The General Ledger already includes your check and deposit details. This program lets you quickly and easily mark outstanding entries and print a report that reconciles your books to your bank statement.

Accounts Payable (accrual basis) $795

Enter payables into the system for payment at a later date. Cash requirements report lists aged payables either by due date, or sorted and subtotaled by due date within each vendor account. Pending payables are grouped or marked individually into either ready or hold status. Books may be kept on either cash or accrual basis. At fiscal year-end, accrual bookkeeping may be reversed for cash basis reporting, and outstanding payables carried forward.

Enterprise Power Budgeting $795

Creates a new year's budget, for each enterprise (cost center), from the grower's database of enterprise income and expense. Changes in acreage or percentage are factored into calculations automatically. Monthly enterprise "budget-to-actual" reports generate variances and remaining budget balances. Enterprise budgets are totaled to create the overall bank budget. The current version builds Excel spreadsheets with complete equations to support "what-if" analysis.
