Re: "Reverse payment" doesn't include overpayments?

has anyone already found an answer to this interesting question?

Since nobody seemed to have an answer ready, I've discussed with Chris how to solve this issue. What we came up with has been documented as a separate workflow in the LedgerSMB book (http://book.ledgersmb.org/ - section 39.7). Doing so was a good reason to write more on the book (highly needed anyway).

To summarize: create a special AR/AP transaction, pay that transaction using the overpayment and move the resulting income/expense to the cash account using a GL transaction.
