Dear all,

Please help us in this case:

Vendor A is parent of Vendor B. Bills are issued from B, but we must pay to A (Parent of B)

In Vendor Profile of Vendor B, we choose Vendor A in Parent Account field . But when we create payment to Vendor A, we cannot choose Open Bills of Vendor B.

So How to set up to can pay to parent vendor for bills of child?

Thanks and Best regards,

I have two ideas that may help you.

With Vendor Relations feature enabled in System Management → Enable/Disable, you can use Pay-To-Vendor field on the Payments tab of Vendor profile to default Parent vendor #2 onto all Bills/Checks for any PO or PO Receipt using Vendor #1 (known as Supplied by Vendor).

Second, instead of setting up vendors as Parent/Child, Business Account Locations feature may be activated in System Management → Enable/Disable, then vendor “children” could be set up as Locations under one parent Vendor profile.

With children set up as Locations, the Vendor ID and correct location may be selected on every vendor document.
