Entering a Year-End Closing Journal Entry


Many organizations follow specific procedures to generate special journal entries to close and
open fiscal years. These closing entries apply to both the income statement and balance sheet.
Auditable closing procedures vary considerably, depending on country reporting requirements,
generally accepted accounting practices in a country, and organization business needs.

Oracle General Ledger enables you to create actual closing journals for year-end and other
closing periods. If your organization has multiple legal entities, you can create closing journals
for multiple ledgers simultaneously with ledger sets. You also have added security through data
access sets because you can only run the closing journals programs against ledgers you have full
read and write access to through your data access set.

In this procedure, you use the Journals page to enter a year-end closing journal entry.

• Ensure the period you are closing is an Open period.
• Complete your routine accounting before the last day of the year.
• Post your adjustments and closing entries in the adjusting period.
• Define your ledger set if you plan to submit the closing journals programs for
multiple ledgers simultaneously.
7 In the last adjusting period of the fiscal year you want to close, you should:
. • Run the Create Income Statement Closing Journals process to transfer income
statement year-end account balances of your revenue and expense accounts to the
retained earnings account.
• Run the Create Balance Sheet Closing Journals process to close and zero out the
year-to-date balances of all balance sheet accounts: assets, liabilities, and owner's
equity.

Opening a New Period


When you open a new accounting period, General Ledger prepares the new period for journal
entry.

If you open a new period when average balance processing is enabled, the system also:
• Populates the aggregates table. PTD, QTD, and YTD aggregate balances are created for each
balance sheet account. As transactions are posted throughout the period,General Ledger updates
these aggregates, using the transaction effective date to determine which daily balances to update.
• Initializes aggregate balances. PTD aggregates are set to zero. QTD and YTD aggregates are
only initialized if the new period is the beginning of a quarter or a year, respectively. Otherwise,
the ending QTD and YTD aggregates from the previous period are carried forward as the
beginning balance of the new period. When you open a new year, General Ledger sets the non-
postable income account back to zero. The beginning balance of retained earnings is set to the
sum of the prior year's ending balance, plus the ending balance of the non-postable net income
account (zero).

In this topic, you will open a new period using the Open and Close Periods page.

Archiving Journals
You can archive and purge account balances, as well as journal batches, entries, lines, and
associated journal references for one or more accounting periods, provided the periods are
permanently closed. Except for translated balances, you must archive balances or journals before
you can purge them.

Your data access set must provide full ledger access to the ledger in order to archive and purge its
balances and journals. Full ledger access means that you have full read and write access to the
ledger and all of its balancing segment values or management segment values.

To ensure better control over your archiving and purging process, we recommend that you
perform your archive and purge in separate steps. If possible, run the archive utility when no
users are on the system. This avoids degrading performance and response time during business
hours.

In this topic, you will archive journals.

Consolidating Transactions
When you consolidate transactions, you can only use the Standard Usage type. Oracle General
Ledger creates a single consolidation journal batch, consisting of your subsidiary's transactions
and their corresponding effective dates. When you post the consolidating journal entries in the
parent ledger, Oracle General Ledger updates the standard balances and the corresponding
average balances automatically (as they are when you post non–consolidation journal batches).

To consolidate transactions, both your parent and subsidiary ledger must use the same ledger
currency.

In this topic, you will consolidate transactions.

Consolidating Balances
To consolidate average balances when you are using the balances consolidation method, you
must use an average balance consolidation ledger. You specify whether a ledger can be used for
average balance consolidation purposes at the same time that
you define your ledger.

Average Balance Consolidation ledgers, unlike other ledgers where average balance processing is
enabled, do not enforce a link between standard and average balances. As a result, you can update
standard and average balances independently. In ledgers that are not defined as average balance
consolidation ledgers, both standard and average balances are updated automatically whenever
transactions are posted.

You can consolidate standard or average balances independently into an average balance
consolidation ledger. You can also consolidate standard and average balances in a single
consolidation run. When you run your consolidation, General Ledger will create two
consolidation journal batches:
• Standard-updates standard balances without affecting average balances.
• Average-updates average balances without affecting standard balances.

In this topic, you will consolidate balances.

