The dynamic General Ledger can produce up-to-date balance sheets and income statements at any time. No batching or waiting until month-end. In fact, you can forget that month-end exists, because BusinessVision handles it automatically. You can even post transactions into last year (with proper authority), making your year-end a snap! The General Ledger Inquiry function offers five levels of detail. The first level provides an on-screen overview of all General Ledger accounts and present balances, the second shows the net change and closing balances for each month per account, and the third shows every transaction on the General Ledger, starting at the period you select. The fourth and fifth levels permit complete on-screen reconstruction of the journal entry, invoice or purchase order. If desired, the General Ledger may be departmentalized, permitting different departments of a company to record transactions with a unique Chart of Accounts.
