Hello Davide!

were you also in the Track with Josse on Thursday evening?
I was there, but I don't mention that we need also child-accounts in german.

Thank you very much for that hint.

As far as I understood what Josse in this track and Quentin in another track said, the tags only can be used to create a special, country- or company-based report.

But to consolidation / multicompany both of them don't said anything.
And no one asked about that.

All in all are many things uncleare in the new accounting, because even from Odoo no one knows exact things at the moment.

Mit herzlichen Grüßen

as far as i'm not mistaken, Odoo removed these things from 
account.account and account.account.type models:

1) "parent_id" field has been removed from account.account

2) no more "view" account type

3) no more "consolidation" account type

I strongly believe that many localizations rely on these params.
without parent_id we don't have a hierarchical chart of accounts.

Can we reproduce it using tags as Odoo says? i don't think so.

Without view accounts we still need a way to compute the total of a 
specific account including its children.
If this is already possibile on v9, we still need to find a way to avoid 
people using "that" specific account instead of one of its children.

Without the consolidation account type i can't see how we can, for 
instance, configure a multicompany scenario with companies with 
different CoAs. Or consolidate the company's CoA over the Basel II CoA 
which is often requested by EU Banks.

My fear is that, as sometimes happens, those features have been dropped 
because Odoo doesn't need them.

Does your localization need them?
Will we need to re-implement them as OCA modules?
