def _amount_residual(self, cr, uid, ids, name, args, context=None):
        result = {}
        for invoice in self.browse(cr, uid, ids, context=context):
            result[invoice.id] = 0.0
            if invoice.move_id:
                for m in invoice.move_id.line_id:
                    if m.account_id.type in ('receivable','payable'):
                        result[invoice.id] += m.amount_residual_currency
            #prevent the residual amount on the invoice to be less than 0
            result[invoice.id] = max(result[invoice.id], 0.0)            
        return result

This is the amount that is left unpaid after all payments ware reconciled with the invoice. With other words, the customer needs to pay this remaining amount of mony so we can close the invoice.

Hi Jordan, If this is the amount that is left unpaid why is my balance gets doubled after validation?
