PO Receipt -> Order Reconciliation By Order Currency Amount

For some kind of companies where it is important to Reconcile PO Receipt with PO order not only by Quantity but also by Currency Amount. It might be useful for services and for stock items.

So basically it is required to have Receipt Line Total cost (in PO Currency) as read-only field on receipt line. And receipt total in PO Currency as well.

I saw estimated in tran cost on receipt line but it is in base currency.

    Requested by VelcoAsia

    Normally the warehouse didn’t know the price of the item being purchased, the purpose is for the warehouse to validate the price of the item against vendor documents that’s why we want the price to be included in the receipt documents. Usually the warehouse has no access in the PO.

    I think it is all related to high number of frauds in Asia. Workers afraid to receive something if they don't know that exactly this was ordered and Amount is one of the measurements.

    Our partner have a lot of customer using only purchasing module, some of them will use Purchase Order and Purchase Receipt, but some of that only use Purchase Receipt. Since version 2018 R2, Acumatica remove a lot of field related to currency on Purchase Receipt, it mean a lot of report and customization will only based on Purchase Receipt. It will cause a big problem if customer want to update the latest version

    Customer from Indonesia, Partner Think Thank

    This happened normally when we have PO that buying from overseas where involve foreign currency. For example when Indonesia company (Have home currency on IDR) buy something in USD dollar (somewhat in that transaction that they have exchange rate on that PO. Upon receive the items, it could take months. Later during the receive the items, the exchange rate already fluctuate let say it become higher rate than before. They would like to use that exchange rate during the receipt to be part of inventory cost. However during the  2018R2, it would use the PO rate during the receipt rate since they don’t have the rate anymore. Somewhat this practice not in line with practice acknowledge in Indonesia accounting practice. So the cost of goods during the receipt rate not during the AP Bill

It will cause a big problem if customer want to update the latest version. Let example

    Scenario 1: Customer only use purchase receipt in purchasing process to tracking the receipt and also use the amount on this as the printed form to get the confirmation and signature of who receipted goods.

    Scenario 2: Customer use the purchase order and the purchase receipt together. Based on the amount of purchase order and receipt, they will use to tracking the KPIs of order and actually amount of receipt

    I Voted this, because we have customer in Indonesia with the business process buying goods from overseas, they usualy using currency rates as a cost of Purchase Receipt.

    I agree with this comment :
    "..Somewhat this practice not in line with practice acknowledge in Indonesia accounting practice. So the cost of goods during the receipt rate not during the AP Bill."

    This idea should be merged with idea https://feedback.acumatica.com/ideas/ACU-I-2123

    Also in Eastern Europe this practice not in line with accounting practice. The cost of goods should be received at the exchange rate on the date of receipt and not the exchange rate on date of AP Bill. When some goods are purchased from China it may be a few months between the date of the PO and the date of purchase receipt (can be a significant difference between exchange rates)
