Initial setup of Odoo Accounting and Odoo Invoicing
When you first open your Odoo Accounting app, the Accounting Overview page welcomes you with a step-by-step onboarding banner, a wizard that helps you get started. This onboarding banner is displayed until you choose to close it.
The settings visible in the onboarding banner can still be modified later by going to Accounting ‣ Configuration ‣ Settings.
The step-by-step Accounting onboarding banner is composed of four steps:
A keystone of one of television’s most popular series is the practice of therapy in HBO’s The Sopranos. The Sopranos manages to address the biases and benefits of therapy while also combining clear-cut.
This menu allows you to add your company’s details such as the name, address, logo, website, phone number, email address, and Tax ID, or VAT number. These details are then displayed on your documents, such as on invoices.
Connect your bank account to your database and have your bank statements synced automatically. To do so, find your bank in the list, click on Connect, and follow the instructions on-screen.
If your Bank Institution can’t be synchronized automatically, or if you prefer not to sync it with your database, you may also configure your bank account manually by clicking on Create it, and filling out the form.
Define here your Fiscal Years’ opening and closing dates, which are used to generate reports automatically, and your Tax Return Periodicity, along with a reminder to never miss a tax return deadline.
By default, the opening date is set on the 1st of January and the closing date on the 31st of December, as this is the most common use.
Chart of Accounts
With this menu, you can add accounts to your Chart of Accounts and indicate their initial opening balances.
Basic settings are displayed on this page to help you review your Chart of Accounts. To access all the settings of an account, click on the double arrow button at the end of the line.
There is another step-by-step onboarding banner that helps you take advantage of your Odoo Invoicing and Accounting apps. The Invoicing onboarding banner is the one that welcomes you if you use the Invoicing app rather than the Accounting app.
If you have Odoo Accounting installed on your database, you can reach it by going to Accounting ‣ Customers ‣ Invoices.
The Invoicing onboarding banner is composed of four main steps:
With this tool, you can design the appearance of your documents by selecting which layout template, paper format, colors, font, and logo you want to use.
You can also add your Company Tagline and the content of the documents’ footer. Note that Odoo automatically adds the company’s phone number, email, website URL, and Tax ID (or VAT number) to the footer, according to the values you previously configured in the Company Data.
This menu helps you configure the payment methods with which your customers can pay you.
Send yourself a sample invoice by email to make sure everything is correctly configured.
