Create an item receipt when you have a purchase order

To do this task

  1. Choose Vendors > Receive Items to open the Create Item Receipts window.

  2. Click the Vendor drop-down arrow and click the vendor from whom you received the items.

    If there are open purchase orders for this vendor, QuickBooks asks if you want to receive against them.

  3. Click Yes in the Open PO's Exist window.

  4. In the Open Purchase Orders window, click each purchase order that contains items you're receiving, and then click OK.

  5. In the Create Item Receipts window, make any necessary changes to the line items, such as changing the quantity or cost (or deleting an item completely from the detail area).

  6. Save the item receipt.

What happens when I save an item receipt?

QuickBooks increases your accounts payable by the amount shown on the item receipt.

For each inventory item on the receipt, QuickBooks adjusts the quantity in stock (which increases your inventory asset account), lowers your quantity on order, and recalculates the item's average cost.
