Sub-Ledger Accounting: Deep Drive

Presenters: Introduction
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)

Jeannie Dobney (independent consultant) & Alyssa Johnson (solution architect, Solution Beacon)

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

The screens used for this are called the Accounting Methods Builder (AMB).Assets Cash Management Purchasing Cost Management Process Manufacturing • • Using a single engine to derive accounting from all these sub-ledgers. probably the only impact will be a change in some inquiry screens. Configurations created via the AMB are much easier and transparent than equivalent modifications in previous eBS versions and are more easily supported. however. The very subtlety of these changes. The SLA engine also supports user defined (modified) accounting conventions which allow users to determine how the sub-ledgers derive the accounting. COLLABORATE 10 — OAUG Forum SLA Deep Dive © Jeannie Dobney & Alyssa Johnson as at 7-Apr-10 Page 2 . How it Works (Accounting Process) The following diagram shows how the participating sub-ledgers post ‘through’ SLA to the General 4 Ledger . standardises the accounting process. For many end-users the introduction of SLA may be almost transparent. This actually has quite significant impacts at Month-End (which we will come to later in this paper). 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. which is submitted from SRS. and this will be discussed further in a later section. For example for a Payables or Assets clerk. however the diagram also indicates that the SLA forms a central transactional data repository with its own reports and inquiry windows. may present a trap.

Standard Accrual Application Application Accounting Application Accounting Definition Accounting Definition Definition An Accounting Method is made up of multiple Application Accounting Definitions. one for each sub-ledger Event Classes Each Application has a number of Events which can generate Accounting entries.g.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). 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. For example Payables has event classes like invoices and payments. How it Works (Configuration) The following diagram shows the elements used in the SLA architecture: Accounting Method e.g. 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 .

Subledger Accounting: What It Is. Here’s the first one: How do you control whether the sub-ledgers post to GL in summary or detail. and select specific sub-ledger Use the Accounting Methods Builder (introduced in the next section) to control the summarisation 7 of journal lines. COLLABORATE 10 — OAUG Forum SLA Deep Dive © Jeannie Dobney & Alyssa Johnson as at 7-Apr-10 Page 4 . 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).Refer to the PowerPoint presentation accompanying this white paper for screen shots of each of these elements. To access this screen. How It Works.. The Accounting SetUp Manager controls the grouping of journal headers as shown below (the level of posting detail field). In the next section of the current paper we will highlight how these elements can be used as supported configurations to achieve the accounting outcomes which may be required by your business. (Alyssa’s contact details are included at the end of this paper). Top Tip Through this paper we will include tips which reflect specific queries we’ve fielded over the past 3 years. 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. from the GL SuperUser Responsibility: (N) Setup ~ Financials ~ Accounting Setup Manager ~ Accounting SetUps ~ Subledger Accounting Options. For more detail on SLA Architecture refer to Alyssa’s 2008 paper: Oracle EBS Release 12. What It Does.

An event is the recording of a change of status in the transaction life cycle. period close. invoice approved. SLA uses events for processing transactions.e. etc. this section deals in a little more detail with the “event” concept which is an important part of SLA architecture and processing.The 2 options work together as shown in the following table from MOS Note 876190. COLLABORATE 10 — OAUG Forum SLA Deep Dive © Jeannie Dobney & Alyssa Johnson as at 7-Apr-10 Page 5 .. This allows for a clear separation between transactions and accounting representation.

