The Account Product Module mainly extends existing accounting and product concepts.
The Product concept is extended with a set of methods that allow access to the product’s accounting related properties.
Many of these properties are set in the product’s accounting category. The accounting category is a special type of Product Category. Unlike standard product categories, each product can only have a single accounting category.
The Account Product Module allows some Product Categories to be marked as accounting categories. These product categories can have accounting properties such as Taxes, and revenue and expense Accounts associated with them.
When placing categories into a structure all the categories in the structure must be either standard categories or accounting categories. This means an accounting category cannot have a standard category as its parent or as any of its subcategories.
