We often pay in advance for items. This is entered as a payment on account. When the supplier invoice arrives it may be after the bank and/or VAT have be reconciled and locked.
At the moment it is not possible to allocate the advance payment without unlocking transactions (which for us is restricted by our accountants).
As no data is being changed, no change is made to the bank account or to the VAT submission, this restriction causes unnecessary work.
Would it be possible for the transaction lock to still allow the allocation of credit balances to invoices?
