Sub-Ledger Accounting (SLA) is functionality introduced by Oracle in R12 of the Oracle eBusiness Suite. In the 3 years since then, we as a user community have been able to accumulate considerable understanding of SLA This paper attempts to draw together some of that knowledge, highlighting what we have learnt from the early implementations as well as indicating the availability of valuable 1 papers and presentations available for in-depth follow up. Formally, this paper covers the following: • • • • What is SLA? (i.e. an introduction to its functionality and concepts) How does it work? (i.e. system architecture, both process and configuration aspects) What can we do with it? (i.e. how it can be used to meet business requirements) What does it mean for the end-users? (i.e. reports, inquiries, month-end process and diagnostics)

What is Sub-Ledger Accounting?
In R12 the Set of Books concept was replaced with Ledgers; i.e. the 3 “C’s” became the 4 “C’s”: Set of Books Chart of Accounts Functional Currency Calendar Ledger Chart of Accounts Functional Currency Calendar Accounting Convention The Accounting Convention aspect of a Ledger is enabled by Oracle’s introduction of sub-ledger accounting, which facilitated multiple accounting representations of a single transaction. (This very fundamental point is absolutely key to understanding SLA: the transaction entered has now been separated from the accounting entry created from it. This paper will underscore the implications of that change.) So for example it became possible to have the following: Primary Ledger – using standard accrual as an accounting convention Secondary Ledger - using a cash accounting convention In this scenario when the user enters a supplier invoice into Accounts Payable, the following accounting impacts follow: Primary Ledger: Dr Expense (determined by Invoice Distribution) Cr AP Control Secondary Ledger: no accounting impact To provide this new functionality, Oracle introduced sub-ledger accounting, which is: • • Both a set of accounting rules and an engine to generate the accounting transactions A separate product with its own schema (XLA) to which accounting transactions are posted 2 from each participating sub-ledger prior to being posted to the General Ledger . (Although SLA is a separate product, it may be helpful to think of it as a service rather than a 3 separate Application, since it is accessed via the existing sub-ledgers). Participating sub-ledgers include: Payables Receivables Projects

How it Works (Accounting Process) The following diagram shows how the participating sub-ledgers post ‘through’ SLA to the General 4 Ledger . probably the only impact will be a change in some inquiry screens. For example for a Payables or Assets clerk. standardises the accounting process. may present a trap. which is submitted from SRS. however the diagram also indicates that the SLA forms a central transactional data repository with its own reports and inquiry windows. The SLA engine also supports user defined (modified) accounting conventions which allow users to determine how the sub-ledgers derive the accounting. This actually has quite significant impacts at Month-End (which we will come to later in this paper). The very subtlety of these changes. and this will be discussed further in a later section. COLLABORATE 10 — OAUG Forum SLA Deep Dive © Jeannie Dobney & Alyssa Johnson as at 7-Apr-10 Page 2 . The screens used for this are called the Accounting Methods Builder (AMB). Configurations created via the AMB are much easier and transparent than equivalent modifications in previous eBS versions and are more easily supported. however.Assets Cash Management Purchasing Cost Management Process Manufacturing • • Using a single engine to derive accounting from all these sub-ledgers. PA CE PO AR AP SLA CM FA GL The process which controls the interfacing of transactions from the sub-ledgers to the SLA tables and into GL is Creating Accounting. For many end-users the introduction of SLA may be almost transparent.
Journal Descriptions Journal Line Types Account Derivation Rules Sources are components of transactions e.g. the supplier who submitted the invoice.For readers new to this process there are some additional notes about the parameters of this process 5 in the end-notes to this paper Alyssa Johnson has also covered this process in detail in her paper Transitioning from Account Generators to the R12 Subledger Accounting Engine (slide 54 ff). How it Works (Configuration) The following diagram shows the elements used in the SLA architecture: Accounting Method e. one for each sub-ledger Event Classes Each Application has a number of Events which can generate Accounting entries. Standard Accrual Application Application Accounting Application Accounting Definition Accounting Definition Definition An Accounting Method is made up of multiple Application Accounting Definitions. Journal Header Assignments Journal Line Definitions Each event that generates a journal is made up of components that can be defined using rules or by entering data into the available forms. Custom sources can also be defined using PL/SQL Sources COLLABORATE 10 — OAUG Forum SLA Deep Dive © Jeannie Dobney & Alyssa Johnson as at 7-Apr-10 Page 3 . For example Payables has event classes like invoices and payments.g.

