Hi there. I would like to see the ability to create a Pro Forma invoice. To remove the due date, let the customers know that the invoice is in lieu of a job being undertaken or goods being dispatched and change the title and layout from a regular invoice.

Got my vote too. Suprising how much you miss this feature when moving from some different accounting software.

This would be a much better idea than using a quote as I do now.

Agreed...  I'm a bit confused as creating an invoice (with due date later) for an existing job (in progress) seems to affect your assets and few other reports... I thought it shouldn't be counted since you are on a "cash" basis? 


is this because we are creating an invoice (as opposed to a proforma?) or ?

Hi @SYD_MFR

 

Thank you for your feedback in regards to MYOB Essentials.

MYOB Essentials naturally runs off an accrual basis in terms of accounts. So when you enter a transaction such as an invoice that transaction is going to affect the accounts i.e. Accounts Receivables and the income account at the time of recording the transaction. Certain reports and for GST purposes you can display on a cash basis and therefore show a different value when compared to the accrual report.

Yes, a good idea.  It is a pretty basic bit of invoicing funtionality.
