Does anyone know how to get the Fleet expenses (i.e service costs, fuel etc) to flow through to the accounting module. We need to compare vehicle costs to vehicle income.

Answer 2:

Fleet Management is not integrated with account management. :(


  1. Additional development to your needs.

  2. Track vehicle costs two times - with Fleet Management for detailed track and with account management (supplier invoices) with analytic accounts for compare vehicle costs and income (with analytic accounts).

Answer 1:

There are several ways how to track vehicle costs and income.

  1. You can track vehicle costs with Fleet Management (if you need to know detailed vehicle costs) and vehicle income track with analytic accounts (one analytic account for each vehicle). Then you can compare Fleet Management cost report with analytic account income.

  2. If you dont need to know detailed vehicle costs (services, fuel etc., only sum), then you can use only analytic accounts (of course one account for each vehicle).

Thanks for your reply. I'm not sure it solves the problem. With your solution, the vehicle cost will not be reflected in the General Ledger. Also, to see the profitability of each vehiccle, you would have to compare two reports and manulaly work out the profit ( i.e subtract the income figure from

Do you need detailed track of vehicle costs (services, fuel, etc.), or you need to know just vehicle costs sum without details?

Thanks Janis. Not what I wanted to hear :-( We will have to look at developing something - our client wants a fully integrated system, not one where you have to post everything twice ! This fleet has over 300 vehicles.
