I'm trying to make a simple CashBookEntry using pyconomic like this:

        aCashBook = pycon.get(models.CashBook, number=1)
        debet_account = pycon.get(
                models.Account, number='1340')
        credit_account = pycon.get(
                models.Account, number='5820')
        entry = pycon.create(models.CashBookEntry, cash_book=aCashBook, account=debet_account, contra_account=credit_account)
I'm getting the error:
  File "build/bdist.macosx-10.8-intel/egg/suds/mx/literal.py", line 87, in start
suds.TypeNotFound: Type not found: 'ContraAccount'
It seems that I have to specify that the contra_account is of type ContraAccount, or? Would it be easy for you to make a working example of creating a CashBookEntry in Python?

I haven't got the time to look into it, but it sounds like the contra_account property definition is messed up.
The model classes code is generated from a assumption on naming convention, which is not always correct.
I think your best option would be to change all the contra_account properties in pyconomic.models to a reference.
I think it would be something like:
contra_account = EConomicsReference('ContraAccount', 'Account')
Thanks for the advice. It worked with contra_account as reference and a few more parameters:

pycon.create(models.CashBookEntry, cash_book=aCashBook, type="FinanceVoucher", account=debet_account, contra_account=credit_account, date="2013-10-28T00:00:00", voucher_number="9999", text="Test", amount=1.00, currency=currency, amount_default_currency=1)
