Hello Paramita,

Everything looks good after looking at your code.
I have just doubt about parent="associateaccounts_menu" and I guess you might be facing the problem for this as External ID error.

If yes, then make sure the ID is correct and the xml file which contains this ID is loaded first in __openerp__ file.
