Scenario: Prepare and process invoices

Welcome to Azure Beach Accountants and Financial Services (ABAFS). You work in the accounting department of this company.

One of their customers, ABC Grammar, has ordered some products for their end-of-year stage recital. You have been provided with the delivery docket (source document) for the transaction, but you need to prepare the associated tax invoice. Note that the tax invoice is needed by ABC Grammar before they can make the payment to ABC Stores. Task 1: Prepare an invoice
