Project description

Beta License: AGPL-3 OCA/account-financial-tools Translate me on Weblate Try me on Runbot

This module allows to spread costs or revenues over a period defined in a contract.

When creating recurring invoices, the cost/revenue spread functionality is enabled on the invoice lines. The costs/revenues spread functionality is provided by module account_spread_cost_revenue.

Table of contents


Under Invoicing -> Configuration -> Accounting -> Spread Templates, create a new spread template.

  • Spread Type

  • Spread Balance Sheet Account

  • Journal


Create a contract that will generate recurring invoices. On its lines, the spreading right-arrow icon are displayed in dark-grey color.

Click on the spreading right-arrow icon. A wizard prompts to enter a Spread Template.

Click on Confirm button: the selected Spread Template will be automatically displayed.

Go back to the contract. The spreading functionality is now enabled on the contract line: the spreading right-arrow icon is now displayed in green color.

When generating an invoice from the contract, the spread table will be automatically created and linked to the respective invoice line. The spread date is the date from the next invoice date present in the contract. The period of the contract is copied to the spread. So if the contract is 3 months, it will also set the spread period to 3x1 months.
