❑Each entity (e.g., person, business, government agency) who qualifies as a Vendor must have specific Information entered for several reasons:
•Each supplier of parts, services, and commodities must be identified so they can get paid (you can't write a check to "no one").
•Others to whom a Payment must be issued (e.g., Employees, Taxing Authorities, Sub-Contractors) must also be identified.
•Many Reports can be created based on a selection of Vendor Transactions (e.g., Payments made, Checks to be Printed, Recurring Purchases Due to be Billed), or listed and/or sorted by their Vendor Classification Codes.
•Be sure to create a Vendor for each of the Departments of Revenue (each Taxing Authority) to which your Company must remit Sales Tax (see the Calculate & Remit Sales Taxes chapter for more information).
