Re: Supplier payment reconciliation

This question comes very often. The correct way of managing this type of reconciliation is a two step process:

1. When you pay, you do not have yet the confirmation from the bank, so you should be using a temporary account (clearing account) where you put the amounts paid. 
2. When you have the confirmation from the bank (in form of the bank statement), you can reconcile the temporary account (clearing account).

Hope this answers your question about the treatment of supplier payment reconciliation. 

Good luck

We are working with a customer on Odoo v8 implementation.

We have the following workflow:

1. The system should receive supplier invoices.
2. The accountant pays the supplier invoice, for example via account voucher. An accounting move is created in the system.
3. Bank statements are imported and reconciled in the new reconciliation interface. A statement line of for example $ -1900 means it's a supplier payment.

Now, our problem is this: an accounting move is created both when the invoice is paid (step 2) and when it is reconciled (step 4). Is there some part of reconciliation I'm missing? I thought that it would be possible to just connect the statement line with the existing transaction that is already in the system. 

Or are we not supposed to use the Supplier Payment (i.e. account.voucher) interface at all? But should we then create one bank statement per payment? And how are we then supposed to handle end of month bank statement reconciliation?
