Re: Pre-paid inventor

IMHO the common solution for this kind of problems is to use a "internal transfers"
account. (I'm not sure if I use the correct term. In Dutch we call this "kruisposten".)

When paying in advance you book:

 checking account: Credit
 internal transfers: Debet

If you connect the internal transfers account with AR_paid, AP_paid, you can "pay"
the real invoice using the internal transfers account as a pseudo checking account.

How to handle correclty pre-paid inventory?

Can you be more specific?  What do you mean "pre-paid?"

What I mean is you pay for supplies/goods first before you receive them.
Eg. Supplier sends me "proforma invoice" and I pay it but I don't receive the goods till maybe after two months; meantime I have to reconcile the bank statement.
