Purchase Receipt - Inventory costs from multiple Supplier


I have a quick question about purchase receipts. When we receive items from oversees, we sometimes have import duties/custom charges associated with the shipment but are paid to a another supplier.

See example below.

Purchase from Supplier 1:

Item 1 – Qty 100 @ 5 = 500
Item 2 – Qty 50 @ 30 = 1500
Total from supplier 1 = 2000

Import Duties Paid to Supplier 2 for this shipment:

Total Paid QAR 200

Now, I want my inventory to be recorded at the value of cost plus import duties. Now thru Purchase Receipt, I can enter the import duties in the Taxes & Charges table which would allocate the cost to the inventory – but how do I record these charges against Supplier 2 and not Supplier 1.

Kindly assist.

In Purchase Receipt, while entering Import Duties, select the category as “For Valuation”. It will include the cost only for the valuation for item, will not affect supplier 1.

Then later make a Purchase Invoice for booking Import Duty against Supplier 2.

Note: If your import duty statement comes after a period, then you can make the PR on receiving goods and then later add import duty via Landed Cost Voucher.
