Business Case for SLA changes Product Line Accounting Use separate sub-accounts to denote your product line for variances, cost of goods sold and inventory


Accounting Touchpoints Every single transaction that ships has an effect on Shipment Inventory Cost Deferred COGS Invoicing COGS Receivables Revenue Unearned Revenue12

Accounting Touchpoints Every single inventory and WIP transaction you use PO Receipts PO Deliveries Material Issues WIP Completions Cost Updates Subinventory Transfers Over 20 SLA transaction events to change13

Business Case for SLA changes Cost Accounting Standard SLA will book purchase receipts with the following rules: Cost Management Default Use the same offset accounts as normally used pre-SLA Use the same receiving, inventory and WIP valuation accounts Use the same variance and COGS accounts


SLA changes Two approaches:

Use Existing Sources and the Category Accounts No custom sources Have to set up category accounts for each subinventory or costing


Create Custom Source for Item Master COGS Account Have to set up a custom source Use the item master COGS account so overall you have less setup15

SLA changes Product Line AccountingChanges to make configuration changes to achieve the requirement1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

Custom Sources (depending on the approach) or Category Accounts Setup Account Derivation Rule (default Cost Management Account Derivation is now standard) Create Custom Journal Line Definitions and assign the Account Derivation Rule (over 20 journal lines types, depending on which transactions you use) Link Custom Journal Line Definitions to Application Accounting Definition Link Application Accounting Definition to Subledger Accounting Method Link Subledger Accounting Method to a Ledger16

SLA changes default ADR


SLA changes line assignments Example for Receiving Events: Need to change both the receipt and deliver

Reporting using SLA data tables Many reports now are generated from the SLA tables, given below are a few Account Analysis (all modules) Accounts Payable Trial Balance Accounting Report while running Create Accounting

All account query capability is now drill-down through the SLA28

Other capabilities of SLA SLA Transactions and Balances SLA maintains its own Journal Entries and Balances as a middle level to maintain these data sets before they flow to GL Third Party Control Account Balances Track balances by account and Customer/Supplier Statutory reporting requirement in certain countries Store an unlimited number of sources as supporting references on the accounting entries Optionally track balances by account and supporting reference Track balances by originating transactions and downstream applied transactions
