Can one offset a purcahse invoice against a sales invoice for the same contact?

Hi there,

We have a contact who is a customer and vendor. How can we offset the vendor invoice against the customer invoice? I.E. Reconcile the two records? Will I have to do this via a journal entry or can it be done via a gui interface?

thanks

This is not possible - and in switzerland it is also not allowed.
You need a manual account move which will transmit the amount from one account to the other.
Than you can reconcile the sales and purchase invoices with the new move.

With this module we solved that problem. You must see if the regulations of your country allow it.
