Detect changes and update the Account Chart from a template

Beta License: AGPL-3 OCA/account-financial-tools Translate me on Weblate Try me on Runbot

This is a pretty useful tool to update Odoo installations after tax reforms on the official charts of accounts, or to apply fixes performed on the chart template.

The wizard:

  • Allows the user to compare a chart and a template showing differences on accounts, taxes, tax codes and fiscal positions.
  • It may create the new account, taxes, tax codes and fiscal positions detected on the template.
  • It can also update (overwrite) the accounts, taxes, tax codes and fiscal positions that got modified on the template.

Table of contents


The wizard, accesible from Accounting > Settings > Update Chart Template, lets the user select what kind of objects must be checked/updated, and whether old records must be checked for changes and updates.

It will display all the objects to be created / updated / deactivated with some information about the detected differences, and allow the user to exclude records individually.

Known issues / Roadmap

  • Generate and update account reconcile models.
  • Generate XML-ID for fiscal position tax and account mapping lines.
  • Allow to select independently operations to perform (create, update, deactivate).
  • Detect fiscal positions to deactivate?
