Re: Account allocation

Usually, accountants would:
- create two invoice lines instead of one
- or create two invoices instead of one
- or split the journal entry, and keep the invoice as it is
- or create a journal entry as 'internal invoice'

Alternatively, you can separate your financial accounts and management accounts, by installing the analytical accounting module. Then I think the analytic distribution module should do what you are looking for.

Hello all,

I have a question about account allocation in the accounting module (V8).

Let Say I get a bill from my electric company for a certain location. At that location we have more than account (it's a manufacturing plant) that we need to allocate a portion of the total amount on the bill to.

Right now I can only allocate an invoice to a  single account.

Ideally I would like to be able to break out the allocation on the invoice and when payment is submitted a journal entry will be made in the correct journal for the appropriate account.

Is there anything out there similar to what I'm looking for ?
