I know that this topic was raised a couple of years ago, and I am wondering if there has been any further thought on this as the restriction on the account ranges that sales categories can be applied is, frankly one of the few really annoying features of what is generally an excellent system.
Our problem is that when we are raising customer invoices for training courses, part of the fee is club income, but part of the fee is the payment for the examination at the end and should therefore be credited to a balance sheet account - Exam Fees Control, or to the Purchase Ledger account Credit of the Supplier of the Exams - I don’t mind which.
At the present however, the sales category must go to a P&L account in the sales range, the Invoice from the Supplier of the exams must go to a P&L account in the overheads range and them we have a journal trail to deal with.
I hear Monty Python - ‘My Brain Hurts’.
Surely there has to be a better way than this.
Advice would be appreciated
