In the Dutch accounts system a 10 categories (decimal system) is used, in which Ledger compaction is applied.
Related ledger accounts are added together wherever possible, where the so-called decimal system of accounts is used.
The decimal accounting system ranks the ledger accounts into ten main groups, called sections. The ten categories are (google translation ):
- Bills of fixed assets, equity and long-term debt
- Accounts receivables and short-term debt and (accounts) means of payment
- Bills of stocks of raw materials and consumables
- Help Bills equity, ie the cost accounts
- Bills of indirect costs
- Manufacturing Accounts
- Bills Stocks of commodities (in trading)
- Help Accounts of equity, being the sales accounts (sales accounts)
- Help Bills equity, ie accounts for exceptional results
Further distribution in sub accounts are made, which on turn belong to different Root Types. Hence the requirement for alternative root types as from the second child.
Common are Dutch root types, as shown in the table, which correspond with ErpNext as show, while ErpNext is comprehensive and uses some additional types, which are usefull to us too.
The second image will be sent by the following reply due to the limitation of one image for new users.
I hope you can accomplish the feature of different root types as from the second level downwards.
