Document Detail
What is one time vendor account?
An account on which the transaction figures are recorded for a group of vendors that you only
conduct business once, or rarely

Use of One-Time-Vendor Master


In one time vendor we are not maintaing vendor specific master data. The details of the vendor
are entered only at the time of entering invoice. After that we can't use the details of the one time
vendor. But you can post more than one transactions for that one time vendor. In Normal vendor,
we key in all vendor details at the time of vendor creation. But it is not possible to convert one
time vendor to normal vendor.
You can create special vendor master records for vendors from whom you procure goods only
once or rarely, so-called One-Time Vendor Master Records. For example, suppose you order
goods from a vendor with whom you usually do not place orders, because your main vendor was
not able to supply the required items. In this case, you would use a "one-time vendor" master
record.
When creating a "one-time vendor" master record, you must assign a one-time account group.
This account group determines that the vendor-specific fields are suppressed. You dont need to
enter this data until the time a purchasing document (e.g. a PO) is created.
When you create a purchasing document with a one-time vendor, you will be asked to enter the
vendor address. Enter the vendors name and address. Like all other master records, you can
display, block, or delete one-time vendor master records.

Configuration:
When creating the Vendor account group, One Time account check box is ticked to
define the one time vendor account group. Number ranges and field settings are
maintained as per the requirement. Most of the fields are made optional unlike regular
vendors.
