Purpose of the Chart of Accounts

Chart of Accounts Design

  • The COA as found in ADempiere is in the form of an excel spreadsheet where users can adapt to their own format.
  • It can then be saved as a comma separated value file or accting.csv and imported into ADempiere.
  • Daniel Norin has created a nice COA Editor to access that csv file to change or create a new COA without looking at the excel file.
  • The COA follows the General Accepted Principles of Accounting (GAAP) in practice throughout the world.
