We had a great crowd of a dozen people including many first-time meetup participants from our Africa community.  They all were able to partake in the demonstration that Shiva from Hugo Technologies gave of the Mifos-ACC simple integrated accounting module.

Many thanks to Hugo Technologies, FinA, Conflux, and Binny for guiding this work.

Notes from the meeting have been added to the wiki and if you'd like to see how Mifos-ACC works, check out the video demonstration.

Mark your calendars, our next user meetup is 2 weeks away.

Hi All,

The Mifos Integration of Accounting solution is really cool!

My Kudos to Shiva, Hugo Technologies, FinA, Conflux and Binny for their excellent work.

The following is some of my thoughts to make this Accounting module a more attractive piece for the Accountants:
1) In the Opening Balance screen, we can make the following text changes:
    - from "Office Hierarchy" to "Office Hierarchy(Legal Entity)" or "Office Hierarchy(Reporting Entity)"
   - from "Office" to "Office(Cost Center)"
2) In accounting(Opening Balance entry, GL Tranaction entry or Journal Voucher) all of them are Journal(GL) Entries and everything is a double sided entry. When i mean by double sided entry is each Journal Entry should have a debit and credit. If not, at end of the month it would be a very hard for the accountant when they run Trial Balance(Sum of all Debits and Credits in all chart of accounts in a month should be Zero). So, it would be really nice, if all of them could be combined into ONE screen.

Opening Balance Entry: (Initial Investment)
    Dr  Bank Account                      10,000
    Cr  Owners Capital account        10,000
(Incase of Migration, we use Migration Chart of Accounts instead of Owners Capital Account)

Cash Receipts Entry:
                                                     Amount                Notes
     Dr  Cash in Hand Account           1000                   Citibank Loan Withdrawl
     Cr  Bank Loan #1                        1000

Bank Receipts Entry:
                                                    Amount          Check No       Check Date
    Dr  Bank Account                        1000             CK0001          04/26/2012
    Cr  Bank Loan #2                         1000

Transfer of Fee from Office 1 to Office 2 (Voucher Entry)
                                         Amount               Office/CostCenter
    Cr    Fees Account            100                   Office #1
    Dr    Fees Account            100                   Office #2

Suggested Solution:
Transaction/Accounting Date: <date>
Journal Entry Number:<Unique Number>
Journal Entry Reason: <text>
Column1      Column2       Column 3      Column 4                    Column5       Column6
<Dr/Cr>       <Account>    <Amount>     <Office/Cost Center>   <Notes>   <Check Info>

Example of a GL Entry video - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DFlTngMLVPs

This is just my suggestion. It would be nice, if you could just create a new option called as "Quick Journal Entry" and add my suggested solution.

3) It would be nice, if you could add a new option called as "Trial Balance"(executed by Month or Year) which checks if the sum of all Debits and Credits in all Chart of Accounts are Zero or not.

Let me know, if you need any more details.

Again, thank you for your excellent work in the process of integrating Accounting into Mifos.
