Sage Intacct: General Ledger

Sage Intacct's general ledger is designed with maximum flexibility, visibility and scalability in mind. Your company can be given unlimited room to grow, from inception to the IPO and much further. The general ledger is at the epicentre of your financial system and offers you deep, real-time insight into your business, and Sage Intacct's general ledger offers the most innovative and flexible financial architecture available on the market today. Your entire accounting and financial management process can be easily handled in one place, with project accounting, automated revenue recognition and much more.

Key benefits

Sage Intacct revolutionises general ledger design, introducing dimension values over old fashioned account segments. This allows you to accurately capture the business context of all budgets, measures and transactions. Your chart of accounts is simplified and you can easily track performance by customer, fund, project or any other business driver you can think of.

Financials for multiple entities can be easily managed across locations, both domestic and global. Multi-entity management speeds up a whole range of processes by centralizing inter-entity relationship setup, automating currency conversions and consolidating your financials at the touch of a button.

View all your multiple accounting standards in a single system, tracking performance on GAAP, U.S, IFRS and cash bases positioned side by side for easy visibility, and country, tax or industry-specific reporting is made simple.

Sage Intacct's general ledger enables a more efficient period end by allowing you to close your sub-ledgers independently in stages, or all at once depending on what suits you best. Business as usual can continue during your close period by only closing one ledger and keeping the others open to continue processing transactions.
