Chart of Account Model
The Chart Of Accounts is based on the assumption that all companies have the same Accounting Segment, Currency & Calendar requirement. Accounting structure will use the Company segment as the balancing segment. Each company could have its own range of accounting segments. No segment will be used to capture values of multiple dimensions, eg. Department segment will not be used to capture values identifying Location. Each segment will have a unique meaning.

 Chart of Account Structure
 The chart of accounts will be defined as specified below.

This segment uniquely identifies each individual Entity in the Organization structure. This segment also will be used as the balancing segment.

This segment uniquely identifies each individual department. Departments could be either common to companies or independent. A Numerical Value identifies a specific Department. Alpha numeric parent values will be used as group level identifies.

Location identifies the location of the business activity

Natural Account
An account is used to identify a General Ledger transaction for a specific purpose. Accounts are the fundamental building blocks of Financial Transactions. Transactions are always associated with one or more accounts.

The Natural Account structure has to be designed on a hierarchical model consisting of parent, child and rollup groups.

Sub Account
A sub-account is an optional part of the accounting string that allows tracking of financial activity within a particular account. Sub-accounts are often used to help track numbers when several different activities may be funded by the same account. For example a marketing campaign can constitute of multiple marketing expenses. Since all of the activity is still captured within a single account, it is easy to report on the finances of the overall account. Sub-Accounts acts as an attribute of the account to which it reports The Sub account will constitute list of values that would be defaulted based on the Natural Account value.

The use of this code allows tracking of Transactions on project basis. This allows financial reporting based on projects.

Inter Company
This segment will be used to identify transaction used as intercompany transactions

This segment is maintained for future expansion if any.
