Can we build accounting system from Drupal 7+

5 years 6 months ago #123992 by iqsafe
I sometimes think to build an accounting system that record transaction of clients in the two usual columns of Debit and Credit and do some calculation operations to find balance of customers/clients. Is that possible with Drupal. Your guide is very much appreciated.

Thanks a lot. I feel interested, but is there any tutorial on the said module. And what does the prefix "Mutual" means here. Between 1989 and 1994 I used to use Foxpro language for building application systems and I remember there were functions such as (Total on (customer no.) ) to produce balancing for accounts of customers.
Thanks

Hi iqsafe,

I believe mutual credit is a legal definition the origin of the module was probably developed for an accountant.

If you are looking to follow a tutorial why don't you check this one out from the OSTraining blog.

Thanks for sending further help for the topic I proposed. According to Google I found:

Mutual credit is a type of alternative currency in which the currency used in a transaction can be created at the time of the transaction. Local exchange trading systems (LETS) are mutual credit systems. Typically this involves keeping track of each individual's credit or debit balance.
