Hi All! I am able to use HR Expense for expenses done by employees using their own money and that works great. I trying to figure how to enter expenses done on the company debit cart. For example, I got to Office Depot and get some office supplies for $200, then I get some fuel at some random gas station for $50 all on the company debit card. What entries do I create in openerp when I get the office later that day and how to I reconcile with my bank statement?
Edit: The key here is that HR expense creates an AP entry due to the employee who enters the expense, how can I do the same without the AP entry since the expense is not reimbursable?
Edit2: After testing the last solution mentioned in the comment (create a new journal with Debit on expense and credit on Bank) it still does not work. Openerp seems to be OK with for the journal when creating the HR expense, but when generating the GL entries, it still generates an AP entry for the Employee. In fact if no AP account is set for the employee, I get this error Error: The employee must have a payable account set on his home address.
So so far there is no way to have openerp create an expense that is not payable to the employee. Still looking for a solution.
