Possibility to add a reconciliation rule between an Intercompany account and an Investment account

It would be beneficial if it was possible to enter reconciliation rules between Intercompany accounts and Investment accounts (defined with Investment code I (Acquisition calculation).

Both of the IC-accounts and Investment accounts are used for group companies. In the function "Shareholdings and Investments in Group companies" we are using the same company codes as when reporting Intercompany transactions. Then it should also be possible to enter a reconciliation rule that the amounts reported in the shareholdings and investments should be equal to what is being reported in an intercompany account.

    By design it will be difficult to achieve that as the amount of the investment account is in the xacq table and the amount of the intercompany account is in the xdb table. We didn't get this request from other customers as normally they use the same account for the base values and for the investment register
