The primary receiving location for the company is used as a default receiving address in the purchase order system. This is the address that is printed on the purchase order forms sent vendors if no other receiving address is specified on the purchase order shipping screen. The automated inventory restocking processes assume that products whose Location Code fields are either blank or same are to be received at the companys primary receiving location.
The menu selection Company Receiving Address on the Select, Purchase Order menu, is used to enter the companys primary receiving address. The Company Receiving Address screen is shown below.
The Sales Tax Rate is used with non-inventory purchase orders to calculate the tax on taxable orders. Although the tax rate for a non-inventory purchase order can be entered on the non-inventory purchase order data entry screen, the tax rate for the companys primary receiving location can be used as the default value if it is available.
