Purchase receipts

Purchase Receipts are not invoices but rather confirmations of received payments, such as a ticket or a receipt.

This feature is meant to be used when you pay directly with your company’s money for an expense. Vendor Bills, on the other hand, are recorded when an invoice is issued to you and that the amount is first credited on a debt account before a later payment reconciliation.


Expenses paid by employees can be managed with Flectra Expenses, an app dedicated to the approval of such expenses and the payments management. Click here for more information on how to use Flectra Expenses.
