Departments

Top  Previous  Next

Departments: Departments are used to associate General Ledger Accounts with a particular subdivision within the company.  If the Account Type is set to either Revenue, Cost of Goods Sold, Operating Expense, or Other Income/Expense, the Department Code field will be available.

 

For example, a single design firm may have commercial and residential departments.  Assigning a Department to an Account allows the Income Statement to be printed for a single Department or for the company as a whole.  

 

 

You may Add, Edit and Delete Departments by choosing the Edit Dept. List... button on the Account Glossary - Account window.
