In manual reconciliation, how to 'keep-open' residual amounts instead of 'write-off', like in payment vouchers?
In payment voucher, if the amounts do not match exactly, it is possible to fully reconcile invoices and keep the difference open. In manual reconciliation, the only available options are 'Write-Off' and 'Partial Reconcile'.
I want to do full reconciliation and keep the remaining the difference amount open, like in payment voucher but the payments are already posted and can cannot be split. I thought of two options:
Create new reconciliation module similar to
account_reconcile. It should create a new entry in a special journal 'Reconciliation Entries' with receivable debit and credit equal to the difference to allow reconciling one line and keep the other line open. A due date, name and comment can be added to the open line.
Select 'Write-Off' and set 'Accounts Receivable' as the write-off account instead of an expense account.
Is there a better method to handle this issue? Are there any consequences or side-effects for the above solutions.
