Help would be appreciated

Re: Currency and vat % setup for South Africa

Although the 6 digit Chart of Accounts for South Africa - chart_en_ZA-general - is in the official repo, it is advisable to use the standard en_US-new.sql Chart of Accounts and customise it for South Africa. Use the bleeding edge FA 2.4.3+ to start your FA endeavour without much problems since there have been several fixes to the Official FA 2.4.3 released on 2017-11-09.

Re: Currency and vat % setup for South Africa

A brand new South African Chart of Accounts has been prepared on your request (upload the chart to the sql folder) and added to the FA24extensions repository. Kindly provide feedback.

ZAR Currency - Rand / Cents
VAT 14%
Fiscal Year from 1st March till last day of Feb of next year
1 user: admin
Initial admin password: password

The Chart from the Official repo has some field order and other DDL issues besides having no P&L Account - essentially broken. It is stated to be a 5 digit Chart but in actuality it is a 6 digit one. Hence, if you use it, then be prepared to customise it to work. Otherwise, use the one linked above.
