Posted on by 60

Hello Community,

I have set up the job costing module in Dynamics BC.  However i need some assistance on the accounting GL Entries (Dr/CR) GL account to set up for the following method

1) Percentage Completion method

What GL entries will happen when you consume a Item and what GL account will be used and transferred to WIP and COsts.

1) COS method

What GL entries will happen?

I need the accounting GL accounts (B./S or I/S)  There are so much interim account that it is very confusing to know what is happening on the GL entries.

Grateful if someone can direct me to the Accounting entries and simple way to set up these intermediaries  accounts.

Any advise and help will be highly appreciated.

Best Regards

    if you look into Job Posting Group you can see defined account. Then depends on which Job Posting Group you assigned to Job you can determine G/L account. Please see below article. I hope it help. 

    Basically for % completed it happens in WIP accounts that you have setup in Job Posting Group. When you use Post WIP to G/L it reverse all WIP interim accounts and post to G/L that you defined in Job Posting Group.
