RE: Journal Entries and VAT handlingby
You can do this easily via our ‘account_move_import’ module (cf. apps.odoo.com and pending OCA PR) and we have several customer using this to do ‘miscellanuous operations’ including vat postings.
You effectively need to specify the tax code, but it’s easy to calculate the correct amounts via formula’s since you start from an excel file to generate the input for the ‘account_move_import’.

Subject: Journal Entries and VAT handling
Our customer has some postings they wish to make directly in journal entries. But they also want VAT to be handled, and therein lies the problem.
In the journal entries form you can only specify tax codes for the move lines, not taxes. So it seems they will have to calculate the tax amounts themselves and make the extra postings, which involves a lot of extra work.
So the question is: Is there any way in Odoo to do journal enttries where you can select a tax so that a posting with for example the 25% VAT amount is made automatically? Have I missed something here?
