Creating bills in ApprovalMax for Xero

ApprovalMax allows the creation of Xero bills directly in ApprovalMax. All relevant information such as supplier and inventory items are automatically synced from the respective Xero organisation, which ensures the same user experience as if working in Xero itself.

The newly created bills are automatically run through an authorisation process, which is based on the predefined approval workflow. When that has been completed, the authorised bills get pushed to Xero in the "Awaiting Payment" status.

This is how it works

Bill creation

New bills are created via the "NEW REQUEST" button. Supplier information such as the address and contact details as well as inventory item data is pulled from Xero and entered automatically.

Bill to purchase order matching

For all bills with a corresponding purchase order there is the option to match bill and purchase order in ApprovalMax, which includes copying certain information such as the bill coding from the original purchase order. This step is optional.

Multi-step and multi-role authorisation

The automated approval workflow routes all new bills through a multi-step and multi-role authorisation process, which is based on one or several criteria like supplier, tracking category, amount, etc. pulled from Xero.

Approved bill

Once reviewed and authorised, bills are pushed to Xero in the "Awaiting Payment" status - ready to be paid and to be accounted for in the GL reports.
