I'm using v8,

But why would would odoo remove account distribution in version 9, wasnt the goal of version 9 to improve the accounting core?

I spent a good bit of time deciding whether to go with 8 or 9 (starting investigating odoo when it it tinyerp).

I'm glad k went with version 8

Unfortunately Odoo do not support this in easy manner.
But 2 approaches that can work for you are:
1) In Supplier Invoice keep 2 invoice lines with proper expense account set for each line
2) Create Supplier Invoice as usual, but go to related Journal Entry (can be found in Other Info tab) and modify it by splitting into required expense accounts

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 ?
