Analytic Entries

Integrated with General Accounting

Just as in general accounting, analytic entries should be related to an account and an analytic journal.

Аналитические записи отличаются от записей общего учета следующими признаками:

  • they are not necessarily legal accounting documents,

  • they do not necessarily belong to an existing accounting period,

  • they are managed according to their date and not an accounting period,

  • they do not generate both a debit and a credit entry, but a positive amount (income) or a negative amount (cost).


Analytic Account Records for a Customer Project

The figure Analytic Account Records for a Customer Project represents the entries in an analytic account for a customer project , you can see this list view of Analytic Journal Items from this menu Accounting ‣ Journal Entries ‣ Analytic Journal Items .

Здесь показаны:

  • стоимость услуг за сотрудников, работающих по проекту,

  • стоимость возмещения расходов на путь к клиенту,

  • закупка товаров, которые были доставлены клиенту,

  • возмещение расходов.

Manual Entries

Even though most analytic entries are produced automatically by the other OpenERP documents, it is sometimes necessary to record manual entries. It is usually needed for certain analytic operations which have no counterpart in the general accounts.

To record manual entries, go to the menu Accounting ‣ Journal Entries ‣ Analytic Journal Items and click the Create button.


Analytic Entries

To make an analytic entry, OpenERP asks you to specify a general account. This is given only for information in the different cross-reports. It will not create any new entries in the general accounts.

Выберите журнал и заполните соответствующие поля. Вносите затраты как отрицательное число, а выручку -- как положительное.


Entering a Date

To enter a date in the editable list you can use the calendar widget.


Example Cost Redistribution

One of the uses of manual data entry for analytic operations is reallocation of costs. For example, if a development has been done for a given project, but can be used again for another project, you can reallocate part of the cost to the other project.

В этом случае, внесите положительную запись на первом счете и отрицательную запись с той же величиной на счете второго проекта.

Automated Entries

Analytic accounting is totally integrated with the other OpenERP modules, so you never have to re-enter the records. They are automatically generated by the following operations:

  • подтверждение счета порождает аналитические проводки продажи или закупки, связанные со счетом аналитики, показанным в позиции счета или счет-фактуры,

  • проводка услуги генерирует аналитическую проводку стоимости данной услуги по данному проекту,

  • the manufacturing of a product generates an entry for the manufacturing cost of each operation in the product range.

Other documents linked to one of these three operations produce analytic records indirectly. For example, when you are entering a customer sales order, you can link it to the customer's analytic account. When you are managing by case or project, mark the project with that order. This order will then generate a customer invoice, which will be linked to the analytic account. When the invoice is validated, it will automatically create general and analytic accounting records for the corresponding project.

Expense receipts from an employee can be linked to an analytic account for reimbursement. When a receipt is approved by the company, a purchase invoice is created. This invoice represents a debit on the company in favour of the employee. Each line of the purchase invoice is then linked to an analytic account which automatically allocates the costs for that receipt to the corresponding project.

To visualise the general entries following these different actions, you can use one of the following menus:

  1. To see all of the entries, Accounting ‣ Journal Entries ‣ Analytic Journal Items

  2. To see the entries per account, per user, per product or per partner, you can use the menu Reporting ‣ Accounting ‣ Analytic Entries Analysis.


Analytic Entries Analysis

Analytic Models

Standard OpenERP allows you to post analytic entries to one chart at a time. Using the Analytic Model concept (install the module Multiple Analytic Plans from the module list), you can distribute your income or expenses to one or several analytic charts of account at the same time. You can define the combination of analytic plans through the menu Accounting ‣ Configuration ‣ Analytic Accounting ‣ Multi Plans ‣ Analytic Plan.


Definition of Analytic Plan

Save the plan , after you can create Distribution Models from More button at the top of the Analytic Plan form, you can define the distribution of either your expenses while creating a supplier invoice, or revenue when defining customer invoices. Thanks to these models, you can have one amount distributed amongst several analytic accounts. Models can be reused, and they can be applied to one analytic chart of accounts, but also to a combination of various charts of account, such as projects and cost centers.


Definition of Distribution Models

For example, when you create the invoice (suppose 1000 EUR) for the product Client Project with the analytic distribution defined above.

When the invoice has been validated, you can find the Analytic Journal Entries with the amount distributed amongst the analytic accounts through the menu Accounting ‣ Journal Entries ‣ Analytic Journal Items.


Journal Entries with Distributed Amount

You can also specify a default Analytic Distribution for a particular product, partner, user and company for a specific time interval using the menu Accounting ‣ Configuration ‣ Analytic Accounting ‣ Analytic Defaults.