Running Simple Reports


Simple Reports consist of a few headings to describe the information in the report, followed by
the report data, which is often presented in tabular form as a series of intersecting rows and
columns similar to what you might create in a spreadsheet. The rows and columns determine the
values which appear in the body of a simple report, by virtue of the attributes those rows and
columns possess.

You can request reports from the Run Individual Reports page or through standard request
submission (Submit Requests page).

In this topic, you will run a simple report using the Run Individual Reports page.

Viewing Ledger Sets


Ledger Sets enable you to group multiple ledgers that share the same Chart of Accounts (COA)
and calendar combination. Essentially, Ledger Sets allow you to treat multiple ledgers as one. For
example, you can open and close periods for multiple ledgers in a ledger set in a single
submission by submitting the new Open and Close Periods programs from the Submit Request
page.

You need perform an Account Inquiry to retrieve balances by ledger and account. You can
compare the same account balance across multiple ledgers and ledger currencies.

Page 412
Training Guide
Oracle EBS R12 General Ledger

When querying on ledger sets, you can view account balances by ledger. The balance is not a
summation across multiple ledgers. To obtain a summation across ledgers, you must use
Financial Statement Generator.

The same ledger can belong to multiple ledger sets, and ledger sets can contain other ledger sets.

In this topic, you will review the ledger set.

Entering a Journal with Conversion Rounding Differences


Conversion rounding refers to the currency amounts that are converted and accounted for using
the same rounding rules used throughout Oracle Applications products. The reporting currency
also considers several factors that are a part of all the currencies predefined in Oracle
Applications, including the following:
• Currency Precision: the number of digits to the right of the decimal point used in regular
currency transactions.
• Extended Precision: the number of digits to the right of the decimal point used in calculations
for the currency.
• Minimum Accountable Unit: the smallest denomination used in the currency. Note: This might
not correspond to the precision.

In this procedure, you will enter a foreign currency journal entry in the Enter Journals page that
requires conversion rounding.

.

6 When a standard foreign currency journal is created in Oracle General Ledger, the
. conversion to the ledger currency or reporting currency may result in rounding
differences (the difference between the debit and credit amounts).

There are two methods in which rounding differences are handled in Oracle General
Ledger when a standard foreign currency journal is created:
•If you have not specified a rounding imbalances account in the source ledger, the
rounding difference is posted to the journal line with the largest amount.
• If you have specified a rounding imbalances account, the rounding difference is
posted to the rounding imbalances account.

Journal or Subledger Level Reporting Currencies


Journal or Subledger-Level Reporting Currencies includes information on entering and reporting
currencies.

Upon completion of this lesson, you will be able to:


• Enter reporting currencies.
• Use reporting currencies.

Entering Reporting Currencies


Reporting Currencies are integrated with ledgers. You specify the reporting currency as a part of
the ledger with which you are working.

If you use Reporting Currencies, (Journal or Subledger Level), when you post the original
journals in your source ledger, General Ledger automatically generates journals in your reporting
currencies where the entered currency amounts have been converted to the reporting currency
amounts.

If budgetary control is enabled, all journals in a batch must be entered for the same ledger. When
the budgetary control batch is posted, however, posting may generate additional journals for
reporting currencies within the same batch.

In this topic, you will enter reporting currencies.

Using Reporting Currencies


Reporting Currencies are integrated with ledgers. You specify the reporting currency as a part of
the ledger with which you are working. Reporting currency is flexible. You can maintain
additional currency representations at three different levels:
• Balance level.
• Journal level.
• Subledger level.

You can use the Reporting Currencies for:


• Entering Data into Reporting Currencies.
• Performing Standard General Ledger Activities.
• Completing Reporting Currencies.

You should be cautious about performing any activity other than reporting when you are using a
reporting currency. This is especially true of entering or importing new journals into your
reporting currency, since journals are only converted and replicated from your ledger to your
reporting currencies - not the other way around.

In this topic, you will enter the data in the reporting currency.

Creating a Responsibility for the Controller


A Responsibility is a level of authority in Oracle Applications that lets users access only those
Oracle Applications functions and data appropriate to their role in an organization. Each
responsibility allows access to a specific application or applications, a ledger, a restricted list of
pages, a restricted list of functions, and reports in a specific application.

These responsibilities help you provide the appropriate level of access to your users' need to
• perform inquiry and reporting activities in your reporting currencies
• perform specific processes, such as run depreciation, post/transfer/interface to General Ledger,
and run revaluation

In this topic, you will create a responsibility for the Controller.

