Alternate Codes are also known as Accountant Codes.
By setting up your Accountant Codes you are able to prepare reports (e.g. Cash Trial Balance) for your Accountant using their Chart of Accounts. Establishing the Alternate Codes also allows you to export your information to your Accountant’s software package. Follow these steps to configure your Accountants Codes:
- Start at the Home Page
- Click Setup & Tools
- Click Cash Book Setup
- Click Alternate Codes
- Click in the Acc.Export Code field for Bank/Code Name and enter your Acc. Export Code.
- Click in the Accountant Code Name field for Bank/Code Name and type your Accountants Code Name.
Type your Accountant Export Code here. Repeat for all codes.
Type your Accountant's Code Name here. Repeat for all code names
To create reports accurately using the alternative codes, all of your Bank Accounts and all of your Codes must be given an Accountant Export Code and Name. Export the Cash Book to your Accountants software package via
Home Page > Import/Export Data > Export To Accountant's System
