It is quite common that companies require fees for processing dunning.
Usually the fee is a fixed amount but it could also be a percentage of the due amount.
There could be some taxes that applies on the fees.
The fee should appear on the dunning letter.
A new model
account.dunning.fee is created to define the fee. It is composed of:
- a link to a service product
- a link to a journal (with debit/credit account as intermediary account)
- a computation method selection:
- based on list price
- based on percentage
An optional link to
account.dunning.fee is added to
If the field is filled when processing a dunning at this level, an accounting move is created to debit the receivable account of the fee amount (with a maturity date set to today) and credit the journal account. The created move has as origin a record from a new model which links uniquely the dunning and the level to ensure that fee is created only once per level.
Once the receivable line is reconciled a second move is created between the journal account, the product revenue account and the eventual tax accounts.
The dunning letter module is adapted to show the fees if the fees module is installed.
