Supplier Posting Profiles

Supplier posting profiles control the assignment of summary accounts for supplier transactions. They are a prerequisite in the setup of supplier records and control the posting of supplier related transactions to the General Ledger.


Supplier posting profiles enable you to assign General Ledger accounts and settings to all suppliers, a group of suppliers, or a single supplier but all supplier records must have one. 

The posting profile defines a combination of account details however the summary account is the primary setting to determine the liability amounts for the assigned suppliers.


As standard, businesses configure a single posting profile named GEN (General). This captures all relative settings for supplier postings. If users wish to use alternative profile settings for special purposes like prepayment or Intercompany, you can set up additional posting profiles with account assignments that are different from the settings in the default posting profile.

These can be defined by individual supplier or by supplier group.
