Purchase Returns

We are use Attain 3.10 but do not have Purchase Returns Shipments capability. How would we record the despatch of items back to a vendor ahead of receiving the Credit memo from the vendor. We want to do this so that inventory is correct and so that we ensure that we receive the credit from the supplier. Thank You

I don’t see a ‘clean’ way of doing it. You can only effect the stock by doing an inventory journal. You could create a purchase credit memo for the expected qty and value to indicate that you are expecting a credit from the supplier, then post the credit when you receive the document from the supplier. But you would you have to put the stock back on before posting the credit memo or you would write off the stock twice. All very messy. Why don’t you just buy the granule? Is it so expensive?
