How to receive a purchase order
In this module, learn how to receive items on a purchase order when stock has arrived. Once the items have been received, a bill payable is created in your connected Xero account.
Go to Purchase Orders under the Sales & Purchases tab.
Find your order and click on the orange truck icon next to it.
This brings you to the Receive Order page.
Choose the invoice status, the invoice number, and dates. This information will flow through to the bill created in Xero.
Also add any supplier-added landing costs such as freight.
To include third-party landing costs (e.g. custom fees), see our guide on service expenses.
Step 4Under the Received Materials section, you can change the stock levels received and/or the unit cost if these are different from what you ordered.
Under Related Project Materials, you can adjust the cost and charge of these items in relation to specific projects.
Then click Proceed.
Step 6Finally, confirm the stock level changes based on the purchase order you’ve just received in, and you’re done!
