2998416 - Net price in Supplier Invoice is Different from Purchase Order Price


You have created a purchase order where you entered net price for bulk quantity (say 10X/ 1000 units). (Here X refers to currency)

In the follow-up supplier invoice, the net price is calculated for each unit(i.e. 0.01X/unit) instead of 1000 units and then multiplied with the total quantity.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Supplier Invoicing
  2. Select view: Invoice Entry
  3. Select the relevant Purchase Order for which you are creating the invoice
  4. Select New Invoice
  5. The net price calculation is based on per unit instead of multiple units


In supplier invoice, the calculation is always based on price/unit which means it will calculate the price for each unit and then multiply with the total quantity to get the total net value.


You can manually overwrite the values in supplier invoice if necessary.
