Add of Edit Distribution Codes

Before you start

  • Make sure General Ledger's chart of accounts includes the accounts you want to use in bank entries.

To add or edit a distribution code:

  1. Open Bank Services > Bank Setup > Distribution Codes.
  2. Enter a unique code to identify the type of transaction, using up to six alphanumeric characters, or, if you want to edit or delete an existing distribution code, use the navigation buttons or the Finder to select it.
  3. Enter a description for the code, using up to 60 characters, or edit the description, as needed.
  4. In the G/L Account field, use the Finder to select the account to debit or credit when you post bank transactions that use this distribution code.
  5. On the grid at the bottom of the form, using a separate line for each tax authority payable for this type of transaction:
    • In the Tax Authority field, type the code for the tax authority, or use the Finder to select it.
    • In the Tax Class field, change the tax class, if necessary.
    • Double-click the Tax Included field to change the entry from No to Yes, as permitted by the tax authority. (The program displays a message if the tax authority does not allow included taxes.)
  6. Click Add or Save, and then click Close.

  • After adding distribution codes, you can:
