Thanks, @netconuk. Good explanation. I don’t think there is a way to do what you describe. Your situation is that when you create a sales invoice, you have recorded a financial transaction that debits
Accounts Receivable (and the appropriate customer’s sub account) and credits an income account (perhaps
Sales or something similar). Accrual accounting recognizes the revenue at that point, even though you have not been paid by a customer. That revenue is offset by the asset of the receivable.
Receiving money is the next transaction, debiting your
At Home account and crediting
Accounts Receivable. The essential ability was to be able to link an incoming payment to an outstanding receivable.
Accounts Receivable is thus cleared and plays no further role in this particular scenario.
If you then want to move the money to
At Bank, that is an unrelated transaction from an accounting point of view. So Manager no longer knows or cares where the money came from. Any given transfer could have been from any previous source.
Bank Accounts tab is still being worked on by @lubos, but will eventually allow you to do something similar to what you want. The approach will be to eliminate the
At Home account and consider those payments you are holding as uncleared deposits until after you have deposited them and they appear on your statement. This is currently somewhat functional, but not complete, and is tied in with ongoing work on bank reconciliation. So there are no Guides yet to fully describe it.
