Purchase Order Number ?
In case this isn't obvious to Janeks:
When you're selling to a company and planning to invoice after
delivery, it is often required to have a written statement of the
purchase. This ensures that the employee has authority to make the
purchase on behalf of the company, and prevents disputes where the
company says they don't want to pay for something you've sold them.
The written authorisation for the purchase is called a "purchase
order", and in any big company they'll have a standard form which is
headed by the company name, address and (usually) logo. The purchase
order form states the employee's name, a description of what is to be
purchased from the supplier, and which might be counter-signed by the
boss; each purchase order will typically have a unique number. If the
supplier has a copy of this form the company cannot in court wriggle
out of paying by saying "but we didn't order that".
