Suppliers are generally entities from whom you purchase goods and services and to whom you will, at some time, owe money for these goods or services.

Every new supplier that is created is assigned a unique account in the Accounts system, and all monetary transactions with the Supplier occur within this account. The current balance of a Supplier’s account is the amount owed by you to that Supplier. You cannot delete a Supplier if their account cannot also be deleted for accounting reasons.

A Supplier is referenced throughout the system by their Supplier code.

This is also called their Customer code.
