After my last update I receive this error.  Does the POS require new configuration or is this a bug? 8.0

Serpent Consulting is correct, in my case it was #3 below. The correct path in v8 is Settings/ Technical/ Parameters/ Company Properties

Make sure:

1. You have activated account chart for your company! (Installed it, so automatically it will assign accounts to partners).

2. The user has access to read the account.

3. If you have not used any customer on your order, you still need default property defined for receivable.

On your Settings/ Technical/ Parametres / Configuration Parameters

Add a property property_account_receivable need to be set to some receivable account.

Your partners/customers had no account receivable ,

Just define it under accounting page>account receivable.
