@dalacor I can’t see the problem that you are seeing. If you had an invoice for 12 and either
- went to COS and the refund of 2 went to COS - equals the 10
- went to inventory then to COS as the units are sold plus the refund balances out to 10
So nothing skewed, for any other expense its much more simplistic. I guess the question that arises, is it treated as one transaction or is it two separate transactions. Ignoring the forex aspect - if any invoice is paid and there is a subsequently amendment, does this make the original invoice/payment incorrect. I guess one can be pedantic to the last cent/penny, but based on @Sans_Souci comment " don’t amount to more than €10 a time" the percentage to the transaction value must be minuscule
An alternate approach (if getting the invoice right is so important) would be to amend the invoice with an extra line entry equalling the difference which is posted to a Transferwire Clearing account. Then the actual bank account amount is also posted to the Transferwire Clearing account so it zeros out.
@Sans_Souci how by using the simple method can you be storing problems for later?
I guess the thing that I can’t grasp how can these variations even occur. From decades of transferring funds around the world - I have never had one instance of variation. Aren’t the currency buy/sell locked in.
