The SAO vendor staff has 48 hours in order to approve new vendors or make changes to a current vendor record. If your vendor has not been approved or changes made after 48 hours, please call the SAO Customer Service Center @ 404-657-3956 or 888-896-7771.
Send an email to email@example.com requesting that EFT information be added to a vendor record. Be sure to include all banking information (Bank routing ID and Vendor Bank Account number). You may also fax the information to 404-463-5089 Attn: Vendor Maintenance.
Have the vendor fill out a new W-9 form (taxpayer ID form) and submit it as an attachment in an email to the firstname.lastname@example.org address. You may also fax a copy of the form to 404-463-5089 (Attn: Vendor Maintenance).
Yes. If the employee vendor record is to be used on the Header panel of the voucher (ex. Travel payment). If you need to use the employee vendor ID for a third party payment, the vendor record must go through overnight processing in order to be added to a table of which the AP process will pull the employee ID record to ensure that the vendor is truly an employee. The voucher may be set up and payment made to the employee after this overnight process.
Check the Purchase Order. In order for a Purchase order to be pulled into AP, the Purchase Order must be in a dispatched status. In order for a Purchase Order to be in a dispatched status, it must have first been approved and/or budget checked.
There are several reasons that the voucher may have been placed in a recycled status. Check the following:
Invoice # - If the invoice number entered on a voucher is a duplicate of another invoice number, your voucher is placed in a recycled status.
Out of Balance - If the sum of the voucher lines on the Line Information & Charges panel does not equal the gross amount on the Voucher Header, the difference will be displayed in the top right corner of the Header panel. This is the amount by which the voucher is out of balance.
Once the voucher has been accessed, go to the Line Information & Charges panel. Place the cursor into the Description field and insert a new voucher line. This new voucher line should be used to expense the shipping charges. Keep in mind that if this is related to a purchase order, the system tolerances levels would have to be examined before entries are made.
It depends upon the “Charge By” selection on the Distribution panel of the Purchase Order. If the purchase order is set to ‘Charge By’ Amount, the user may change the amount on the Lines Information & Charges panel of the PO Voucher. If the purchase order is set to “Charge By’ Quantity, the user must change the quantity field on the Lines Information & Charges panel of the PO Voucher in order to affect the amount of the voucher (PO) line.
A credit memo should be added using an Adjustment Voucher. By using an Adjustment Voucher, the user may relate the credit memo to a previously paid voucher. Negative amounts that are entered on the Header panel of an Adjustment Voucher will not copy to the Line Information & Charges panel and must be entered manually by the user.
In order to correlate expenses to an employee, the employee should first be set up as a vendor. After the vendor record is established and processes through overnight processing, the voucher may be established. The vendor on the Voucher Header panel should be the third party vendor (check will be made to this vendor). On the Line Information & Charges panel, a separate voucher line should be entered for each individual employee for whom payment is being made. The Third Party Check-box should be checked and each employee vendor Id entered into the Recipient field on this panel. All voucher line amounts should equal the total amount entered on the Voucher Header panel.
There are several ways to set up these type payments. A Template Voucher may be set up to use for payments that occur often. This Template may be used again and again for a particular vendor. There is also a Recurring Voucher which will allow the set up of multiple vouchers at one time.
A Pay Cycle should be set to clear the Zero payables from your reports. Under Create Payments, Payment Selection Criteria, select the Date Criteria panel, mark the check box “Process Zero Pay Cycle”. On the Bank/Payment Method Criteria panel select the check box next to the Bank/Bank Account from which you wish to clear the payables. The system will assign a “ZPYMT” reference number to the voucher which will clear the payable from your reports.
An Adjustment voucher must be entered to remove the travel expense from the incorrect vendor ID and to place the expense into the correct vendor record.
The vendor on the adjustment voucher header panel should be the vendor whose record is incorrect. Voucher line 1 (Line Information & Charges panel) should relate to the vendor on the header and should be for a negative (-) amount. A second voucher line should be inserted for the third party checkbox to be available for entry or selection of the correct employee vendor ID with a positive (+) amount. The gross amount of the adjustment voucher should be zero.
This means that the vendor selected is a 1099 vendor. Voucher lines may be selected or deselected for 1099 reporting by pressing the 1099 button.
When a vendor is activated for 1099 effective after the date on a PO, the 1099 drilldown button on the PO vouchers created will be active, but none of the lines will be selected for 1099. A user may have to exit out of the saved voucher and re-enter to see the 1099 button active. The users should then drilldown to the 1099 panel and select the line(s).
When the vendor used on a PO is selected for 1099, the selection of the 1099 button and 1099 code defaults unto the PO (Lines panel, use double chevrons). Then when a PO Voucher is created, the 1099 drilldown button is grayed. To get the 1099 button to activate, exit then re-enter the voucher, then select to drilldown into the 1099 Information panel to verify selection of lines or to deselect as needed.
When the vendor is not selected for 1099, the PO will not be selected for 1099 and the 1099 drilldown button on the voucher will be grayed.
Go to the Scheduled Payments panel and the scroll bar should be at the top, indicating that there is additional information. Pull the scroll bar down and there should be an additional payments panel that is active and that should have the “Hold” checkbox selected.
When a voucher is saved, the Scheduled Due date is calculated based on the terms and the Invoice Date. To ensure that the discounted voucher is selected in the next pay cycle, you should change the Scheduled Due date to current date and be sure that the pay cycle includes this date.
