When creating new business in Manager, you can select
Country which will bootstrap new business within the selected country.
This will automatically create
Chart of Accounts for the target country, set base currency, date/number format, create tax codes, payslip items and supply country-specific reports and other country-specific extensions (compulsory QR codes, online submissions etc).
If your country is missing in the list, you can now contribute new country by uploading it to dedicated localization project at GitHub.
Here is step-by-step guide how to do it…
In country field, do not select any country (we do not have the country you are creating anyway) and
Business Name should be name of the country in your language.
Chart of Accounts and remove/add accounts as required. If your country has pre-defined stadard account codes, you should use them. Remember, when users in the future will select your country, this
Chart of Accounts will be automatically replicated in their new accounting file.
It’s a good idea to go to
Base Currency and set up base currency for the country you are creating. For example, many countries in Europe would have
Date & Number Format and set up preferences common in your country. This way new users in your country do not have to set it up over and over again.
There is a lot more that can be done to improve the master business template for the country but let’s skip this for now.
Settings tab, then
Export button in bottom-right corner
This will generate JSON data for the business. Click
Copy to Clipboard button.
Go to our localization project at GitHub and click on your language for which your business template has been created. If your language is not yet listed, do not click on any language.
Add File button in top-right corner, then
Create new file.
This will reveal new file editor.
In the field
Name your file... enter the name of your country in your language and in
Edit new file section, paste JSON which you copied from Manager in the step 6.
Then fill out the form below and submit.
Once you submit your file, we will merge it with the rest of the project and your country will appear as new option under
Country field when creating new business.
