Odoo Invoices go straight to paid?

I'm having a problem whenever I create an invoice and validate it. The moment I validate, all invoice items go to outstanding credit and the amount due is equivalent to the total tax. At the top of the invoice I have a blue bar which says: "You have outstanding payments for this customer. You can allocate them to mark this invoice as paid." Each item appears in an "Outstanding Credits" list at the bottom of the invoice form. Why is this happening? What setting am I not understanding?

Have you checked that the receivable and payable accounts are set correctly? 

Apologies I had not set the accounts correctly. Thanks for the tip!

Yep they are correct. It's just that the amount appears in Credit instead of Debit. I have two Odoo instances running. The second is going to Debit and not giving me these problems - although I'm using the same accounts. I can't work out what's set differently.
