Re: Pre-paid inventor

In any case... it should be a liabilty account ("internal transfers" as mentioned by Marjan is), because they owe you money, until they deliver.

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:

Âchecking account: Credit
Âinternal 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.
