The available supplier fields are part of the supplier management solution provided by Payhawk. They enhance the data for each company supplier by providing additional information about that supplier which your company considers important and, therefore, requires to be filled in.

Adding your existing supplier data to Payhawk

Payhawk accountants and administrators can populate the existing supplier records of the company manually by using the Excel template file. For more information, see the article about manually importing and exporting suppliers in Payhawk.

Suppliers can also be synced automatically if you have connected Payhawk to your ERP system (accounting software). For more information:

Viewing the consolidated supplier data

The management of the supplier records happens in the Suppliers app which acts as a single source of truth for your supplier data. For more information, see the section about the benefits of the Payhawk supplier management solution.

Available supplier data and operations

Each supplier in Payhawk has a Details and an Expense categorization section.

  • The Details section includes general, payment, contact, and additional information about a supplier.

  • The Expense categorization section includes information about the pre-defined category for the expenses associated with that supplier.

For more information, see the suppliers overview article for accountants.
