Odoo is the world's easiest all-in-one management software. It includes hundreds of business apps:
CRM | e-Commerce | Accounting | Inventory | PoS | Project management | MRP | etc.
In some cases the customer pays a littlebit less or more than invoiced. Sometimes it is 0.1 or 0.05 euro. I know there is a function in the financial module for write-off. If I use this function and give the accountnumber for the write-off the write-off doesn't take place. I am working with Dutch scheme. Is this a bug? Or am I doing something wrong?
Update 11 March '13 based on comment of Mohammed Ali and further testing: In my situation the result was "The Write-Off could be found on the Profit and Loss Report. So far so good. But one problem remained: the write-off amount (In our case 0.01) was still to be found in the Aged Partner Balance report. That's should be zero right?"
First we set the write-off to "Write-off" 498000. At first we have set our internal type to 'regular' and account to expense. A second test we made a new account 498001 with part of the parent account "Other Income and Expenses", same parameters. A thirth test we have set 498001 type to receivable and we set account to 'receivable'.
Additional testing with differences in type and account give the result (or look alikes): "ValidateError Error occurred while validating the field(s) user_type,type: Configuration Error! You can not select an account type with a deferral method different of "Unreconciled" for accounts with internal type "Payable/Receivable"!
The result of the three tests is the same. Write off account 0.01 but the account payable has still 0.01 open.
Also, I'm really wondering if I should set the 'allow reconciliation' option for this account to active. Could somebody explain to me what this option does?
The result of a search on the account gives:
The most common mistake would be: forgot to check the 'Full Reconcile' checkbox. Forgotting this would make the payment balance value still available for payment and the invoice status still 'Open'
This is an example: A customer paid 301 for 301.88 invoice and the 0.88 difference will be written-off, you will need to make sure the following things:
- enter the actual paid amount: 301
- check 'Full Reconcile' so allocation would become 301.88 (the full amount)
- select 'Reconcile Payment Balance'
- select the counterpart account e.g: 'Debt write off', for this example I just use 'Reserve...'
I tested this and works even for difference as small as 0.01
If in some case you forgot to check the Full Reconcile:
- just pay the invoice again with '0' as paid amount.
- select Full Reconcile in Invoice(s) you want to be written-off
- Reconcile Payment Balance
- enter the Counterpart account. This would finish the workflow/invoice state to 'Paid'
