I am creating a blank database. I need to create a chart of account according to my customer needs. The concern here, when I install accounting module, after installation accounting module always prompt with Chart of Accounting Wizard.
I have two options now.
- Select a country and install country specific chart of accounting.
- Select 'custom' and enter few entries like Tax etc. But this default makes entry and creates empty chart of accounts with few fields.
I want to have a blank COA. i.e no data entered automatically by OpenERP account wizard.
a) what is the best way to accomplish? b) If no direct approach, I need to cleanup existing entries and import my own entries. what are the places I need to delete chart of account entries?
OpenERP provides this suggested COA as its considered a fundamental and needed for almost all businesses. however, there is a workaround to achieve your demand. :)
After installing the 'Accounting and Finance' module in a clean database (without demo data), choose to install a custom COA.
There will be no Journal Entries in this case. Now, go to Settings->Parameters->Configuration Parameters. you need to Edit & remove the default accounts for the following four fields:
- Account Receivable
- Account Payable
- Expense Account
- Income Account
This will allow us to completely remove the default COA. go to Accounting->Configuration->Accounts->Accounts & select all then from More click on Delete.
Note: You should have the 'Technical Features' enabled for your account. Feel free to get back to me in case you encountered any farther problems.
