The General Ledger and Subledger contain records of the debit and credit entries for all GL Account transactions stored in AlayaCare.
You can export the General Ledger and Subledger in order to import the data into your agency's accounting software from Accounting>Accounting Exports. To learn more about exporting the General Ledger and Subledger, see How do I create a new Accounting Export?
The General Ledger provides a record of the total of debit and credit entries for each GL Account by the month of the entry's Posting Date.
When you export your General Ledger, the file will contain the following fields:
- Date: the last day of the month in which the account transactions were posted.
- Reference: the ID generated for the monthly total of the GL account.
- Account Number: the number of the GL Account.
- Debit: if the overall change to the account during the posting month is a debit, the total will appear in this column.
- Credit: if the overall change to the account during the posting month is a credit, the total will appear in this column.
Note that only items on invoices that are Paid or Sent will appear when exporting your General Ledger. Items on draft invoices will not appear.
The Subledger provides a record of all entries for all transaction types in AlayaCare. Every transaction will have at least two entries -- one for debiting an account and one for crediting an account.
For example, a Sale transaction resulting from an invoice will have one entry representing an AR debit and at least one entry representing a credit to a revenue account. There may also be a credit to a liability account in the case of taxes.
The total number of debit entries for a given transaction must equal the total number of credits.
