In the accounts receivable portion of your Odoo software, you can prepare customer invoices, offer cash discounts, set up cash roundings, establish installment plans on customer invoices, automate deferred revenues, as well as edit and refund invoices.

The Odoo system will automate invoice design, using information from other documents such as sales contracts. For accountants, they can validate draft invoices, send invoice in batches, and keeping track of it all is easy. It’s all there for you to peruse in the software, any time.

Accounts payable

In the accounts payable portion of Odoo, a user can easily manage vendor bills, issue purchase receipts, arrange vendor payments by several methods, arrange payment of multiple bills at once, forecast future bills to pay, and keep track of employee expenses.

In order to set up vendor bills however, purchase data needs to be entered into Odoo. Create your purchase orders with as many products as you need. Upon receipt of product, you can then manage inventory from inside Odoo easily.

Tax reports
