[Accounting-Stock] Received Goods to temp Clearing Account, Valuate in stock after Bill is paid

in German Accounting it is necessary to book Goods that have been received but are still not paid to a temporary account.

Onyl after the bill from the supplier has been paid it is allowed to book the received goods to the configured Stock Valuation account.

In SAP the temporary account is referred to as "WE/RE-Account" (clearing account goods recieve/invoice recieve).

Is / can that be handled by odoo in any way?

The possibily to book received goods via a clearing account before valuating them is stock is crucial for proper use of the Warehouse functionality in Germany.

Many Thanks in Advance.

This is the Anglo Saxon Accounting option (a checkbox on the res.company record).

See https://www.odoo.com/documentation/user/9.0/inventory/management/reporting/valuation_methods_anglo_saxon.html

Odoo will store the value of good in an interim 'inventory receivind clearning' or 'goods received not vouchered' or 'uninvoiced goods received' account (yours to define), moving them out when the Vendor Invoice is validated.
