You might make a purchase at a store and pay with cash. To enter the store receipt and your payment into Microsoft Office Accounting 2008, you can create a cash purchase.
Note: If you selected the Use jobs check box in the Preferences dialog box, the Cash Purchase form includes a Job name field. If you selected the Use Departments check box in the Preferences dialog box, the Cash Purchase form includes a Department field.
You can view all cash purchases in the Purchase Invoices and Goods Received Notes List.
For a small or single cash purchase where you don't want to set up unique suppliers, you can create a single supplier. You then assign all transactions of this type to the same supplier.
