Departments are ways to categorized general
ledger accounts. They are essential for the
user that wants to be able run financial reports that are segmented for business needs. A department for your business may be Services,
Retail, or Aesthetics. You do not need to setup departments if you do not
want any for your accounting system.
SELECT GENERAL LEDGER THEN MAINTAIN DEPARTMENTS
To add departments just select the plus icon. You must enter a department id and name to save a
department. A department must be a number that
does not exceed 4 digits long. We recommend
two digit department numbers if you do not need a lot of departments. You can always setup up departments later in your
implementation. Departments can also be setup
after you have begun your accounting in the software as well.
You cannot delete a department that is in use in your chart of
accounts but you can edit the department name at any time.
You can change the name of the department with out losing any data.
