Return to Vendor (V3I) (Return PO)

The return to vendor process begins with a requirement to return an item to a vendor. The initial activity is to request a Returns Material Authorization (RMA) from the vendor. This is a manual step and the RMA number will be entered into a text field in the return PO. The Buyer will then create a Return PO in the system. The return PO is similar to a standard PO except for the return flag which sets up the return delivery to enable shipment of the item(s) back to the vendor.

The Return PO confirmation goes to the Vendor and the Return Delivery is sent to the Shipping department where the item(s) are picked and shipped back along with a Delivery Note. When the Shipping department creates the delivery the item(s) are relieved from inventory. A credit memo is generated which relieves the liability to the vendor.
