3.Then, complete the Maintenance Entries outlined below.
❑There are two types of system Entries that need to be understood:
1.Account Divisions - Although not a real Maintenance Entry, one of the system's predefined Account Divisions must be assigned to every General Ledger Group, and so are an integral part of the General Ledger System and must be understood by any Employee who has been granted Accounting Administrator privileges.
2.Cash Flow Groups - Also not a real Maintenance Entry, one of the system's predefined Cash Flow Groups will need to be assigned to certain General Ledger Accounts - as specified in the Cash Flow Groups chapter - to be able to produce a proper Cash Flow Statement.
❑There are four types of Maintenance Entries that may need to be added/updated:
3.Departments - If your Company will be implementing Multi-Departmental Accounting (the goal of which is to have the General Ledger System produce Departmentally based Income Statements), those Departments must also be defined.
4.Sale Purchase Items - Update the Sale-Purchase Item records to include the appropriate General Ledger Account Number(s) - (e.g., a Sale GL#, and/or a Purchase GL#, and/or an Unearned Revenue GL#), and if implementing Multi-Departmental Accounting, a Department Number.
