The General Ledger module does the following:
Account numbers can be any combination of accounts, departments, and cost centres. Statement printing allows selecting “to which level” so you can summarize accounts.
Journal entry processing lets you create, change, or delete entries. You can:
An Account Transactions inquiry lets you ‘drill down’ to the related batch (including source posting detail). The Financial Statements Inquiry displays statement information for any period and lets you ‘drill down’ to the batch level. The Account Inquiry shows balances for every year you’ve been on AIMS.
You can generate income statements by company, department, or cost centre, and can compare actual figures to budget or prior year amounts. A 12-month income statement shows figures for all 12 months on one page and forecasts year-end profit or loss. The 12-month rolling statement works the same except it goes back 12 months regardless of year end.
A flexible Statement Formatter lets you create your own financials by defining each line on the statement. It’s also great for schedules.
The multiple-company consolidation feature lets you make inter-company journal entries before you print consolidated statements. You can also create consolidated statements through the Statement Formatter.
The General Ledger module integrates with all other AIMS modules.
