The topic will explain the process for creating a voucher that is to be paid via Draft, creating the Supplier Draft and will review the process for applying the Supplier Draft Payment to the outstanding Vouchers for the Supplier. This application will then record the Payment of the Supplier Draft.

Supplier-initiated drafts, which are prepared by the supplier, are sometimes called bills of exchange. The supplier specifies the due date, whether the draft is to be discounted, and the remittance procedure (paper, EFT, or Electronic Data Interchange (EDI)). Typically, the supplier's bank submits the draft to the customer's bank for processing.
