Vendor Bills

  • You can upload attachments (PDF or picture) to an Odoo vendor bill. There is an attachment icon next to the "Send message" section button.
  • When you create manually a vendor bill, you need to enter invoice lines. Don't forget to remove the VAT if it's not applicable.


  • It seems the Payroll module does not have built-in rules for countries. For instance, you must enter manually the rules that will compute your social contributions.
  • Rules should be either of category "Company contribution" (if the employer pays this contribution) or "Deduction" (if it's paid by the employee, out of the gross salary).
  • You must first create a work contract for an employee.
  • Clicking on the "Compute Sheet" button will create automatically the salary computations (such as social compensations, etc).
  • To create the entries in the accounting journals, you should click on the "Create Draft Entry" button on the Payslip.
