I have a scenario which I'm not sure how to handle in LedgerSMB.
I have an customer invoice which is settled, but is a penny out. The
customer's accounting system has a rounding error (these things get
everywhere), and basically they are paying me £0.01 less than this
particular invoice calls for.
However, I handled this by creating a ledger called "Minor Order
Revaluations". I use this to "pay" for any small differences between
the amount sent and the amount invoiced (as part of the normal payment
process). I get it on vendor invoices from online companies as well
though. They sometimes seem to take a penny too little from my CC
Contrast this with a similar technique for fees though.
Suppose you received a payment via Paypal/Credit card or something where
there is a fee. I would handle this by having a "Credit Card" ledger
which tracks payments, plus a "Paypal discounts" ledger where we store
the fees. In this case show the full payment against the invoice and
then add a ledger entry to deduct the fees.
It all comes down to what you want to show though - it would be equally
valid to show the full payment against the invoice and then use a ledger
entry to correct the payment - I just like to highlight to my customers
how nice I have been by showing their discount on the bottom of the
