Connect you has "administrator" or 'account manager' rights, go in :

Accounting -> Configuration -> Periods -> Fiscal Years,

and click on 'create' button, fill it,

click on 'Create ... Peroods' button of your choice and save

After that, your year 2014 is created and the periods assocciated to.

If you get this error while installing the Accounting and Finance module, open the account_move_line.py file and comment out the line that is causing the issue, for me it was this one:

#'period_id': _get_period,

After the module is installed, you can uncomment the line.

After creating the period, it stills throws me that error. I tried rebooting the server but didn't work too.
