The supplier report will give you an overview of your purchases.
Note! Only the companies marked as a supplier are displayed in the supplier report.
For contact to appear in the suppliers' list, you first need to activate the option Use suppliers under finance settings. After that, tick the option Display in supplier list in the relevant company modify view.
You can find the supplier report by going to Reports > Supplier report.
The information in this report is taken from the document data - supplier cost field, which is filled in according to the product default buying price in the product card.
You can filter the report by suppliers, dates, projects and sales documents.
Here's a use case of a supplier report and project view, where there is a difference between the views:
The difference can occur if the actual buying price is higher/lower than expected and if the invoice is created from the quote or manually using the default price from the product card.
For example, the default buying price for a product is 70 EUR
When creating an invoice out of a quote, you have the same default buying price of the same product:
Then you have received a bill from your supplier, but the price is higher than expected:
The Supplier report will display the amount that you quoted and invoiced:
However, the project view will show you the price you received from your supplier:
If you do not fill in the cost section when creating quotes/invoices or do not add the actual costs according to received bills, you will have different information in the supplier report and project view.
