DHA General Ledger maintains the General Ledger and the Income Statement files. Subsidiary journals are closed into the ledger to make most of the ledger posting automatic. Journal entries are used for transactions that are not processed in other modules of the DHA General Accounting Series. Journal entries are automatically self balancing.
Transactions from the bank, payables, and receivables are condensed to sub-totals and maintained in the ledger as a single entry for all the transactions for each period. You can let these entries accumulate for the entire year or you can run a balance forward to eliminate the detail, making a single entry for the balance at the time the balance forward was run.
Using the suggested chart of accounts, codes are assigned to each expense account and ledger account. Two letters are used to identify the account. A third letter may be used to departmentalize expenses or to subdivide ledger accounts. This unique feature of the DHA Ledger allows ledger codes you can remember, like ADM for Advertising Direct - Mail. Numerical codes are also available, with 4 digits and a 2 digit sub-account (9999.99).
Income statements and balance sheets may be customized to your own personal needs simply by modifying the control file template.
The system avoids the use of debits/credits because they are confusing for non-accountants. All account balances are kept as positive balances. To increase the account balance, a plus(+) sign is used. To decrease the balance, a minus(-) sign is used. You can, however, cause liabilities to be printed as normally negative amounts if desired.
Most of the system entries are posted automatically from cash, receivables, and payables. Both the main entry and the offsets are taken care of automatically.
Changes in format to the balance sheet and income statement are easily made permitting several statement formats for different purposes. For example, one report might have all the detail, another only subtotals.
