Thanks Ferdinand,

In my opinion this "account_anglo_saxon" does two different things in one module that perhaps should be split into separate modules:
1.- Posts price differences between cost of goods received and supplier invoice
2.- Defers the recognition of Cost of Goods Sold to the time when the customer invoice is accepted, and not when the product is delivered.
I think "Cost of Goods Sold" (better cost of goods purchased) must be posted at the time goods are received
otherwise the average price will not be correct or has to be recalculated - confuses everybody (keep it simple)
we had long arguments why it shouldn't be possible to determine landed costs in advance - basically it always turns out that
  • people have not done so before
  • people had wrong calculations (fright and custom tax has be posted at expense accounts only)
    without including landed costs all calculations and margins for goods to be sold are wrong
    which might not matter if the additional landed costs are small. - it's a decision of the company if it is worthwhile.
    using "anglo-saxon" means that only price-differences between estimated and actual costs are posted as expenses/revenues
  • people are comparing purchase prices without being aware of the influence of (hidden) INCOTERMS.

on the long run the estimates of landing cost became very precise and hence also the quality of calculation of margins.

As for landed costs, I will look into it.

I've been struggling with the "account_anglo_saxon" module in the scenario of drop shipment, because this module totally ignores the logistic route of the sale and messes up the account journal entries...

Thanks,
Jordi.

IMO it has nothing to do with "anglo saxon" - (a naming issue)
this evaluation method is used in Austria too
remarks
  • In v61. it didn't work correctly

  • you probably need landed cost module too to get it right.

Hello,

Currently the module "account_anglo_saxon" provides a feature by which the variances between the cost of product received and the invoiced price provided by the supplier will be posted to the "Price Difference Account" defined in the product, when the supplier invoice is accepted.

However I can see that this functionality should be available to other accounting standards, such as the Continental, and not only to the Anglo-Saxon accounting. 

What is your opinion?


Regards,
