A purchase order is typically used as a formal request to purchase a product or service from a supplier. It is an accounting method used to prevent fraudulent purchases or expenditure when there are a number of people in an organisation. They are also used to ensure that your company and suppliers have the correct information (such as banking details and delivery addresses).

Generally, you would generate a purchase order when you require a new product or service from a supplier, and have a director or senior staff member sign it to declare its legitimacy. In these cases, your accounting department would not make payments to suppliers unless there is a signed purchase order submitted with every invoice.
