Books of Accounts Setup




The Books of Accounts master file contains the books of original entry. The system is shipped with pre-defined books of accounts. You can add or delete the books based on your company requirements. If you are required to maintain separate books for the branch, you can create books for each branch but you have to update first the Branch master file.
