From the docs:

You have to set Internal Type as Consolidation and set Consolidated Children accounts to make accounts consolidate.

So you will want to create a consolidated chart of accounts for the parent, changing the Internal Type for each account to 'Consolidation' and setting the Consolidated Children field to the relevant accounts from your 3 child companies. See here for more on consolidation.

Hope that helps :)

@ Ganeshanand sankar I have been encountering a similar issue, the 'parent company' doesn't see any numbers.

I believe this may be a bug - so will post a bug report to odoo support, but I found that going to user preferences (in the top right hand corner) and clicking apply - the left pane shows blank, but the numbers now show up correctly.

Quite a strange one.

EDIT: It is not a bug - It has something to do with the company specific fiscal year/periods which are automatically being selected when you first click 'Chart of Accounts'. The parent company will most likely have access to all of the child companies fiscal years/periods, so if you remove data from these 3 fields (Fiscal Year, Periods 'to' and 'from') then it will gather postings from all companies and the consolidation accounts will display correctly.


Same issue here, when I do the reports only postings for one of the companies are showing.

I don't have any problem to set up this multi-company with the COA. How about combination of chart of account for child company but in separate database? I m facing this problem right now. Can anyone help me?
