Problem: How to record pre payments or Advance payments to Suppliers or Vendors
Solution: Recording of a pre payment to your Supplier can be completed using AP Advances in System Five. This allows you to generate a check to your vendor without having a bill or invoice. Using a clearing account, the system creates a bill with a check that you can process and print. Once the bill arrives from your Supplier, you will be able to use the advance (presents as a credit on the supplier account) to pay down the bill.
