If you do that so, the system will cancel the effect of the reverse entries. 2) Close Currency Diff: this option means that you have to depend on the system to do the necessary adjustments at the end of the month due to the differences in the foreign currencies rates against the local currency. The system will re-evaluate the foreign accounts balances based on the specified exchange rate added in Currency Data Screen. Then, it makes automatic entries for posting the differences of foreign currencies against local currency to Cash Reverse Account, that is linked to the Intermediate Accounts. If you tick at (mark ) Close Currency Differences check box, the system will display a list of all foreign account names and numbers along with the account currency and exchange rate as shown in the previous figure. Here, it will be possible to deal with the accounts using three different methods for evaluating the accounts: a. Evaluating All Accounts: In this case, the system will evaluate all the foreign accounts using the exchange rate against each currency and make the necessary adjustments in local currency for the differences resulting from the process of re-evaluation. The system will then close the differences in
109

exchange rates account, that was linked to Intermediate Accounts. b. Canceling the Selected Accounts: In this case, the user will unmark the Accounts check boxes. This will enable the user to select and mark only the desired accounts that he/she needs from the system to make the adjustments of currency differences at the time of monthly closing. c. Enter Part of Ac. Code: when the user input part of the account number in this field and click on this button will mark all accounts starting with the number you specified. The system will make the currency difference adjustments only for the accounts that start with the number you specified.

Annual Closing As shown in the folowing figure. 5-1, the process of Annual Closing is made in successive steps in four different screens. These steps are: Profits and Losses Closing Create New Year (Activity) Inventory Closing Accounts Closing

It has been divided into these four steps to avoid any troubles that may occur during the process of closing. It must be noted that in order to carry out the annual closing successfully, all suspended data and transactions during the year to be closed must be fully completed. This will enable the system to transfer the data and balances precisely to the new fiscal year. In this part, we will discuss the four steps of annual closing in details.

A. Profits and Losses closing screen Through this screen, you can close all the accounts of profits and losses that are available under the Profits and Losses account in the Charts of Accounts. Normally, this account exists within the Liabilities account. This screen can be displayed from Annual Closing Screen- System Administration Transactions Menu. Before you start Profits and Losses closing, and in order to make sure that the process of closing is carried out successfully, the following steps must be checked at first: 1) Make sure that all financial adjustments that have effect on the evaluation of the expenditures and revenues accounts have been carried out completely. 2) Make sure that all months of the fiscal year have been closed. Otherwise, you will not enable to close process Profits and Losses accounts unless all months are closed.
111

3) It is preferred to issue the trail balance as well as the profits and losses reports before you start the process of closing.

Figure 68: Profits & Losses Closing Screen

To close the Profits and Losses Accounts, follow these easy steps: 1) Input account number of Profits and Losses or just press on F9 to select the account. 2) Then click on .

112

B. Create New Year Though Clicking on "Create New Year" option in Annual Closing Screen Administration Transaction Menu, you will open the Create New Year screen as shown in the following figure. This screen enables you to open the accounting records of the new fiscal year. The system will open the new fiscal year having exactly the similar configurations of the ended year. Hence, there is no need to carry out any configurations in the new fiscal year. It should be noted that the process of creating a new year has been chosen to be carried out on a separate screen in order to handle the transactions of the new fiscal year independently. That is, in this screen, it will be possible to close the ended fiscal year even if the closing procedures were not complete. In this case, the system will take the balances of the ended fiscal year as opening balances in the new fiscal year, provided that the first month of the new fiscal year should not be closed before you complete the closing procedures of the ended fiscal year. Therefore, when a fiscal year is closed, the system will transfer the following records to the new fiscal year: 1) All configuration screens data in all the system modules. 2) Users' data and details along with the privileges of every user. 3) The Chart of Accounts, Cost Centers, Funds, and Banks available in the inputs of General Ledger Module. 4) Details of the groups, items, warehouses, shelves, and items prices in the inputs of Inventory Module. 5) Details of incoming items and vendors in the inputs of Accounts Receivable Module. 6) Details of customers' types, collectors, regions, customers, and sales Representatives in the inputs of Accounts Payable Module. 7) Cheques that are due in the new fiscal year. Here, the system will create a serialization method for numbering the Payment and
113

Receipt Vouchers of these cheques in the new fiscal year. It is also possible to transfer the same serial numbers of these cheques used in the ended year. Notice that you can modify any of the transferred data to the new fiscal year unless transactions have been made in the new fiscal year. For example, you can delete any customer if there has been no transactions made in his account.