For consultants looking for more detail on some of the configuration ‘bells and whistles’ we also recommend Melanie Cameron’s SLA white-paper for the Oracle Contractor’s network (cf key references). To access this screen. Top Tip Through this paper we will include tips which reflect specific queries we’ve fielded over the past 3 years..

Here’s the first one: How do you control whether the sub-ledgers post to GL in summary or detail. The GL SIG’s Introduction to SLA series also contains excellent examples which are 6 helpful in understanding both what each of these building blocks are and also how they can be used. What It Does. The Accounting SetUp Manager controls the grouping of journal headers as shown below (the level of posting detail field).

In most cases SLA picks up this account code as the default source for its account derivation rules.g. For consultants interested in understanding event identifiers. we recommend Melanie Cameron’s paper pp. Sidebar: Transitioning from Account Generators Alyssa has previously presented a paper on this topic (Transitioning from Account Generators to the R12 Subledger Accounting Engine at Collaborate 09) and whilst we do not want to rehash the same material here. In cases where you have a choice between methods (for example in Assets where the profile option FA: Use Workflow Account Generation allows you to opt to bypass the use of the Account Generator). there are a couple of key points worth highlighting here as well: • Most of the sub-ledgers continue to use their existing (11i) methods to derive the accounting which users see in Distribution windows. some understanding of how to use ‘events’ may be helpful for this. Concept Event entity Explanation Event Entities allow SLA to handle the accounting for similar business events in a consistent manner. we recommend you seriously consider going directly to the ‘newer’ technology i.Receivables still uses AutoAccounting to default invoice accounting . event types include Expense Report Cost Distribution and Supplier Cost Distribution.e.g. (note that these event concepts are hierarchical. SLA.The following table explains the related terminology . 8 Event class Event Type Top Tip Later in this paper we will recommend that at least some of your end-users need training in how to use SLA Inquiry screens. For example: . event entities have event classes). Include this data in your end-user training notes. Event Types are the most granular level of business event which has an accounting impact Example from Oracle Projects Expenditures.Assets may use an Account Generator to derive its account codes. from Payables: N > Setup ~ Accounting Setups ~ Subledger Accounting Setup ~ Accounting Methods Builder ~ Events) Use the Event Classes button to display the event classes and types for each Event Entity. • • COLLABORATE 10 — OAUG Forum SLA Deep Dive © Jeannie Dobney & Alyssa Johnson as at 7-Apr-10 Page 6 . (rather than investing further in a workflow based method whilst knowing 9 that workflow technology will not used in the next generation Fusion Applications). An Event Type represents a business operation that you can perform for an Event Class. however SLA also allows you to modify this if you wish to. (This is very significant fundamental point and we will come back to it later in this paper). query back the Event Model screen (e. To identify the events in your Application you can do the following: In a non-production instance.Projects still uses AutoAccounting to default revenue accounting and an Account Generator to default P2P expenditure accounting .

