Goods shipped by sea date of invoice

Hello there

We are an importer of goods and often use sea shipments from the Far East, which means we are invoiced in full by the supplier when the goods are handed over to the agent at the port (say month 1) and then the goods can take up to 9 weeks to arrive and then they are booked in (say month 3).With previous software I have had two date fields, one the posting date which is when the entry arrives in the accounts and two the document date which is the date of the suppiers invoice. This way the invoice would be entered as the same date as the receipt of goods but the aging could be arranged by document date. All very helpful. Acumatica has only one date field avaiable for a purchase invoice and I am not sure what to do for the best. I know we could probably use Goods in Transit booking which is technically the correct way but we prefer not to as we are such a small company and would prefer one entry instead of two. (booking goods in and then transferring them once they arrive)….Does anyone have  any ideas for me. All gratefully received.
