Maintain Invoice register

The invoice register is used to pre-register invoices when they arrived in the company with some information (vendor account, invoice number, amount and approval person). Then, invoices are transferred in pool of invoices to be approved. This helps in keeping a track of the invoices that were received from the vendors, out of those received how many of them are awaiting approval & how many have been invoiced.