114

C. Inventory Closing

This screen is used for transfer the inventory balances from the ended (closed) fiscal year to the new fiscal year as opening balances. The system has been made flexible so that the closing procedures of the inventory can be postponed though, in accounting, the closing procedures of the inventory should be carried out on the last day of the fiscal year. This feature is provided with Onyx Pro in order not to stop working on the system even if the closing procedures of the inventory have not been completed yet. The system allows transferring the inventory balances by using any of the two options shown in the following figure.

Figure 70: Inventory Closing Screen

115

1) On Hand (available) Quantity In this case, the inventory quantities that have been entered in the "Inventory" screen and were processed by Inventory Receipt and Issue Orders. Hence, this option means that the available stock balance and will be transferred to the new fiscal year. Accordingly, when you click on the button of closing , the system will transfer the balances from the warehouses of the ended year to the warehouses of the new fiscal year even if there is no quantity in the "Inventory" screen. You should take into your account that adjustments should be made in the ended fiscal year as well as in the new fiscal year based on the physical inventory data of items.
2)

Physical Inventory: If you select this option, the inventory quantities that have been entered, but were not processed, will be transferred. This option means the actual balances after the inventory have been entered in the Manual Stocktaking Screen of the Inventory module; and onwhich no adjustments were made on the approved quantities in the warehouses in order to correct the available quantities in the system. Accordingly, click on the button of closing , the system will transfer the balances that have been entered previously in Stocktaking Screen as opening balances of the new fiscal year,whose quantity differ from their inventory quantity. Notice here that adjustments should be made in the ended fiscal year only so as to equal the balnce with the opening balances of the new fiscal year.

116

D. Accounts Closing This is the last step of annual closing procedures. This screen is used for transferring all the final balances of the ended fiscal to be the opening balances of the new fiscal year provided that all adjustments transactions in the ended year have been made completely.

Introduction What Is General Ledger? General Ledger is a means by which you can measure the financial health of your company. In accounting terms, the General Ledger records each transaction coming into or going out of your company that involves the exchange of money, or involves an increase or decrease in the overall value of your company. These transactions can include everything from cash receipts to depreciation on equipment; all such transactions should be reflected in General Ledger. In order to record a transaction, you should enter the amount into an account. The full set of your accounts is called the Chart of Accounts. Furthermore, as you examine the detail and later the summary of the activity in each account, you can analyze the efficiency and the profitability of your business. There are many types of accounts in the Chart of Accounts. The broadest subdivision of accounts separates them into Assets, which are generally tangible, valuable items that your company owns; Liabilities, which are legal obligations your company owes to its creditors; and Owners Equity, which reflects the amounts that various individuals or companies have invested in your business. When a business first begins, the only equity available is the initial investment made by the owner of the business (the Owners Equity). As the company grows, it purchases goods, services, supplies, and equipment; these items are necessary to conduct business. In so doing, the company acquires liabilities; the liabilities represent what the company owes its creditors. Most businesses have creditors, and since the creditors have first claim on the companys assets, we come to the basic rule of accounting, which is: Assets = Liabilities + Owners Equity
124

This means that the dollar value of your total assets is equal to the sum of the value of your liabilities and the value of your owners equity. Asset accounts are also sometimes referred to as debit accounts; liability and equity accounts are also sometimes referred to as credit accounts. This simply means that the balance in each type of account is typically either a debit amount (denoted DR) or a credit amount (denoted CR). For ease of recognition, ONYX PRO General Ledger assumes that when you enter a positive amount you are entering a debit, and when you enter a negative amount you are entering a credit. The General Ledger Module is the source of financial information and reporting for your organization. The General Ledger System (GLS) is the core system to the integrated Financial Accounting System ONYX Pro. All the financial data of the ONYX Pro System is stored in this system. This is where data from all modules comes together and where most of the financial reporting is done. Many of the screens set up here are used by other modules throughout the system. Some of the data is fed to the GLS from other financial systems.The General Ledger system provides an organizational and accounting framework for processing transactions in the General Ledger system, other Yemensoft applications. This framework is made up of: charts of accounts that contain balance sheet and income statement accounts for posting and reporting, companies and accounting units that represent business units in your organization, company relationships used to post transactions from one part of your organization to another, currency codes that represent the currencies you conduct business in and associated currency rates for exchange and translation, and calendars that define the fiscal year, accounting periods, and valid posting date ranges for a company. You must define this framework before you set up and use the other modules.

