Consolidated Chart of accounts

on 3/26/14, 6:03 AM 5,274 views

Hi all,

We have a multi-company setup with a parent company and some child companies.

Each company have its own accounting chart..

Can we get a Consolidated chart of accounts or it's not possible with OpenERP ?

Thank you so much in advance.

"You have to set up 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.

You can refer the following link for more detail: https://doc.openerp.com/7.0/book/3/3_9/chart_of_accounts/#virtual-charts-of-accounts https://doc.openerp.com/6.1/book/3/3_9/chart_of_accounts/#creating-a-chart-of-accounts

Just to note - If you have different periods set up for each 'child' company - remember to either

a.) Make the fiscal years/periods globally shared (No company_id) or

b.) De-select all fiscal years/periods on the chart of accounts wizard.

Without doing this - you'll notice balances showing as 0 due to no accounting entries being posted against the period id you selected (for a different company)

Thank you so much for your answer, Well actualy i have to create a parent company with three differents childs, the first one is frensh , which means that this last disposes a frensh chart of accounts, the second is moroccan so it disposes a moroccan chart of accounts,... , my problem is that i don't know if i have to create the generic chart of account manually or there is a way that automatize this operation some how in openerp 7.


You can install the required module for Chart of Accounts. And can define different chart of Accounts based on company. Do the account configuration as I mentioned previously. You can configure chart of account using menu Settings/Technical/Configuration Wizards/Configuration Wizards/Set your accounting options by selecting company and chart of templates.