My Oracle Support) Note 458375.rather than as manual invoices in AR (and they post from AR in detail). is that it provides User-Configurable 10 Accounting Rules . However we recommend that if your site uses a non-standard / user-configured sub-ledger accounting method (SLAM).mirroring the balancing segment value in the expense account. There are a series of other excellent examples in the GL SIG’s SLA presentations.g. There is an example of Purchase Price Variance by product line described by Streubel and 12 Volz in their paper Cost Accounting As You Want It EBS R12 Cost Accounting with SLA . we would also recommend it be specifically and intensively tested during UAT to ensure that the configuration meets the business requirements. however the company wants to have a separate accrual account. you can meet that requirement with Application level configuration using the SLA architecture described in the previous section.k.) A Receivables team wants to differentiate their Receivables balance for products vs services.so our recommendation is that a brief functional specification be created listing briefly what the business requirement was that justified the custom SLAM and how the SLA elements are used to achieve the required outcome. Top Tip The details of SLA configuration may be primarily of interest to implementers. where the liability account is cost centre specific and the cost centre value should match the item distribution.e. e. An Assets client requires that disposals be charged to a specific cost centre instead of to the balance sheet i. In 11i this would require a Workflow developer to customise the Account Generator. 000. . Metalink (a. SLA supports this using the same principle used for automatic offsets. it provides a useful template for similar requirements e.Using SLA to Meet Specific Business Requirements One of the key business benefits Oracle claim for SLA. In 11i this would have required a significant customisation. Whilst this is standard functionality. Some other functionality provided by SLA may also be helpful and is indicated briefly here: COLLABORATE 10 — OAUG Forum SLA Deep Dive © Jeannie Dobney & Alyssa Johnson as at 7-Apr-10 Page 7 . however in R12 this is a supported SLA configuration. again this can be easily achieved using conditional logic via SLA.g.1 also includes case study of similar requirements. Put simply. (How to do this is illustrated in Alyssa Johnson’s paper Transitioning from Account Generators. The GL SIG’s excellent series on SLA included a discussion of how Automatic Offsets are 11 implemented in R12 . users should check that this is documented to their satisfaction as part of the implementation. Their default accrual account configuration uses company 01. this means that if your site has an accounting requirement that ‘vanilla’ Oracle has not foreseen. we have not dwelt on them here because we assume that key end-users are likely to require only a conceptual understanding of how it works. Alyssa Johnson discusses this in her paper Transitioning from Account Generators: slide 60 ff.a. Existing AIM documentation may not be easily adapted for SLAMs. a client has multiple balancing segments within an operating unit. these include rules that include conditions and other more sophisticated examples than are listed 13 above. in R12 it is a simple and supported configuration of journal line descriptions. Extending this recommendation to treat a user-configured SLAM as a customisation. Note: Oracle provide a mechanism for importing and exporting Application Accounting Definitions – to make the process of migrating a user-configured SLAM from a TEST instance to Production. This is indeed a major benefit which will have a direct impact on total cost of ownership. Here are some examples of using the SLA Architecture to meet specific business requirements: • GL users would like to be able to distinguish AR invoice journal lines which originated from feeder systems .
you might want to report some costs by project using this functionality. We have identified the following key impacts: • • • • New and / or changed reports New and / or changed accounting inquiry windows Changed month-end procedures Changed Diagnostics procedures The following section outlines each of these in turn. however in our experience an ‘apparently small’ change like the replacement of the Account Analysis with Payables details 11i report with the R12 Account Analysis (with sub-ledger details) report – can cause absolute havoc during the first month end after go-live! This is not something you want to replicate… Inquiries In the GL-SIG’s excellent presentation series. For example if you do not use Oracle Projects. solely for management reporting).

The recommendation is to remove this sub-function from all users who do not actually need it and 18 to set clear guidelines for the acceptable use of SLA journals for those who may use it . page 12-42 Reverse_Journal_Entry. in our experience to date this is not always the users’ perception.1). As noted above we strongly recommend you include a complete period close in your UAT and not underestimate the impact of these changes. make sure users understand how to use this functionality in their queries. Ensure users understand how to use the Add Another field to focus a query – and then to save personalisations. for example: • There is now an Inquiry page titled Accounting Events. however. however in our experience users still need some assistance to be able to use the Inquiry pages. Possibly the best advice is to proceed with caution as SLA has been a substantial change and some teething issues are to be expected with this scale of change.
