after sale order confirm and validation , the account entries will be like

partner account : debit =100 company revenue (product sale account) : credit =100.
so this should be type income. ,deduct from partner account against income account of company

hope this will clear.

Many Thanks.

hello, sir i appreciate you answer but if we go to Profit and Loss report in accounting Reports you will find Cost of Sales in income section but this is wrong here according to accounting principals

Cost of sales is definetely not an income! This is an expense representing the costs of the service/product sold.
