I want to start using ERPNext shortly with the Accounting as my main (and till further notice) only functionality.
So one thing still have to be doing (and which touches the HR module) is payments of salaries.
I definitely do not want to open the Pandora’s box of HR Module (Salary Structure, Salary Slip, Holiday List ,… ) in this first phase of usage and I was thinking to simply make a payment entry for a Salary payment.
- New Payment Entry
- Payment Type:
Pay, Party Type:
Now what I would expect is that an Asset Account (our bank account, i.e.) and an Expense account (Salaries) would be needed to satisfy the requirements of a double entry accounting transaction.
But the System (v11) mocks me with an
Account Type for "Salaries" must be Payable error message upon saving the PE. Somehow this would make sense to me whether there was some sort of liability (something in the line of a
Salary Invoice or such) posted to a Payable account beforehand. But this does not exist in my case and for now I’d prefer to avoid it in order to not having to deal with all the dependencies of the Payroll cycle.
Can anyone point me towards the right direction in this regards?
