Purchase Orders: Facility to add freight and other charges to the PO, and spread cost across inventory.

This is a very common requirement that is available in nearly all ERP system (even 30 years ago).

Its very simple:

  • Facility to add a list of additional charges at the document level and spread across line items when receipted.
  • Facility to add row specific charges and add to value of inventory.

In essence its Landed Costing where the product supplier is also the landed cost supplier, but the PO predefines the landed costs.

    Does anyone know of any add-in products for Acumatica that can provide this functionality?

    Normally when business raise PO to their suppliers, if the suppliers charges freight they add that to the PO.  Thus the PO reflects the total of the order - purchase freight plus any additional charges.  

    When the PO is receipted, the freight is spread across the inventory receipted.  And then when the AP Bill is processed, variances in the freight amount is applied to the inventory.

    Regards your question as to why Landed Cost document cannot be used:

    - PO does not reflect order to supplier

    - Excessive paperwork and admin to process additional documents

    - Acumatica is behind nearly all your ERP competition.  Never seen another ERP product that takes such a convoluted approach.

    I believe this is easy enough to comprehend as Acumatica does it for Sales Orders.

    Thank you for submitting your idea. There is the possibility to choose the allocation to lines method for a landed cost document to allocate amounts to inventory properly, which will adjust the inventory item cost on release. Please provide additional information on why Landed Cost document cannot be used to list and post additional charges on purchase receipt?

    would be very useful to add LC's on a PO (when vendor wants to see it on the PO), on a receipt OR during accounts payable.  However, current landed cost functionality is not working very well today.
