An important decision to make when entering the purchase order is if you’re posting a valuated goods receipt or not.
With a valuated goods receipt, the asset is capitalized when you post the goods receipt with the value defined in the purchase order. When receive the invoice, the system will adjust the value of the capitalized asset if required.
With the nonvaluated goods receipt, the system still uses the goods receipt date as the asset capitalization date. In this case, the goods receipt isn’t valuated , this is the more common case for assets.
