I have a suggestion that I think would make our work faster and easier.
I have created a new asset account “prepaid expenses” in the settings> chart of accounts. However, unfortunately when creating a new supplier I had to choose only one control account that would redirect the paid amount to the supplier from accounts payable to prepaid expenses. I have many regular transactions and purchase invoices with this particular supplier and I needed to assign only this specific transaction to prepaid expenses. If I changed the control account in the supplier settings it redirects all previous transactions and that’s very problematic. Temporarily I had to create another supplier account with the same name in order to separate this particular transaction from the others. I think adding the ability to choose multiple control accounts when creating a new supplier account would resolve this issue and gives the accountant the flexibility to manage the suppliers’ accounts in one place under the same supplier account. Possibly, adding an extra new field in the receipt & payment form would help, where you choose the accounts payable> choose the supplier> choose the invoice> and then choose the control account whether to be recorded in the accounts payable or prepaid expenses. Or any other way you @lubos @tut sees fit to do the job.
