You can link vendors together using the master vendor/sub vendor feature in Accounts Payable.
- you can assign a single vendor as a master vendor to multiple sub vendors
- a master vendor cannot already exist as a sub vendor for another master vendor
- vendors designated as sub vendors cannot be assigned as master vendors to other sub vendor
For example, when entering a transaction for a master vendor, the system checks the AP reference number to make sure it has not already been used by the master vendor or any of the associated sub vendors. If it has, the system displays a warning and disallows the entry. See Checking for Unique AP Reference Numbers for more information.
