Two Way Match

When approving supplier’s invoices for payment, a two-way match reconciles the purchase order and the supplier’s invoice, in order to determine whether the invoice should be paid. This is essential where there is no receipt, for example for rental or other ongoing payments without physical performance, but may be extended to lower value categories. Most organisations seek a three-way match in most situations to confirm that the work has been done. See also Invoice, Recipient Generated.
