Pay an invoice in advance

on 1/23/15, 9:00 AM 677 views

Hello, I have Odoo 8.

When I create an invoice, then Odoo gives me the possibility to pay this. But I need to do the opposite: register a payment (account.voucher) and then when I create an invoice, assign the payment to this to put the invoice in "paid" state. How can I do this? Thanks!

Since at the time of payment the invoice number is not known, you need to use a tool Reconciliation.


  1. register a payment
  2. create and validate invoice
  3. go to "Manual Reconciliation" and reconcile both
  4. after these steps Invoice status = paid



Thanks! A little question: when I see the payment, in the part of "Corrective invoices and receipts transactions" I don't see the invoice. Why?
