PERIOD-END PROCEDURES An Oracle White Paper June, 2009

Oracle Financials E-Business Suite, Release 12 Period End Procedures

i

Introduction
Background
This document has been put together by members of Oracle's internal EMEA Financials Professional Community, acknowledging that every Financials customer needs to successfully close the accounting books each period. Before the first external publication, various people from EMEA Applications Consulting and Financials Product Development have reviewed and enriched the content. If you have any comments or feedback, please read the paragraph ‘Status and Feedback’ below.

Objectives
This document provides guidance on period end procedures in Release 12 for Oracle Payables, Oracle Purchasing, Oracle Inventory, Oracle Order Management, Oracle Receivables, Oracle Assets, Oracle Projects, Oracle Cash Management, Oracle Treasury and Oracle General Ledger. It is intended to be generic, and does not relate to a specific organization. Both mandatory and optional steps are included herein. Procedures particular to year-end processing are also described. This document intends to provide a reference for planning period-end procedures for ‘real-life’ implementations. It describes the fundamental period-end steps involved for each, with particular emphasis on balancing the subledger applications to Oracle General Ledger, and attempts to provide an overview of the relative timing of these procedures for all installed Oracle applications. It is therefore the intention of this document to provide content from which relevant sections can be extracted, according to the applications installed for a particular organization. Any organization may choose to customize their period-end and yearend processes, for example opting to run additional reports, particular to the organization. Although this document particularly refers to ‘Period-End Procedures’, many of the processes can be performed more regularly throughout the accounting period, as required. Each subledger application provides control as to when and how often data is transferred from the subledger application to the General Ledger.

Assumptions
These ‘Period-End Procedures’ were written with the assumption that Oracle Financials was implemented for a single operating unit. Where an organization has implemented the ‘Multi-Org’ features of Oracle Financials, these procedures would need to be performed for each operating unit individually unless Multi-Org Access Control is enabled. Note: R12 requires multi-org functionality to be used. For further details refer to Oracle® Applications Upgrade Guide: Release 11i to Release 12 Oracle Workflow is incorporated in the Release 12 applications. It is assumed that these Workflow Processes will be monitored and attended to by a System Administrator on a regular basis. Some Workflow Processes like the Requisition Approval Workflow or the Purchase Order Approval Workflow will require a direct response from a message recipient rather than a System Administrator.

Organization
This white paper contains twelve chapters and one appendix where you can find interesting links to more information. The first chapter describes the dependencies between the modules and the biggest change between Release 11i and Release 12, which is the introduction of Subledger Accounting (SLA). Then, the next ten chapters outline period-end procedures appropriate to the Oracle Applications covered in this document. The last chapter displays a summary of the main period-end procedures for each application and the relative timing of each.

Attention: If you are using more than one application, the last chapter is a good reference to see that the order of the steps for each application are undertaken in the right sequence, relative to the other applications you are using.

Status and Feedback
This white paper is intended to be a living document. As we gather new or changed information, we will revise and re-publish this paper. Therefore, we welcome all feedback from you. On the bottom of the My Oracle Support note where you have downloaded this document is a link where you can email us your comments.

online or as a background batch process.Chapter 1 SLA and Period End Close dependencies Sub Ledger Accounting (SLA) – Business Process The new Subledger Accounting architecture in Release 12 provides a common repository of all your accounting information. Whenever you want to account for your subledger transactions. and for ease of drilldown. Subledger Accounting stores subledger balances and subledger journals for all of your subledgers that require accounting. Oracle Financials Release 12 Period End Procedures 8 . Sub Ledger Accounting (SLA) – Process Change Due to the impact of the Subledger Accounting Architecture the close process has changed between Release 11i and Release 12. • Just as Oracle General Ledger stores balances and journals. • The moment you need to access more detailed information. the accounting is generated by Subledger Accounting. • It allows your general ledger to be free of extraneous data. for internal and external audit purposes. so that you can maintain a simple chart of accounts and store only what is needed for GL reporting and analysis. Subledger Accounting helps to maintain a common link between General Ledger (GL) balances and underlying transactions automatically. Subledger Accounting provides a comprehensive view of all subledger accounting data. Subledger Accounting offers a new model between the subledgers and GL. It behaves like a detailed version of your general ledger and provides a rich store of information for reporting and analysis. you can go directly to Subledger Accounting to see the detail from all transaction sources that feed the GL account balance without having to go back to multiple source systems and applications.

