If there are accounts missing from the client’s general ledger, use the options under Accounts on the Tasks bar to add accounts. These newly added accounts can also be edited or deleted as necessary.

Added accounts must adhere to the following conventions:

  • Both header and detail accounts can be added to the ledger. Header accounts are used to group related detail accounts to help organise the accounts list.

  • Header accounts must be assigned an account classification.

  • Detail accounts must be assigned an account classification and an account type.

  • Each account is represented by a five digit number and must be unique. The first digit of the account code indicates the account’s classification.

Added accounts are displayed in italics in the appropriate place in the chart of accounts. Header accounts are displayed in bold italics.

After the account has been added, only the account name can be edited. If other fields require editing (such as account type or account number), then the account must be deleted and re-added with the correct information.

Added accounts are displayed in italics in the appropriate place in the chart of accounts. Header accounts are displayed in bold and italics.

After the account has been added, only the account name can be edited. If other fields require editing (such as account type or account number), then the account must be deleted and added again with the correct information.

When workpaper preparation has been completed, these newly added accounts are posted to the client’s company file. See Posting journals and exporting new accounts. After this process, the new accounts which have been added to the client ledger can no longer be edited.
