Invoice example With GST & PST An invoice not only shows the customer or client how much money is due but provides tax information in some countries multiple taxes may apply for example in Canada it is required to put the Suppliers identification numbers for GST and QST taxes purposes. Whenever a taxable sale is made the customer must be informed that GST and QST are added to the selling price. As there are no standard invoices required by law for this purpose you must indicate the amount of the taxes on the cash register receipt; on the invoice or contract remitted to the customer. If you choose to indicate the GST and the QST the amounts must be stated clearly.The European Union requires a VAT (value added tax) identification number on invoices between entities registered for VAT.

Paper invoices entering the AP department are now scanned into the IMS (Invoice Management Solution) system. Using Automated Data Capture technologies the header information such as invoice total supplier name etc is automatically read from the invoice. The integration between IMS and the ERP then enables this data to be populated directly to register the invoice in the financial system with minimal manual data entry required. If IMS does not recognise the vendor workflow automatically sends this as a query to the business user who can then select whether this is a new vendor to be set up in the ERP or is just a one-off vendor. The integration between IMS and the ERP triggers the creation of the appropriate vendor. This ensures that delays are not created with unknown vendors and speeds up the process of adding new vendors to the finance system.
