Malaysia COA ? Question to openerp .

on 10/17/13, 7:56 AM 3,378 views

I can find COA for other countries but not for Malaysia, why? I saw there are Openerp ready partners in Malaysia that means these companies must have implemented openerp for their client in Malaysia, are they using other country COA eg from UK/US or these ready partner just don't share their work?

For Malaysia please use Australia or UK COA.

There are several possible reasons:

  • They became partners recently and haven't implemented OpenERP yet.
  • They have implemented OpenERP but not the accounting module.
  • They resell OpenERP out of the box as well as functional consulting services and exclusively work with standard modules.
  • They didn't share their work or didn't make a merge proposal.
  • They use the COA template of another country as a starting point because it is close enough to what they need.

Feel free to contribute by copying the COA of another country and adapting it to Malaysia. Then, send a merge proposal to OpenERP and we will include it.

I think most likely they are not sharing for some reason. OK, where can I find more details or example of COA setup step by step instruction + which country COA template is the most ideal setup to be used as the base. Frankly, I did not expect the Business DEV Director is answering my question. Thanks a lot.

You can look into the Belgian COA (or any localization present in the certified modules): http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~openerp/openobject-addons/7.0/files/head:/l10n_be/
