 How does it work?

1. When an EMAC Purchase invoice is sent to Xero, a new approved purchase is created in Xero with the exact EMAC Purchase invoice details.
2. Purchase invoices are sent to Xero as Purchases "Approved" .
3. If a Purchase invoice is edited in EMAC, it will also get updated in Xero if no payment has been applied to the purchase in Xero.
4. If the supplier contact does not exist in Xero, the information on the EMAC Purchase invoice will create a new Supplier Contact in Xero.
5. The Xero status can be changed in EMAC by viewing the Purchase invoice in EMAC.
