Hey all!

I tried to call this question within the Accounting Roadmap V9 treat, but noone anwers.
Hope it is okay to try it again within a new treat, because it is a burnig question for me.

What I want to know is, how the most used accounting practis goes in your country?
And what I want to reach is, that Odoo overthink the accounting practice, even if there is a way which makes it easier in every country around the world.

So please feel free to post your most practiced accounting way in your country.

Example:
In Odoo you have to make a minimum of two lines for each move. One for the credit and one for the debit.

Invoice 
Name 
Partner 
Account 
Due date 
Debit 
Credit 
Analytic Distribution 
Amount Currency 
Tax Account 
Tax/Base Amount 
Status 
Reconcile
Partial Reconcile
          19450.00 19450.00              
SAJ/2014/006 Test invoice 1 Test invoice 1 ASUSTeK X11002 Debtors - (test) 11/13/2014 0.00 19450.00   0.00   0.00 Balanced A2  
SAJ/2014/006 Test invoice 1 Server with raid 10 and 2048ECC ram ASUSTeK X2001 Product Sales - (test)   19450.00 0.00   0.00   0.00 Balanced    


In most programms here in germany it is standard to do this in only one line, but we can also do a split. So it looks like this:

Easy Way:
Invoice 
Name 
Partner 
Amount
Due date 
Account Debit
Account Credit
Analytic Distribution 
Amount Currency 
Tax Account 
Tax/Base Amount 
Status 
Reconcile
Partial Reconcile
SAJ/2014/006 Test invoice 1 Test invoice 1 ASUSTeK 19450.00 11/13/2014 X11002 Debtors - (test) X2001 Product Sales - (test)   0.00   0.00 Balanced A2  

Split:
Invoice 
Name 
Partner 
Amount
Due date 
Account Debit
Account Credit
Analytic Distribution 
Amount Currency 
Tax Account 
Tax/Base Amount 
Status 
Reconcile
Partial Reconcile
SAJ/2014/006 Test invoice 1 Test invoice 1 ASUSTeK 19450.00 11/13/2014 X11002 Debtors - (test)     0.00   0.00 Balanced A2
