Bookings that are invoiced to Travel Agents require a reference on the invoice - such as the TA booking number and/or a "voucher number" permitting chargeback to occur.
If the agent booked through the GDS the TA booking number comes through to MEWS automatically into the 'Origin' field. Can this number be automatically shown on the invoice as a TA reference number? (i.e. in its own special field in the invoicing section?). This number is also necessary in the Xero API, to be shown in the reference field on Xero invoices, so it displays on monthly travel agent statements we generate in Xero.
Travel Agents will not pay invoices unless their reference numbers are on their invoices and statements.

Include a mandatory booking reference/Voucher number field when invoices are issued to Travel Agents or companies. The booking reference number should export to the accounting report & Accounting ledger and also to Accounting integration (xero, sage, etc).
Using the booking reference is easiest for accounts to mark invoices as paid and reconcile payments.
