Updated Features in Odoo 13 Accounting Module


Recurring Entries:

An important feature of the Odoo 13 accounting module. It enables businesses to generate entries for specific periodical bills like rent or electricity bills. Businesses can set the recurring template for that bill and the time period for which it repeats. Once the recurring template is set, the bill will be posted or created automatically as a draft according to the recurring interval and recurring period. 

To create a recurring template go to:

Accounting -> Configuration -> Recurring Template

After creating a recurring template, you need to fill the following fields:

Name: Name of the recurring payment

Pay Time: Specify whether the bill can be paid directly or will be paid later

Recurring Period: Select the recurring period (days, weeks or months). 

Recurring Interval: Specify the recurring interval 

Starting Date: Specify the date for recurring payment

Next Schedule: It is calculated on the basis of recurring period and recurring interval

Amount: Mention the amount for recurring payment


Asset Management:

Using this module, businesses can manage their own assets or the assets of individuals. They can keep track of depreciation that occurred on those assets. Businesses can compute the depreciation based on three types of assets:

Lock Dates: Businesses can set lock dates for non-advisors so that they are unable to make any changes in their accounts. Later, they can use this data at the time of auditing

Generate Asset Entries: It enables businesses to automatically generate asset entries for an estimated time period.

Reconciliation: It is an invoice-payment reconciliation that enables businesses to match the payment with corresponding invoices
