Greeting from Thailand,

Agree with Lionel. Budget is important for an organisation. It is to control how your business should go. It is a plan of finance.

+1 for Reconciliation, reduce complication of Tax setting, very good for restart sequence for new FY, tax is workable on Expense, More flexible on Reporting with pdf and excel are optional and last one menu items is NICE!

However, removing account hierarchy  is incomprehensible. Account hierarchy is sort of like basic of accounting in part of presentation for management assertion, unless Odoo will have other friendly feature to support CFO to create their own financial report template freely. Hopefully, new account type and reporting in this roadmap will help.

BTW , a lot of companies here in Austria (and very likely elswhere) need multiple and different hierarchies
* balance - to be published
* tax balance - taxable profit for tax purpose
* IFRS -

the classical account hierarchy is not sufficient.

* some accounts may (bank, fiscal authorities, social security) show up as asset or liability, depending on the balance
** sometimes it is not the balance of the account itself, but the balance of a group of accounts  which must be checked.

I find the beginning of the document very worrying :

"(...) Not a priority:

  • Budget

  • Analytic"

I'm worried because our company is into manufacturing, and our accounting is so simple that we didn't even bother making it in Odoo - EBP compta does the job for ~200€.
BUT analytics and budgets are major features for us, the only ones we'll really use in Odoo's accounting.
So please, by all means do improve whatever you want on accounting, but do NOT remove any more existing features.

Omg. You are taking your model from a 1-10 user accounting system with no concept of stock, no concept of anglosaxon, not even a concept of a sales order really and literally quoting their CEO verbatim while inserting screenshots of their product.

Dont get me wrong, i like xero, i use xero, i have written integrations between xero and openerp, in fact i own shares in xero, but this is either crazy or odoo is abandoning anybody subject to anything but a small business reporting standard.

I feel sorry for partners. I think you just got screwed but at least the direction is clear early.
