What's new in ERPNext v13.5 and v13.6?

Tax deduction against advance payments

This functionality allows you to deduct TDS from two areas: Purchase Orders with Payment Entries and TDS deducted from advance payments. To support this, the “Advance Taxes and Charges” table has been added to ‘Payment Entry.'

Employee Grievance

Grievance Types including Pay and Benefits, as well as Interpersonal Grievance such as Employee Abuse, are now available with this feature. Employees can file grievances here, and following an inquiry, actions such as pay cuts and suspension can be taken and recorded in ERPNext.

Job Card enhancements

  • In the Operation document, a new table tracks sub-operations within an operation. The job card can also be used to complete sub-operations.

  • Batch size can now be used to create Job Cards. For example, if the work order contains a manufacturing quantity of 100 and an activity cutting with a batch size of 30, the system will generate four Job Cards for the operation ‘Cutting' with sizes : 30, 30, 30, and 10.

  • When a work order is submitted, there is an option in the manufacturing settings to generate a serial number/batch number for the finished goods.

  • A feature that allows you to track an operation as a 'corrective operation.'

  • After completing the Job Card, users can now create a 'Corrective Job Card.'

  • Multiple Employees can now be assigned to a single job card.

Fetching quantity as received quantity from purchase receipt to purchase invoice

There's a new checkbox in Buying Settings called "Consider Rejected Quantity For Purchase Invoice." If this checkbox is enabled, a Purchase Invoice issued from a Purchase Receipt will be based on the ‘Received Quantity' in that Purchase Receipt, whereas if it is unchecked, the Purchase Invoice will be based on the ‘Accepted Quantity' in that Purchase Receipt.

Item Taxes based on the net rate

This functionality allows you to apply item taxes automatically based on the final net rate. This function will be handy in nations where item taxes are based on the item's final worth.

Refactored maintenance schedule and visit document

The Maintenance Schedule and Maintenance Visit documentation in the Support module have also been updated.

  1. After saving, a Maintenance Schedule is automatically generated.

  2. A schedule's end date is now determined automatically depending on the frequency and amount of visits.

  3. Visually, the form has improved.

  4. Instead of launching the Maintenance Visit document, a Dialog Box appears to allow you to create a new visit.

  5. After entering scheduled visits, the Status and Dates are updated immediately.


Other Minor Additions

Cost-center wise period closing entry

Previously, the net profit and loss were filed against the company's default cost center when creating a Period Closing Voucher. A new feature allows you to book net profit and loss according to the Cost Center of each individual voucher.

Multi-account selection in General Ledger

Users can now select multiple Accounts at once when generating a General Ledger report.

Subcontracting enhancements

The following improvements were made to the subcontracting feature:

  • The Purchase Receipt now allows you to change the quantity consumed.

  • Non-consumed components can be retrieved and recorded in a Purchase Order.

  • A new report named "Subcontract Order Summary" is now available.

A new ‘Inactive’ status in Employee

Employees who are inactive are not the same as those who have left. Seasonal labor, daily wage employees, and contractors are all examples of this. Their status might be adjusted to ‘Inactive' in such circumstances.

Combining items with same BOM in Production Plans

If "Consolidate Products" is activated in a Production Plan, items with the same bill of materials are consolidated into a single item with the combined total intended quantity.