125

The following diagram illustrates the other financial accounting modules of YEMENSOFT that can be fully integrated with the General Ledger Module.

The General Ledger module allows all types of accounting bookkeeping, either the financial or the production processes. Since the effects on various accounts and the issuance of reports are the most important processes in accounting, we found that the process of posting must have a particular menu. The entitled user to the processes of posting is entitled to check and review the financial transactions after saving them by other users. Therefore, posting is very important in accounting because it achieves various objectives, which can be summarized as follows: 1) Posting the financial transactions in form of accounting entries to the Journal Voucher in order to maintain a balanced budget (i.e., balanced amounts in the debit and credit sides) as well as to obtain safe reports and financial lists. Posting the financial transactions that contain the above mentioned Journal Voucher to the assistant accounting books (the General Ledger) in a detailed form for each individual account. After posting, the system will enable to obtain all relevant financial reports available in the Onyx Pro system. After posting any voucher and making effects on the accounts, it is not possible to modify or delete that voucher. However, the user can make modifications to such vouchers provided he/she has the appropriate privilege to unpost the voucher and then carry out the necessary modifications.

2)

3) 4)

The menu of Posting can be accessed from the Transactions Menu of the General Ledger by clicking on Posting menu. Each option in this menu represents a screen. These screens are very important because they are used to affect balances financially when a transaction is made through any of the screens of the system. Subsequently, this menu has been designed for posting the documents to the accounting books and records after the process of auditing.

154

Figure 96: Menu 0f Posting

As it is a clear from the previous figure, the system allows posting any document of the available documents in the system easily. All those documents have similar methods of posting. Lets discuss the process of posting payment vouchers:

155

Figure 97: Payment Vouchers Posting Screen

We will explain only the process of posting Payment Vouchers as an example of posting any other voucher shown in the Posting menu. As you can see, there are four methods for posting Payment Vouchers. These methods are: 1) Posting vouchers by specific day: In this case, the process of posting is carried out for vouchers of a specific date. When the user selects Day option, the system will open a Date field for determining the date of vouchers that are desired to be posted. Then he have to click on the button of posting ( ).

When you are done, click on the button of posting ( to post all vouchers that are specified by this period. )

157

3) Posting by document number In this case, the process of posting is made for vouchers of a specific numbers. By clicking on the Doc No. option, the system will display two fields ("From Doc" and "To" fields) for determining the numbers of the first and last voucher numbers and that are desired to be posted. When you are done, When you are done, click on the button of posting ( numbers. ) in order to post all vouchers that are specified by voucher

158

4) Posting by selective number of vouchers This option allows posting vouchers according to a selected number of vouchers. After choosing the Selective option, a list of the available vouchers in the system will pop up as in the following figure. To perform the process of posting according to this option, follow these steps: 1. Input the date of posting. 2. Determine the vouchers you want to post by clicking and marking () inside the respective check boxes. 3. Then click on .

If you select the Cash option, you have to specify the fund from the Cash/Bank field. Similarly, when you select the Cheque option, you should determine the bank name from the Cash/Bank field.
159

The Inventory Management module keeps a detailed accounting of inventory quantities, and at the same time, provides in-depth cost and salesinformation to help you make purchasing and pricing decisions. A number of options allow you to create a flexible system that adapts to your requirements instead of requiring you to change your business to accommodate the system. For example, every item can be assigned a separate costing method (Standard Cost, Average Cost, LIFO, FIFO, or Serial Number). You can maintain inventory for a single location, classify items of similar types into categories. This module has been designed and developed professionally so that it can be either integrated or separated from the other modules of the system ( G.L Purchases Sales influences according to your requirements. It can be configured flexibly to meet your needs.

Figure 98: Inventory Module

160

After completing the phase of Inventory Configuration, there is also an important phase to make the system ready to be used. This phase is inputs entry of Inventory Management Module. These inputs are regarded as the spine of Inventory Management Module because it cant be used without these inputs.

