Abstract

TRIRIGA Journal Entry Setup

Body

Journal entries were introduced in the 10.5.3 release.  Processing Journal Entries will create a Data Transfer Object (DTO) file for exporting to ERP General Ledger systems.  In order to use journal entries, there is some setup that is required before using them.  It uses a combination of existing and new functionalities.

Prior to any journal entry activity, data must be populated in the following tables:

  • Business Units
  • Business Units General Ledger Codes
  • Business Units General Ledger Segments

The Process

  • Create a new business unit within the Organizations application, under My Company.    
  • Using the new function under Contracts-> Financials called Lease Accounting Close Period, you want to create an initial close and open period for the business unit
  • Under the new function Contracts -> Contract Setup -> Business Unit General Ledgers to create a general ledger for the business unit.
  • Using Classifications -> General Ledger Codes to create Real Estate Codes that gets associated to Business Unit
  • Then using the new Lease journal Entry Setup under Contracts -> Contract Setup you will set up your journal entries.  Specifying it for real estate or asset, the calendar, period, etc.  You will need add a debit and credit GL code.   And lastly the calculation to be used for the journal entry.

For additional information on this, I suggest you check out the Lease Accounting Guides found here
