3.Use Supplier Rules to establish routine behaviours
It’s common that a business will purchase the same type of goods or services from a single supplier, for example;
Uber receipts are always categorised as a travel expense
Adobe, Google, Apple & Microsoft receipts are always categorised as IT costs
Gas and Electricity bills are always categorised under utility costs
Supplier Rules automate this behaviour, so that you don’t need to review predictable paperwork from repeat suppliers.
You can use Supplier Rules to assign a default;
Invoice due date
Once you’ve set a supplier rule, it will be applied every time a new transaction from that supplier is uploaded to Receipt Bank. It will also be applied to every existing transaction from that supplier in the Inbox.