Figure 99: Inputs Menu

161

Main Groups Data This screen is considered as the most important screen of inventory screens for a number of reasons. The first reason is that it is considered as the main spine of inventory chart. The second is that it has been specified to be used for getting more detailed analysis than the analysis accounts chart. The third reason is that it is used for getting more detailed reports such as dividing the office equipments to furniture, stationary and so on. Moreover, it helps user to connect warehouses with accounts by connecting the warehouses groups with the accounts that have been prepared previously in the chart of accounts ( in the case of selecting the variable connection by warehouse group). As a result of this connection, the system creates the accounting constraints of transactions automatically. To add the main groups of warehouses through this screen, follow the following steps: 1- Click on . 2- Input the group Name. 3- Then Click .

Figure 99: Main Groups Data Screen

As you can see, this screen consists of three sub-screens: Main Group Data Screen, Statistics Screen, and Privileges. The Second sub-screen is used for issuing a detailed report about the cost of any group by warehouses.
162

However, the third one is used by the system administrator to determine the users privileges.

163

Sub- Groups Data This screen is optional to be used, but it used for inputting the second level of inventory division. In other words, it is used for dividing the main groups into subgroups. For example, you can divide Clothes Groups into (Clothes of Men, Clothes of Women, Kids Clothes, fashion Clothes, classic clothes,etc).Thus, it play a crucial role in issuing inventory reports by the sub-group.

Figure100: Sub-groups Data Screen

164

Under Sub-groups Data This screen is an optional to be used. However, it helps the user to input the third level of inventory groups division.

Figure101: Under Sub-groups Data Screen

165

Assistant & Detailed Groups Data These screens are optional to be used. On the other hand, they allow the user to input the fourth and fifth levels of the inventory divisions. They help the user in inputting any type of items classification. For example, it allows classifying items by the manufacturing company, vendor, or items nature.

Figure102: Assistant groups Data Screen

Figure103: Detailed groups Data Screen

166

What is Accounts Payable?


Account Payable is a means by which you can monitor the disbursement of money from your company. Simply put, Accounts Payable records and pays a companys bills or liabilities. When a liability or debt is incurred, the vendor to whom the money is owed issues an invoice. Besides the total money owed, the invoice usually contains information about any discount the vendor may offer as an incentive to pay the invoice in a timely fashion, and when the total amount of the invoice is due (the terms of the invoice); the products or service s purchased; and the amount of freight or tax attributed to the purchase. The debt or the liability is recorded into Accounts Payable when you enter the invoice. Normally, when you post an invoice the system credits, or increases, the balance in a liability account. The examples of the liability accounts are interest payable, Income Tax Payable, Mortgages Payable, An Account Payable. The corresponding debit amount usually increases the balance in some type of expense, inventory, or work in process account. If the General Ledger is part of your system, Account Payable Postings also update the General Ledger balances, providing you with up- to date financial information. Sometimes, after the invoice has been received and entered but before the due date of the invoice, you should pay the vendor for the purchase . Through using Accounts Payable ,you can pay the vendor by one of two methods. The first method is called hand cheque. A hand cheque is either typed or hand written, sent to the vendor, and then recorded in Accounts payable application through a data entry process . The second method of payment is an automatic or machine cheque. A machine
200

cheque is created, printed, and posted through the Cheque Processing function in the Accounts Payable application. Cheques are created for invoices that have been entered into the system and for which payment will be due prior to the next cheque processing cycle. The Cheque cycle is normally performed multiple times during an accounting period and pro-dues numerous cheques each time. When posted, both invoice payment methods debit (decrease ) the liability and credit (decrease) the balance in the Cash account on which cheque was drawn. Hand cheques can also be used for payments of purchases which you have not previously recorded in Accounts Payable through entry of an invoice. This type of payment is called direct disbursement or direct expense. With a direct disbursement, the only record of the purchase or expense is the qheque itself and no liability is incurred. Consequently, entry of a direct disbursement debits ( increases) the balance of the expense account instead of decreasing the liability. As with all cheques, the offsetting credit amount decreases the balance in the Cash account. Direct disbursements are entered into the system using the Hand Cheques entry function. Adjustments can be entered to make changes to invoices that you have already posted. You can adjust the amount for an adjustment to change the expense account to which the invoice was posted. Yemensoft Accounts Payable module accommodates the need for accurate and timely payables that follow your standard procedures as well as those times when proactive cash management calls for overriding the rules. You have the flexibility you need for effective cash management because you, not the system, manage your workflow. At each stage in the workflow, you designate the next step and the system calculates taxes, discounts, and currency conversions according to your specifications. With the Accounts Payable module , you can streamline the day-to-day functions of your entire accounts payable department and improve communication and reporting among your personnel.
