Here is my scenario:
I have a partner Company A which have 2 affiliates companies : Company B and C.
I send one invoice to Company B and another one to Company C
I received one payment from Company A to pay for the 2 previous invoices.
Do you have a solution to enter the payment from Company A and reconcile the invoices to B and C ?
We are considering the use of res_partner_affiliate to structure the Company/Affiliate relationship.
Reconciliation will be based on the AR account+associated partner so you cannot directly pay an invoice for another partner
Original vouchers are similar to:
DR AR - company B 100
CR sales 100
DR AR - company C 200
CR sales 200
If the mother company is always paying for the children you might want to share the AR account in all partners (but not mandatory see below)
You probably have to go through an intermediate voucher (intercompany payment) such as:
DR AR - Company A 300
CR AR - Company B 100
CR AR - Company C 200
You could simply create a journal with the account AR for company A.
Then you can issue your payment against line 1 and reconcile the other 2 lines with the original invoices
Since partner_id must match to reconcile a payment with an invoice, I have in the past supported this by:
1. Overriding the definition of res_partner.commercial_partner_id so it can be edited.
2. Adding commercial_partner_id to a res_partner form view so it shows on the UI.
3. Telling users that Company B and Company C must be setup with Company A as the Commercial Entity (commercial_partner_id).
Invoices for Company B or Company C will now be booked in the Sales Journal as partner_id = Company A.
When a payment for Company A is entered, invoices for Company A and the two affiliates will show as being able to be paid.
