Re: Most used accounting practice in your countries

Hi Mathias,

The reason for having 2 lines is that it simplifies the work when you have to enter more complex documents:

1. When you have the taxes, you can just enter a new line with the taxes
2. When you have an invoice with multiple lines, you have the control account for creditor in one line and all other accounts on multiple lines.
3. You can enter separate information (for instance text, etc) per line, what cannot be done when you only have one line.
4. You can enter the controlling information for each line separately (analysis account)

Therefore, it is the best practice to separate the lines. It is the method of choice of all bigger accounting system like SAP and Oracle

The part of Odoo that needs profound revision is the treatment of foreign currency and the treatment of sums when working with foreign currency. At the moment, Odoo sums in list views lines with different foreign currencies instead of making a sum per currency and showing the sum per currency in the bottom.
Also, the fact that the currency appear almost nowhere on standard lists is a problem as soon as you have to deal with foreign countries, even just for expenses.

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  
SAJ/2014/006 Test invoice 1 Test invoice 1 ASUSTeK 19000.00 11/13/2014   X2001 Product Sales - (test)   0.00   0.00 Balanced A2  
SAJ/2014/006 Test invoice 1 Test invoice 1 ASUSTeK 450.00 11/13/2014   X2002 Service Sales - (test)   0.00   0.00 Balanced A2
