ACCOUNTING - Odoo 16 Enterprise Book


The users will get separate platforms to manage the sales and purchase receipts in the Odoo Accounting module. A sales receipt is an official record or a simple receipt of the amount that you have already been paid for the items or services you have provided to those who purchased them. Usually, receipts are given after payment as payment proof and it is not a valid document for taxation. Only the invoice will be considered as a valid document for taxation. If you want to create sales receipts manually, you can go to the Customers menu of the Accounting module where you can find the Receipts option.

The list view of this platform is shown above with the details of the Number, Customer, Invoice Date, Due Date, Activities, Tax Excluded, Total, Total in Currency, Payment Status, and Status. You can upload a sales receipt to the system using the Upload button. For creating a new sales receipt, click on the Create button.

The creation of a new sales receipt is similar to that of the creation of an invoice in Odoo. In the corresponding fields, you can specify the Customer, Delivery Address, Reference, Invoice Date, Payment Reference, Payment Terms, and Journal.

Under the Invoice Lines tab, add the products on which you want to generate receipts one by one using the Add a Line button. The product will be displayed in the list with the Product name, Label, Account, Analytic, Quantity, UoM, Price, Taxes, and Subtotal details. Corresponding journal items to record the payment details can be observed in the Journal Items tab as shown below with the Account, Label, Analytic, Debit, and Credit details.

Once the sales receipt is confirmed, you can register the customer payment using the Register Payment button.

In the Vendor menu of the Accounting module, you will see another Receipt button that records the purchase receipts of your company. Once you confirm a purchase order, receive products, and payment is made, the purchase receipt can be generated. You can record a purchase receipt manually from the Account module. Go to the Vendor menu and click on the Receipt option. The configuration of the sales receipt and purchase receipt are almost similar. The changes in the purchase receipt are highlighted in the screenshot below.

In a purchase receipt, you need to mention the Vendor, Bill Reference, Bill Date, Accounting Date, and Recipient Bank. Click on the Confirm button to confirm the receipt. This feature is generally used in Odoo when you pay the invoice directly with your company’s money for an expense.
