Learn to configure Odoo Payroll rules to handle any deduction

This video is for anyone who wants to learn how to setup a Payroll system using Odoo. Currently Odoo Payroll has only been localized for a handful of countries. Still Odoo Payroll provides a robust rule system that has a lot of flexibility in configuring a payroll system for your company.
