return” as Purpose then it will ask to enter purchase receipt number.
    then you can enter how much quantity want to return.
  • After submitting stock entry ,you make debit note
  • in that select Expense Account it will be credited and another supplier account will be debited
    -For Debit entry, you can select Purchase invoice number (Against Purchase Invoice)

Hi,

Here what im confuse about…

  1. Create a PO
  2. Create a PR (ex 100qty)
  3. after checking done i created STE with purchase return (20 qty)
  4. Create PINV from PR … i expected PINV automatically for 80 qty (100 - 20)

am i wrong about this?..

Thanks

Hi,
Actually ,you are saying is correct but this is not happening like this (whatever you are saying)
when i check flow then it is working like-

  1. I created PO with 5 qty and rate=10 Amount become =50
  2. same Purchase receipt and purchase invoice made (that time outstanding Amount is=50)
    3.Make payment entry form Purchase invoice
    in that credit supplier Account =50 and Debit expense Account=50 and submit it i.e JV-0001
  3. Now, create stock entry with “purchase Return” for 2 quantity Amount become =20
    5.select purchase receipt number and Debit supplier account with =20 (select purchase invoice number and journal voucher number-jv-0001) ,credit the another account with 20
    because returning 2 quantity which having rate==10 ,Amount=20
  4. submit form.
  5. Then go to “Purchase invoice” form ,you can see “Outstanding Amount” become =30
    i.(50-20 =30)

This is not efficient, I feel it too complex for end-users and not accomodate the way of common business work. In fact, there’s interval in-between from receipt, invoice, and payment.

In my opinon, When creating purchase invoice from purchase receipt, the system should check if there’s stock return so generated invoice is based on real accepted qty (after return).

Unless purchase return is made after invoice is issued then we have to create debit note.

So I think this is a ‘bug’.

Thanks

Hi @shraddha ,

i dont think i can do step 4… i cant see where i can put the inv no and the jv no…
where is it?

Thanks

Hi,
-After purchase Return stock entry form submitted then click on “Make Debit Note” button, journal voucher form will be open.

  • There is “Journal Entries” section.
  • open table row and there is link field - Against Purchase Invoice , Against journal voucher
  • you can select respective purchase invoice number ,JV number.

i see thanks ill try to learn about the process more… i think i get what you tell me…

@shraddha, normally debit note is created after invoice is issued to deduct creditor account.
So if purchase return is done before invoice is issued, then I think the system should check actual received qty (after return) when creating the invoice.

Usually, business will issue purchase invoice after supplier invoice is received (the qty is -after delivery and after return-). But If they return the stocks after supplier send the invoice then either they replace the stocks or issue credit note.

Don’t you think so?

Hi,

I have been following this thread on purchase returns. I have done the following:

  • Purchased item, created the purchase invoice (BILLxxxxx) and JV for payment to supplier (ie, payment already made and item delivered)
  • The Item was subsequently returned to supplier
  • Went back to the purchase invoice (BILLxxxxx) and selected the “Make Purchase Return” button
  • Submitted the form (with negative amount)
  • At this point, I can’t find any “Make Debit Note” button.

What should I do to proceed on?

Thank you.

When we make purchase return (i.e. make debit note from purchase invoice), why it is not reducing the stock?

Erpnext can not make purchase invoice from recieve and return in same bill
So i have to manual fix .
I agree this is bug.
