Hi Torvald,

Odoo Version 8 had made bank reconciliation very easier.

We have a customer that uses Odoo for accounting. They have a multi currency, multi company situation. Especially important for them is to be able to record bank payments (incoming and outgoing) as they occur. They use Odoo v8.

The problem is that they get statements (on paper, one per payment) from the bank that a payment has been made of for example NOK 4700, which equates to USD 670 on the given day. They wish to record these sums. Then this should be matched to a customer invoice for example which was NOK 4700 but USD 680. So there is a USD 10 disagio which should be accounted for.

But they also want to be able to record bank fees. So the customer has paid a sum, but the bank takes some of it as fees. For example the customer may have paid NOK 4700 but the bank takes 5% so there are bank fees of NOK 235 so the amount on the account may be USD 660 where USD 10 is dusagio, the rest is bank fees (just some fictional numbers, but you get the point).

How can this be solved in Odoo? We have tried making a special module for them, but it seems like the amount of work involved in making it work 100% like they want is sizeable, so I'd really like it if there is another way.
