Suppliers - Accounts

This tab allows you to view the accounts for this supplier. When a new supplier is added, the grid will be empty until the supplier is saved. The system will then automatically create the supplier accounts. There are basically two accounts that are created, a Supplier Credit Account (shows what we owe the supplier for purchases) and a Supplier Debit Account (shows what the supplier owes us for rebates). However, the exact number of accounts that will be created will depend on how locations are set up. Do you have one account for all locations or one account per location? For more details see Accounts.
