I am testing the payroll processing using ERPNext 7.2.6. In this version each Salary Component requires an association with an account - seems a very good idea.
I have associated the Basic Salary with the Salary Expense account and Income tax and insurance deductions with different liability accounts. The liabilities I initially classed as payables but when the payroll was processed the JVs were rejected as no party type or party was provided for the liability accounts. There appears no clear way to set these and so temporarily I have set the accounts as cash and so avoided the need for party information.
Now the JV progresses to the point of posting to the salary expense account but fails with the message that there is no default company cost centre, when in fact there is. The system then crashes with a complex error report which I have sent to the support team.
I do not know if I have a problem of understanding or if this feature is still “green”?
Is there anyone that has used the salary component to account mapping feature under ErpNext 7.2 that could shed some light on what is going on?
