Material receipts

Material receipts refer to data, such as quantities and lot numbers, associated with items that are used for work done on-site by your employees.

When you receive inventory items against a purchase order, the quantities are updated in inventory and an inventory transaction is generated. You can also receive materials not tracked in inventory, but which require a purchase order.

For example, a catered lunch or a new desk is not stored in inventory or tracked by an item number. You would, however, track the costs on purchase orders and receipts.
