How to balance customer and supplier invoices from the same customer ?

Hi, What about if customers and supplier are same company ?

Senario :

Customer : Agrolait

  • INVOICE SAJ/2013/001 = 100 EUR
  • INVOICE SAJ/2013/002 = 200 EUR

    Total Amount Due = 300 EUR

    Supplier : Agrolait

  • INVOICE EXJ/2013/001 = 50 EUR
  • INVOICE EXJ/2013/002 = 50 EUR

    Total Amount to pay = 100 EUR

    Amount to recive should be 200 EUR

  • these invoices have not the same maturity date; they cannot be netted against each other.

    Usually, these invoices should not be netted against each others. (e.g. if there is a litigation on an invoice, the other is still fully due).

    If you want to reconcile these invoices, you should do a manual journal entry:

    • account receivable: credit 100
    • account payable: debit 100

    I find strange that "they shouldn't be netted against each other" while the page view of a customer payment will clearly allow you to reconcile against customer invoices and supplier invoices for the same company at once (debits and credits section). Why does OpenERP make it so easy to do if "it shouldn't be done"?
