Nominal Ledger functions - Journal Entry & Reversing Journals

Nominal Journal Entry is a simple step by step user friendly task.

The user is easily able to modify the Nominal postings by double clicking the preferred nominal account line, opening the Nominal Account search and selecting the relevant nominal account code.

The software system included in the standard functionality allows for the ability to reverse journals.  In essence by reversing a journal within our system, you will create an account transaction with the negative value of the journal being reversed – thus cancelling out the transaction.  This functionality is commonly used for recurring sundry transactions such as electricity bills.  The steps required to reverse a journal are simple, just highlight the required journal and click the reverse icon as detailed below.

Our software also allows Template Journals to be created for Journals that are frequently used such as the monthly wages journal.  The user simply creates a template within the Template Journal workflow stage and then clicks the process icon, to process it though to Journal Entry where any amendments required can be actioned.
