While entering into this platform you will get details about all vendor bills created and drafted in the Invoicing module. The list will show the Bill Number, Vendor, Bill Date, Due Date, Reference, Next Activity, Tax Excluded, Total, and Status of the vendor bill. You can also change the list view into Kanban view at your convenience. The Filters and Group By options in the window can be used to sort and categorize the data. You will be able to use default as well as customizable filters and grouping options in this module.

In order to generate a new vendor bill, you need to click on the ‘Create’ option shown in the image. It is also possible to upload your vendor bills to the system by using the ‘Upload’ button in the same window.

Now, let’s look into how to create new vendor bills in the Odoo Invoicing module. When you click on the ‘Create’ button, you will be directed to a new vendor bill creation window as shown below.

First, you need to select the Vendor from the given list. Similarly, you can add details about the Delivery Address, Bill Reference, Payment Reference, Recipient Bank, Bill Date, Accounting Date, and Due Date. The Bill Date can be used to mention the date on which you want to generate this vendor bill. The Accounting Date is the date on which the accounting details of this bill have been updated in the report.

In the Auto-Complete field, you can select a purchase order or old bill.

Under the Invoice Line tab, you can add Products to the vendor bill. By clicking on the Add a Line button, you can select products from the given list.

If you are not sure about the details entered in the vendor bill at the time of creation and you want to check the data again, you can activate the ‘To Check’ field.

You can save the data by clicking on the ‘Save’ button after completing all fields and you will get a draft form of the vendor bill.

After confirming the vendor bill, you can take further action on the bill. You will be able to get options to Register Payment, Add Credit Note, Add Debit Note, and Reset to Draft.

A debit note is issued when there is a return in the purchase and a credit note is issued when there is a return in sales. When the customer returns the product to the vendor, the customer will issue a debit note and the vendor will issue a credit note. Here, you can create a Credit Note in the same method we discussed earlier.

While creating Debit Note from the vendor bill, it will not reverse the current bill as we did in the earlier Odoo version, instead, Odoo 15 will create a new bill with the same data. This can be used to bill for the extra quantities received, when the Bill Control Policy is set on the Ordered Quantity.
