Processing invoices with the Coupa integration

When you process invoices using the Coupa integration, you follow the normal procedures for verifying, coding and approval, with these additional features:

  • Processing invoices without line-item tables.
  • Support for billing.

Processing invoices without line-item tables

No special action is required to process invoices without line-item tables. Although, Coupa does not support invoices without line-items, ReadSoft Online automatically creates a line-item based on the header fields to workaround this issue.

Handling of tax rates

The Coupa integration supports the capture of tax data and multiple tax rates in headers and line items. No matter where the tax data is found on the invoice, the integration makes sure the tax data is mapped to the invoice summary in Coupa. When multiple tax rates are found on an invoice, each is mapped to a separate tax line (TaxDetail element) in the invoice summary.

When ReadSoft Online sends invoice data to Coupa, that category of the TaxDetail element is set to an empty space. More information about how tax fields are mapped between systems is available here.
