Associate Accounts with Budget Codes
Thank you for your query.
Budgets (&/or Forecast &/or Plan values) are loaded against a specific Account by Department or Division as outlined here:
Adaco: Creating or Importing a Budget or Forecast or Plan
The Budget Code is a way of grouping Account values on reports such as the Adaco: Checkbook Accounting Report or Fourth Analytics Adaco: Budgets. Our recommended best practice is to align Budget Code names with the sections of the company's P&L that are relevant to the usage of Adaco (ignoring Revenues, Payroll & Related expenses, etc.), e.g.:
- Balance Sheet (Assets/Liabilities)
- Cost of Sales
- Other Operating Expenses
- Management Fees
For example, there would be a Budget/Forecast/Plan loaded for the individual Accounts of China, Glass, Silverware, & Linen which can be viewed when approving Purchase Requisitions per Account; the reports will then also subtotal the above 4 accounts plus any additional accounts with the 'Other Operating Expenses' Budget Code set.
A single Account can only have one Budget Code set against it but a single Budget Code is usually associated against multiple Accounts, in line with the P&L Statement.
