We try to follow accounting practices of the ACCA (Association of …Certified Accountants, blablabla)
They suggest the three financial documents representing one order
- Debit Note (if things are to be added)
- Credit Note (if things are being reduced/discounted)
logically a Debit Note is the same as an Invoice to some extend (it says that a customer has to pay money to a business for something) but practically its a little different though because a “Debit Note” indicates that it represents value that has been added to an order later in time.
My question being … would you suggest to either add a naming series to Sales Invoices (like DB-0000x) *then it still would be called Sales Invoice I think but at least through the number indicate being a Debit Note) or add a Doctype “Debit Note”
I’d rather not add any Doctypes if I don’t have to so I am a little pro “Naming Series Approach” but would be happy to hear some opinions and best practices used
