- Company A = Parent
- Company B = Child of A
- Company C = Child of A
- Each company has a warehouse with separate locations.
- Each company has a shop.
- Each company has it's chart of accounts generated.
- Each company has their own users
- Each company has unique and shared products/customers
The first issue is that every product must have a single income account. So if this product is sold by both child companies, it will always have the income account for the parent company.
When a user for the child company tries to make a sales order->invoice, you cannot validate the invoice because the accounts no longer match. When looking at the invoices, the products have the parent account because they must be sold by both child companies. The invoice account is set as the correct child company. Manually changing the accounts allows validation but this is tedious and unlikely to happen on a daily basis. Manually changing the journal the system defaults to also appears to work but is equally unlikely to happen on a daily basis.
Is there no way to have the accounts match the user creating the sales order? If child company user creates sales order, it should automatically apply these invoices and journals to the child companies.
