In daily accounting operations, we need to pay supplier invoice by checks. Odoo does support this feature to great extent.User needs to install account_check_writing module to enable this feature in Odoo. With this module, while paying against Supplier Invoice by checks we can print checks in three formats i.e.Top, Middle and Bottom.
We would also need to set up check layout for company which can be found under Company information and enable Journals (Payment Methods) in order to support this feature which can be found under Journals Configuration under Accounting. In this section ,We need to set Journal Type as – Bank and Checks and put a tick against “Allow Check Writting”
How to get it to work:
In order to pay a Supplier Invoice by check we would follow the below steps.
1) In Supplier Payment under Accounting create a new entry with the necessary details along with the payment method (here you can see only those Journals against which we have set type as “Bank and Checks” and enabled “Allow Check Writing”). As soon as you select Supplier, all open invoices against selected supplier will get populated in grid (One2Many) view.
2)Click on Validate button. The Supplier invoice is paid and journal entries are recorded against it. You can print it now from list view either in Top, Middle or Bottom format.
