Slide 58 Sales Tax Slide 59 EOM Sales Tax Report Will reflect AR adjustments (m4.1.2) or AR write-offs (m4.1.1) Will report under the applicable Tax Jurisdiction. An additional report will also follow your EOM AR adjustment report which will list adjustments and write-offs that were made that impact Sales Tax. This report will tie out to the line item on the Composite Sales Tax Report. Slide 60 EOM Sales Tax Report Slide 61 Inventory *See handouts Slide 62 NO easy solution, but you can balance with: Time Effort Attention to detail Slide 63 Potential Problems: 1) Product has been received but not yet vouchered into the Accounts Payable system - Inventory value is updated at receiving time (i.e. as soon as the on-hand increases due to a PO receipt). However, the G/L Inventory is not updated until the vendor invoice has been vouchered and the Inventory G/L account debited for the amount of the merchandise received. 2) Inventory adjustments have not been properly entered into the General Ledger via a Journal Entry - The Daily Inventory Transaction Audit Report that runs with each Day End lists all inventory adjustments that have been made for the day. These adjustments directly affect the product on-hand quantity and consequently the inventory value. A journal entry must be made to the Inventory G/L account for all inventory adjustments made throughout the month to properly reflect these changes in the General Ledger inventory value. Slide 64 Potential Problems (contd): 3) The difference between the PO receipt cost and the vendor-invoiced cost does not agree - It is necessary to properly record any differences between the product cost at PO receiving time and the actual cost invoiced from the vendor. 4) Incorrect use of the Warranty Systemvendor credits do not match credits issued through the warranty claim - When closing warranty claims, vouchers should be expensed only to the Warranty A/R account. Also, when issuing vendor credits, the actual credit amount from the vendor should be used. 5) Incorrect or non-posting of the Inventory Buyback. The Buybacks (rotational or annual) reduces on-hand (and subsequently inventory value). It is therefore necessary to make a journal entry to reflect this change in the G/L inventory value. Slide 65 Potential Problems (contd): 6) Incorrect or non-posting of the Physical Inventory variance - The Physical Inventory process updates on-hand (and subsequently inventory value) at the time the inventory is updated. It is therefore necessary to make a journal entry to reflect this change in the G/L inventory value. 7) PO Receipts posting of items not carried as inventory - Products such as C99 and Z95 items should have then Inventory Bypass flag set to Yes to avoid updating their on-hand (and subsequently inventory) values. Also, these items should not be received, as their on-hand value should always remain at zero. Slide 66 Potential Problems (contd): 8) Failure to utilize 13.20.2 Purchase Order Receipts Update to A/P to record vendor invoices and cost changes - 13.20.2 is the only supported process by which stores, whose desire is to balance Inventory Value to General Inventory, can ensure that what is being entered into the inventory system via PO receipts posting matches that which is entered into the A/P system and subsequently the General Ledger. Care must be taken to match all PO receipts to vendor invoices, with reconciliation and cost discrepancies entered through the Purchase Order Receipts Update to A/P process (13.20.2). Slide 67 Potential Problems (contd): 9) Reopening POs this has negative repercussions on average cost especially when there are multiplier receivers for a purchase order. 10) Manually updating inventory average cost incorrectly this is a privilege that only a select few should have access to. And only if they are well versed on the math calculation that determines average cost. 11) Omitting or incorrectly preparing journal entry for store transfers if this is a manual entry than extra care should be taken to make sure that the debits/credit are handled correctly and from/to the right stores. 12) Making journal entries or AP postings to inventory that you shouldnt rebates, freight, etc. 13) Not accounting for Drop ships correctly both sides of the transaction have to be dropships (DIN and DPO) Slide 68 End of Year Procedures *See handouts Slide 69 End of Year Procedures 1.AR Month-end close rolls into Year End *Confirm with DST 2.Close 12 th month AP 3.Close year AP *MUST happen before entries for new year 4.Close 12 th month GL *Manually Rollover NI (if Separate from Retained Earnings) 5.Close year GL *NO 13 th month Slide 70 Back-up Tapes!
