Well, Ahmed….
I presume, you do not do accounting yourself and so, the time needed for entering the data, searching for the proper journals, then the account may not seem to you a big hurdle. It is for accountant. Also, basically the fact that you cannot just enter the account and it is accepted, but need to enter AND select the entry in the list. 
The introduction of the journal as well as grouping element as payment method is something no accountant understands.It also does not fit with the reality of the accounting, as explained in my previous e-mail.
Furthermore, the management of foreign currency, that does not basically allow to enter a document in a foreign currency is a major point that can be a show stopper. And, as you know, the CFO is very often the decision maker in an ERP implementation.

Eva,,,

Our previous answers are related to Odoo defulat functions :)

But I think this point need some enhancement in Odoo, also muti-compenies and financial reports functionality :)

But it is not showstopper issues.

I believe I do not understand, why I need to have 2 elements that do not necessarily represent the reality in order to be able to manage payments in foreign currency:

1. Why isn’t it possible to enter, for a payment in foreign currency the amount and the exchange rate
2. Why do I have to manage a journal on the top of my account. What is the journal good for?

Hi all,


I wanted to know if I am doing something wrong with the journals, accounts and foreign currency

1. It’s not possible to pay (using the menu point pay) in a foreign currency if you do not have a journal in that currency.
2. If you want a journal in a foreign currency, you need to have an account in that very currency.
3. Even with an account in foreign currency, you cannot reconcile in foreign currency. The reconciliation is always done in the local currency, creating so exchange differences on each and every single reconciliation
4. If you have an approval concept and use a temporary account on which you first post the payment until the bank/credit institute confirms it, you have to create a corresponding journal and account.
5. If you have multiple payment institute (typically: bank, postbank, paypal, AFEX, FOREX) and work in 3 currencies (EUR, GBP, USD), you will then have to create for each payment institute a 6 GL accounts and 6 journals. So, in my case, 30 GL accounts and journals.

So, I guess, there is (at least) one thing I do wrong. Please help me.
