KeyPay Australian Payroll

The KeyPay Module synchronizes payslip accounting entries (e.g., expenses, social charges, liabilities, taxes) from KeyPay to Odoo automatically. Payroll administration is still done in KeyPay. We only record the journal entries in Odoo.

Configuration Steps

  2. Vérifier que le module de la localisation australienne (Australia - Accounting) soit bien installé.

  3. Configure the KeyPay API.

  8. Vous pouvez choisir n’importe quel journal Odoo pour publier les entrées de fiche de paie.

How does the API work?

The API syncs the journal entries from KeyPay to Odoo and leaves them in draft mode. The reference includes the KeyPay payslip entry ID in brackets for the user to easily retrieve the same record in KeyPay and Odoo.

KeyPay payslip entries also work based on double-entry bookkeeping. Debit must equal credit (like in Odoo).

The accounts used by KeyPay are defined in the section Payroll settings.
