Bug - Vat Number

The printed Creditor remittance advises displays the Tax number (Edit Creditors) in the footer section. This label is not translatable and the tax terminology is not applicable to all countries (tax regimes).

This option allows you to generate Remittance advises which you wish to dispatch to your creditors to inform of payments being made to them. 

The Remittance advises will display the transactions entered and posted in batches (Purchases journal, Purchase returns journal, Payments journal, etc.). If you are trading in Stock items, it will also display the transactions for Purchase and Supplier returns documents which are updated to the ledger. 

The Creditor remittance advises need to be generated at least monthly and sent to the creditors. If you have any payments by cheque you may attach the applicable cheque to the Remittance advise. This will enable the creditors to allocate the payments received by them and to reconcile your debtors account (in the creditor's books) with their accounting records. You may also receive statements from your creditors which you may reconcile with the Remittance advises or your Creditor's ledger.
