If I wanted (and I do) to establish a revised COA for a Church, let's say, and didn't want to modify the heck out of GL_Classes, GL_Account_Groups and COA's available, where do you recommend I look for that code? In other words, after a fresh install, I want to see the Classes, GL Groups and COA of exactly what I want. Lots of churches so I don't want to re-invent this everytime.
I want to start from here on Classes. Only 5 Classes (not the 11 that is standard on some installs):
1 Assets Assets
2 Liabilities Liabilities
3 Equity Equity
4 Income Income
5 Expense Expense
and something like this for Groups where every "group" parental number ties to a major accounting component (A,L,E,I,EX)
1000 Assets Assets
1020 Current Assets Assets Assets
1040 Inventory Assets Assets Assets
1060 Capital Assets Assets Assets
2000 Liabilities Liabilities
2020 Current Liabilities Liabilities Liabilities
2040 Long Term Liabilities Liabilities Liabilities
3000 Equtiy Equity
3020 Retained Earnings Equtiy Equity
4000 Income Income
4020 Sales Income Income Income
4040 Misc Income Income Income
5000 Expenses Expense
5020 General & Administrative expenses Expenses Expense
5040 Cost of Goods Sold Expenses Expense
5070 Payroll Expenses Expense
5080 Taxes Expenses Expense
The Church needs classes/groups/COA's to be easily identified within the 5 major components of pretty simple and basic accounting system. ASSETS, LIABILITIES, EQUITY, INCOME, EXPENSE.
I went back and modified a non-profit install, but it was a TON of work, so I want to set it up as an option in the future.
Any thoughts on how to proceed.
Thanks in Advance.
