When a supplier shipment is made, the supplier invoice is created in draft. If the supplier sends a single invoice for all shipments in the month, how to group all draft invoices into one
You need to use purchase_invoice_line_standalone (or something like that) module. This module allows to create just the lines of the invoice. Then you make a new invoice for that supplier and you select the lines you want.
I don’t understand how this module worked but I have just redone tests and it seems to cover my need.
thanks for your help
Here is the documetnation of the purchase_invoice_line_standalone module.
This is not only a frequent case in France, but in other EU countries as well given that
- The chargeable event is the supplier delivery, which means VAT is due and should be invoiced
- Many suppliers group their deliveries into a single monthly invoice, ordered by delivery note
Selecting anything more than a handful of standalone lines mixed between deliveries was overly tedious for us so we came up with a minimal merge invoice assistant that seems to work okay for us for the moment, though after some improvements arrive in supplier shipment receptions it could certainly be improved.