(rather than investing further in a workflow based method whilst knowing 9 that workflow technology will not used in the next generation Fusion Applications). 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. (note that these event concepts are hierarchical.Projects still uses AutoAccounting to default revenue accounting and an Account Generator to default P2P expenditure accounting .Assets may use an Account Generator to derive its account codes.e. Concept Event entity Explanation Event Entities allow SLA to handle the accounting for similar business events in a consistent manner. (This is very significant fundamental point and we will come back to it later in this paper). we recommend Melanie Cameron’s paper pp. For Event Class Supplier Cost. query back the Event Model screen (e. 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. Usage Cost. For consultants interested in understanding event identifiers. i. By default. For example: .g.e. so that users understand how to use the Inquiry screens to focus their query on e. event entities have event classes).Receivables still uses AutoAccounting to default invoice accounting . we recommend you seriously consider going directly to the ‘newer’ technology i. SLA. Event Types are the most granular level of business event which has an accounting impact Example from Oracle Projects Expenditures. 10 ff (see key references section below). however SLA also allows you to modify this if you wish to. 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. In most cases SLA picks up this account code as the default source for its account derivation rules. Revenue and Budgets For Event Entity Expenditures. • • COLLABORATE 10 — OAUG Forum SLA Deep Dive © Jeannie Dobney & Alyssa Johnson as at 7-Apr-10 Page 6 . An Event Class represents a category of business event for a particular transaction type or document. only cancelled invoices.g. event types include Expense Report Cost Distribution and Supplier Cost Distribution. some understanding of how to use ‘events’ may be helpful for this. To identify the events in your Application you can do the following: In a non-production instance.The following table explains the related terminology . Event Classes include Labor Cost. and Supplier Cost. it will simply pass this through to GL. Include this data in your end-user training notes. 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). 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. An Event Type represents a business operation that you can perform for an Event Class.

There are a series of other excellent examples in the GL SIG’s SLA presentations. this means that if your site has an accounting requirement that ‘vanilla’ Oracle has not foreseen.rather than as manual invoices in AR (and they post from AR in detail). In 11i this would require a Workflow developer to customise the Account Generator. users should check that this is documented to their satisfaction as part of the implementation. Put simply. .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. Existing AIM documentation may not be easily adapted for SLAMs. An Assets client requires that disposals be charged to a specific cost centre instead of to the balance sheet i. in R12 it is a simple and supported configuration of journal line descriptions. it provides a useful template for similar requirements e.mirroring the balancing segment value in the expense account. • • • • • • The examples provided above are intended to assist you in understanding the power of SLA to help you meet your business requirements in a supportable way. 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. However we recommend that if your site uses a non-standard / user-configured sub-ledger accounting method (SLAM).) A Receivables team wants to differentiate their Receivables balance for products vs services. 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 . is that it provides User-Configurable 10 Accounting Rules . We recommend that you refer to the papers referenced above for the specifics of how this can be done. 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.Using SLA to Meet Specific Business Requirements One of the key business benefits Oracle claim for SLA.g. In 11i this would have required a significant customisation. SLA supports this using the same principle used for automatic offsets. you can meet that requirement with Application level configuration using the SLA architecture described in the previous section.e.k. This is indeed a major benefit which will have a direct impact on total cost of ownership. e. (How to do this is illustrated in Alyssa Johnson’s paper Transitioning from Account Generators. however in R12 this is a supported SLA configuration. a client has multiple balancing segments within an operating unit. Whilst this is standard functionality. Alyssa Johnson discusses this in her paper Transitioning from Account Generators: slide 60 ff. Extending this recommendation to treat a user-configured SLAM as a customisation.1 also includes case study of similar requirements. 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 .a. My Oracle Support) Note 458375. Top Tip The details of SLA configuration may be primarily of interest to implementers. these include rules that include conditions and other more sophisticated examples than are listed 13 above. Their default accrual account configuration uses company 01. where the liability account is cost centre specific and the cost centre value should match the item distribution. 000. again this can be easily achieved using conditional logic via SLA. 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 .g. The GL SIG’s excellent series on SLA included a discussion of how Automatic Offsets are 11 implemented in R12 . however the company wants to have a separate accrual account. Metalink (a. we would also recommend it be specifically and intensively tested during UAT to ensure that the configuration meets the business requirements.

