Posting date is the date when the order is receiver or invoiced. Document date is used to calculate the due date usually same as posting date

One More thing in posted Purchase Receive and Posted Purchase Invoice both have document date but both has different dates then which date system will take for due date calculation ?
If your actual invoice is 1-7-18 you need to change your posting date to that and post it. What do you mean mention.

Posted Receipt or Invoice will take the value from the purchase order. So during posting of the receipt and invoice you could have different values. The due date calculation is based on the posting date you have on the invoice.

The Document Date together with the Payment Term calculates the Due Date. Usually this is the date that is on the received invoice.
Posting Date is for the period the transaction is posted in, often the same as the Document/Invoice Date. You could however receive an invoice dated on 9-8-18 that concerns costs in a previous period (telephone bill of july), then the Posting Date could be set to 31-7-18. It is then taken into consideration when bookkeeping/accounting produces reports for july...
