What Is a Purchase Order Log?

A Purchase Order Log is a table or spreadsheet that comprises all documents authorizing purchases sent from buyers to the seller. Any business, large or small, must keep track of the documentation that officially confirms the order - whether you receive a lot of orders or purchase a lot of items for your organization. There are several reasons to draft a log for a Purchase Order:

  • You will be able to monitor your own orders or orders of your loyal customers and anticipate their needs and purchases by restoking;
  • You can manage orders more effectively once you see them in the form of the table - a visual representation of all transactions you have been a part of is very helpful for your finances;
  • You will discover discrepancies - it is necessary when reconciling financial statements and reporting operations to appropriate authorities.
