Business value

When working with large journals, it is important to have an easy way to correct mistakes. The Copy Journals function helps your accountant be more productive when correcting mistakes.

Also, when posting accruals at the end of the period, it is important to be able to have full control over reversal entries without much hassle. The Reversal Date Calculation helps your accountants be more in control when handling accruals in recurring general journals.
