Receiving Stock

Posted |

Goods Received Note is a document that is used to record the inventory items received from suppliers. GRNs can be issued directly or against already issued Purchase Orders. The document normally records details of Received Quantity, Supplier Name and PO No. The practice of preparing GRNs is important as it promotes proper inventory control and restricts the unwanted, unauthorized entry of goods in the organization.

If suppliers are not already defined, you can add a new supplier through quick definition screen by clicking the quick definition button (button with plus sign).


Current date will appear in the Date field.

The system will generate a number for the GRN to identify it

Select the radio button for Payment Mode depending upon how you make payment to the supplier for stock received.

 Note. All cash payments to supplier on this screen appear as cash outflows in Supplier Payment field on Store Closing screen.

Receiving Stock on Credit: If stock is received on credit, select Credit from Payment Mode radio buttons.

Payment to credit customers is made on Supplier Payment screen.

Opening Balance of supplier (amount payable to supplier) is also automatically updated on Supplier Account Opening screen.
