Hi Saratvamsi,

Thank you for sharing your perspective!

I have marked your post as helpful. This is because it encouraged me to go back to the "initial question" (business requirement) and think "from a fresh perspective".

In the course of this thread, we got "tied-down" with the details, explanation, justification of ONE suggestion which was given by me, as a "starting input" ("a draft idea").
Having said the above, it is by rigorous questioning of an idea can we bring robust solutions. Furthermore, questioning of an idea helps in learning and retention.

PS - I agree that more information is needed w.r.t. the business scenario and business requirement.

Dear Mr. Typewriter and Mr. Eklavya,

Interesting discussion. Innovation Vs Convention. Honestly, my expertise is not enough to side with one.

But just want to share my perspective.

By creating a billing document, we are setting a timer for our customer, ie terms of payment. The mail purpose of billing the customer after goods received by him is to give him time to liquidate, keep his margin and pay the rest to us. By this way, we can reduce the inventory levels of the dealer or stockist or who ever it is and make it more profitable.

This is more important in cases where, after doing the PGI, goods take good 5-7 days, eg overseas customers and heavy goods that cant be transported through air.

Regarding the below requirement, it is all about country laws, unless we know it thoroughly, it would not be appropriate to offer a solution.

Please feel free to share your views. Also welcome experts who have dealt with this before and found a solution. It would be a very good learning.

Warm regards,
