AP Deductions vs Accounts Receivable Fines

  • AP Deductions can be specifically identified in the Associated Deductions table when viewing the Invoice details page in Lavante.

  • Accounts Receivable fines from Kroger can also be viewed in Lavante. These will show up as Invoices in Lavante, as they are invoices from Kroger to you.
