Maybe Odoo should at least deliver a comprehensive set of out-of-the-box accounting export functions for external finance programs and accountant firms.
That way the strategy of reducing functionality for finance accounting would make sense stating a clear message: "use specialized" software for accounting in your county.

With kind regards,

There are more issues,

Since 2014 there are new vat rules in Europe,

Real Intrastat

Financial discounts and vat


More legal reporting missing,

Local government required certification for accounting we have to redo with each new version after upgrading or own modules


All modules and stuff  probably made multiple times by other partners in the same way just as we did since version 6 and have
to be upgraded with each new release and so which makes it also almost impossible to sell support contracts
Because upgrading becomes very difficult as  these things are missing in the standards.

In version 8 already a lot of accounting disappeared we had to add again  and when I read this looks like 9 is even more difficult to handle in finance.


I would suggest version 10 to wait first a few years and make finance something usable out of the box , so it is also easier to sell support contracts
with much less effort from partnes

Just an advice because after 5 years in odoo its time someone brings this up

Subject: Odoo: Odoo 9 Accouting : Fiscal Years and Periods


Hello everybody,


As the new version of Odoo doesn't include fiscal years and periods anymore, does anyone know the strategy proposed by Odoo ?


Thanks in advance
