Chart of Accounts

The Chart of Accounts included in the pack is provided as a starting point for organizations that do not have a chart of accounts, the structuring of the account names and organasation is based on common accounting conventions used in Australia.

The Australian Chart of Accounts module creates:

"General Accounts" such as "Income Summary" account and the "Default" accounts such as "Customer Receivables", "Tax Due" and "Tax Credit" are also provided and properly configured within the General Ledger configuration window.

If the user wants to add more subaccounts within the account tree he can do so by adding them manually in the "Account Tree" window. Those subaccounts can be move up/down within the account tree as required.

After that the account tree can be exported by using the extension module Account Tree Export. This modules creates a csv file which can later on be imported and applied while creating new Clients/Organizations.

Default Tax Rates for Australia

Default tax rates configuration for Australia is included in this pack in the form of reference data.

The way to apply tax rates configuration to existing Organizations is explained below:

1. Navigate to "Enterprise Module Management" window.

2. If the Chart of Accounts was applied while creating the Client, select (*) Organization if you want that the tax rates configuration is available for all the organizations created within the Client, otherwise select the Organization for which you want the tax rates configuration to be applied.

3. If the Chart of Accounts was applied while creating an Organization, it will only be possible to select the tax rates configuration dataset for that Organization.

Step 9.jpg

If the data is already applied through an earlier version of the pack, the update of the tax rates configuration reference data can also be performed through the Enterprise Module Management window.

Select the reference data by having into account the Organization which should be applied to once more and click OK.

Australian States

The Australian States dataset is applied at the System Admin level since it is common across all the Clients and Organizations for Australia, therefore there is no need to manually applied it.

So once the pack is installed, the states are populated automatically in the "Country and Region" window, under the Country "Australia", "Region" tab.
