Provide My ABN/GST/VAT number in EzzyBills user settings (so that your business will not be chosen as an supplier).
Q22. What if the supplier was not read correctly and you think you have done everything in Q5?
Modify the supplier in your accounting software. And diagnose the problem so that it can be fixed next time.
1) If there is an ABN/GST/VAT on the invoice file (in clear text), go to your accounting software
– find the wrong supplier that was used, and ensure the ABN/GST/VAT number is correctly set (not using the ABN for another supplier).
– find the correct supplier that should be used, to make sure the ABN/GST/VAT number is correctly set too.
2) If there is not an ABN/GST/VAT on the invoice,
– you need to make sure the supplier in your accounting software has more details to give EzzyBills more data to find a perfect match.
– in EzzyBills Setting, you click “Refresh GL” before processing more invoices from the same supplier immediately.

GL codes vary by company. We use your suppliers’ data and invoice history in your accounting software to determine GL account codes . To have GL codes automated, you shall in your accounting software 1) keep suppliers’ contact data up to date, 2) include a ABN/GST/VAT number for each supplier, 3) provide a default GL account for purchase details, and 4) correct the GL code if it is wrong on an invoice – it will be right next time for similar invoices.