For example if you do not use Oracle Projects. consider capturing it purely within Subledger Accounting using this SLA Supporting Reference feature. Replacement Accounts 15 If these are used by your site. Top Tip We would strongly recommend that user testing includes the use of reports and inquiries for relevant business activities and especially that a full period close be completed during UAT. .e. Reports SLA provides the following BI Publisher reports to take advantage of the centralised transaction data store and to assist with reconciliation. listing of transactions. • Third Party account balances This functionality allows you to view and report account balances by customer and / or supplier. There is a helpful example in the GL SIG’s SLA slides 14 showing exactly how this can be set up and used for reporting.a. The changes may appear small. • End-User Impacts Many end-users may not notice much change when moving from 11i to R12. sub-ledger journal entries that have not yet been posted to GL All reports are based on ‘fat’ extracts i. Trial Balances): listing of open balances by third party Third Party Balances Report. they covered the new SLA Inquiry pages very thoroughly and practically– and we recommend you consider a similar approach for your end-user COLLABORATE 10 — OAUG Forum SLA Deep Dive © Jeannie Dobney & Alyssa Johnson as at 7-Apr-10 Page 8 . 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. to an AP or AR clerk.• Supporting References This functionality allows you to ‘tag’ transactions with values which may then be used in reporting – and for which SLA will maintain balances. 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. The objective is to ensure that the users can obtain the data they need from the new or changed reports.e. solely for management reporting). There is also a helpful Metalink Note providing detail on how Supporting References may be set up and used (Note 790978. they contain additional non-displayed data which can be 16 added via BI Publisher template modifications. the values are substituted in SLA (not first in GL). If a ‘segment’ is not required for financial accounting and reporting.

Drill Down from GL now also uses SLA pages. Oracle position SLA as facilitating a smoother period close and easier reconciliation (cf Note 986783. page 12-12 Delete_Journal_Entry. page 12-18 Create_Journal_Entry_Line. Early releases of R12 had considerable problems reconciling AP to GL and there are quite a few 20 Metalink notes relating to this . Oracle now provide the ability to enter manual sub-ledger journals via a button on the SLA Journal Inquiry pages. We all know that the SWAN interface is supposed to be so much more intuitive. It is easy to do this once you’ve been shown how . end-users probably need to have this and the related “event” jargon translated for their Application’s context using some familiar examples (refer to the sidebar section on p. Oracle have provided an excellent document on this topic (Note 961285. One helpful example using their business context is normally sufficient.1). make sure users understand how to use this functionality in their queries. Top Tip 17 • • • • Top Tip • COLLABORATE 10 — OAUG Forum SLA Deep Dive © Jeannie Dobney & Alyssa Johnson as at 7-Apr-10 Page 9 .but most end users do need to be shown. page 12-42 Reverse_Journal_Entry. page 12-21 Update_Journal_Entry_Line. page 12-38 Complete_Journal_Entry. so your GL users will also need to understand how to use the SLA 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. Alternatively consider removing this page from their menu or at least explaining that it is not relevant to them. this should probably also be introduced to users in a similar manner. 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 . you may wish to consider the use of the API which allows you to import such transactions into SLA rather than into the GL directly (via the GL interface). however at the time of writing these issues seem to be largely overcome. 5 above). page 12-29 Delete_Journal_Entry_Line. The package is called XLA_JOURNAL_ENTRIES_PUB_PKG. Ensure users understand how to use the Add Another field to focus a query – and then to save personalisations.1 . As noted above we strongly recommend you include a complete period close in your UAT and not underestimate the impact of these changes. If you are considering using the manual SLA journal feature to represent accounting in legacy systems. however. firstly that a data entry facility should be accessible from an inquiry page and secondly that incorrect use of this by-defaultstandard feature could lead to significant reconciliation problems at month-end. This topic has sparked some concern. with the following sub19 functions : Create_Journal_Entry_Header. If your site wants to use Third Party Balance Inquiries. for example: • There is now an Inquiry page titled Accounting Events. We recommend you download and study this document during your upgrade or implementation.R12: Period-End Procedures for Oracle Financials E-Business Suite). in our experience to date this is not always the users’ perception. however in our experience users still need some assistance to be able to use the Inquiry pages. If you have chosen to use Supporting References.

this should only be enabled when required). You should also rehearse your reconciliation strategy during testing of your migration process.R12: FAQ for the SLA Upgrade and we would also strongly recommend talking with other users who have upgraded to R12 to hear what they have learnt. Reset the profile option: SLA Enable Diagnostics to No 5.briefly referred to above with manual reference and also refer to blog at http://www. for legacy systems) . Submit the Transaction Objects Diagnostics concurrent request to view the diagnostic report. Other Topics Before closing this paper we would like to mention one further topic which the scope of this paper has not allowed us to deal with but which you may wish to follow up through the references provided below: Upgrade issues An upgrade to R12 is non-trivial. Submit the Create Accounting program which then also populates the diagnostic tables.e. For example if the user may see an Invoice Distribution displaying an account code of 01-100-7123.
