An Overview of Fiscal Localization in Odoo 17 Accounting

Functional Odoo 17

Odoo ERP modules offer fiscal localization packages, which provide a chart of accounts, pre-configured taxes, legal declarations, and fiscal positions on a database. These modules simplify tax automation by allowing users from different countries to localize ERP goods according to their regulations. Odoo ERP enhances localization functionality in modules like the Odoo 17 Accounting module, simplifying electronic invoice storage, applying taxes, managing customer tax, withholding taxes, credits, and book payments. Fiscal localization also facilitates the integration of accounting transactions, enabling the development of multiple reports and centralizing organizational data.

Activating Fiscal Localization

Fiscal Localization Packages are specialized modules designed for specific countries to cater to your fiscal management requirements. They install pre-set taxes, fiscal positions, account charts, legal statements, certificate setups, and other features, into your accounting system.

Odoo automatically installs a fiscal localization package for your business, depending on the nation you choose while creating the database. You can go to the ‘Configuration’ menu and activate the ‘Fiscal Localization’ option from the ‘Settings’ window to select a package, then save the configuration changes.