.
A security rule element applies to all segment values included in the value range
you specify. Identify each security rule element as either Include or Exclude, where
Include includes all values in the specified range, and Exclude excludes all values
in the specified range.

Every security rule must have at least one Include rule element, since a security
rule automatically excludes all values unless you specifically include them.

Note: Exclude rule elements override Include rule elements.

You should always include any default values you use in your segments or
dependent value sets. If the default value is secured, the flexfield window erases
it from the segment as the window opens, and the user must enter a value manually.
If you want to specify a single value to include or exclude, enter the same value in
both the Low and High fields.

Defining a Ledger
The Ledger represents the core of a company's financial records where every transaction is
accountable in a self-contained way. A ledger provides balanced ledger accounting for the
accounting entity and serves as the repository of financial information. Consequently, it is the
principal source of information for the analytical applications in the Oracle E-Business Suite.

You can define a ledger with average balance processing enabled or you can define a
consolidation ledger that will be used to consolidate average balances. In a typical ledger where
average balance processing is enabled, the standard and average balances are linked, since the
average balances are derived from the standard balances.

Page 628
Training Guide
Oracle EBS R12 General Ledger

Define a ledger before enabling budgetary control for the ledger. Leave the enable budgetary
control option set to No for the ledger until you are ready to complete all setup steps for
budgetary control.

You define the attributes of a ledger, such as Accounting Calendar, Ledger Currency, Chart of
Accounts and Subledger Accounting Method in Accounting Setup Manager.

In this topic, you will define a ledger.

Custom General Ledger Reports


Custom General Ledger Reports includes information on creating and running various general
ledger reports.

Upon completion of this lesson, you will be able to:


• Create a row set.
• Run an ad-hoc row set report.
• Run a row set detail and summary report.
• Create a column set.
• Create a column set heading.
• Run a column set ad-hoc-report.
• Run column set detail and summary reports.
• Define a content set.

Creating a Row Set


A Row Set defines the format and content of the rows in an FSG report. In Financial Statement
Generator, the commonly assumed attribute for a row definition is an account assignment,
whereas the attribute for a column definition is a time period (amount type). When you define a
row set, you can:
• Assign accounts - to indicate which general ledger account balances you want to include in the
row.
• Define calculations - to perform a variety of complex computations in your report.
• Specify formatting - to control page breaks, indentation, line spacing, and underline characters.
• Secure row set definitions - to only allow specific row sets to be used, viewed, or modified by
certain users.

In this topic, you will create a row set.

Creating a Column Set


A column set defines the format and content of the columns in an Financials Statements
Generator (FSG) report. In FSG, the commonly assumed attribute for a column definition is a
time period (amount type), whereas the attribute for a row definition is an account assignment.
Therefore, typical column sets include headings and subheadings, amount types, format masks,
currency
assignments, and calculation columns for totals.

In this procedure, you will create a column set in the Column Set window.

Step Action
5 From the Column Set page, you can do the following:
.
• Specify account balance types to include in the column. For example, you can define
a column with actual, budget, or encumbrance amounts.
• Create Headings for your columns. You can also create relative headings, which
change depending on the period of interest specified when you run the report.
• Define calculations to perform a variety of complex computations in your report. The
calculations can refer to any previous columns in the report, including rows you choose
not to display.
• Specify formatting using format masks, which determine how numbers in your report
are displayed.
• Secure column set definitions to allow only specific column sets to be used, viewed,
or modified by certain users.

In this procedure, you will create a column set.

Defining a Content Set


By assigning a content set to a report request, you can generate hundreds of similar reports in a
single run. The content set controls how the numerous reports differ from each other. For
example, assume your organization has 50 departments and that Department is one of your
account segments. Also assume that you already have an FSG report for travel expenses, which
you run weekly. By using a content set with your existing report definition, you can print a travel
expense report for each department, in one report request. You can then distribute the reports to
the 50 department managers for review purposes.

Content sets are similar to row sets and actually work their magic by overriding the row set
definition of an existing report. The subtle report variations discussed in the previous paragraph
are achieved by the content set altering the row set account assignments and/or display options.

You cannot use content sets with XBRL output. If you choose a content set function, such as page
expand, the report will error.

In this topic, you will define a content set.