The new accounting reports in Release 12 now also contain more comprehensive information . Therefore. In Release 11i. In Release 11i. In Release 12 however. In the accounting reports in Release 11i. there is no reason to reconcile distributions on transactions to the general ledger. you’re actually closing subledger accounting. the balances are displayed but not the transactional information.In Release 11i the transactions and distributions represented the accounting. The reason is that subledger accounting enables you to change the accounting for transactions so it is different from the default accounting. You can still reconcile transaction reports to accounting reports. Oracle Financials E-Business Suite Release 12 Period End Procedures 9 . The journals can then be posted to the general ledger to update the GL balances. you reconciled transactions and distributions to the general ledger through transactional reports. In Release 12. This changes in Release 12 as subledger accounting creates the balancing lines at the time you account for the subledger transactions. distributions on transactions in subledgers are considered to be the default accounting and should therefore not be used for reconciliation purposes. customers and transactions. the subledger accounting becomes the single source of truth for accounting reconciliations. Oracle General Ledger will automatically create the balancing lines for journals posted to General Ledger.not just on balances but also on suppliers. when you close your periods in each of the subledgers. The point to note is that when you do account balance reconciliation. The subledger accounting journal represents your REAL accounting and the balancing lines are created as part of these subledger accounting journals. especially if you have altered your subledger accounting rules. Differences between R11i and R12 Subledger Accounting (SLA) – Reconciliation From a reconciliation perspective the picture below shows what has been changed between R11i and R12. When you close a period in Release 12. you should ignore distributions in Release 12.

Create Accounting. is a new step in Release 12. The accounting can be created immediately online. or can be run as a process in the background e. Oracle Financials E-Business Suite Release 12 Period End Procedures 10 . The important thing to note.Reconciliation between R11i and R12 Subledger Accounting (SLA) Close Process – General Steps Here are some guidelines. as a batch job at a time that matches your business needs.g. as it is an SLA feature. from a general perspective. you need to ensure that all your accounting for your transactions is created before you post to General Ledger. Therefore. is that the accounting is not the distribution on the transaction. The final accounting by SLA could result in different accounting entries being generated based on the accounting rules you have configured. how you can perform the close process for every subledger: a) Complete transactions b) Create accounting c) Reconcile transactions d) Post to General Ledger e) Reconcile accounting f) Close period Step b). in order to update the balances correctly.

you have to close Oracle Payables before you close Oracle Purchasing to account for purchasing accruals at period end. For example. Finally. you close all of your subledgers before you close General Ledger. Oracle Financials E-Business Suite Release 12 Period End Procedures 11 . You actually have to close Oracle Cash Management before you close Oracle Receivables. The diagram above shows the dependencies between some of the main Financials products and a couple of supply chain products. You also need to close Oracle Payables before you close Oracle Inventory and Oracle Assets.General – Period End Close Dependencies Before you start with the Period-End process you have to know what the dependencies are between the various modules as described in this document. as bank reconciliation in Cash Management will create miscellaneous receipts in Oracle Receivables and so forth.

since many programs. * Close lines and close orders are implemented using workflow. Procedures The following steps are taken in performing period-end processing for Oracle Order Management. so reporting can be limited only to the active orders. 1. Complete All Transactions for the Period Being Closed Ensure that all transactions have been entered for the period being closed Enter and book all orders Schedule orders Enter and book return material authorizations Run the Generate Pre-billing Acceptance Program for Pre-billing. Closed orders are excluded from many of the standard reports available in Order Management. the creation of install base entries for shipments Confirm OM-shipping transaction for the period Sales order acknowledgments Cancel backordered included items Respond to workflow approval notifications Confirm that invoice interface (OM-> AR interface) has been completed Optionally. when included in the order header or Oracle Financials E-Business Suite Release 12 Period End Procedures 12 . confirm that service contracts for warranties and extended warranties have been created Close orders * Closing orders that are complete enhances performance.

Order lines can close independent of each other. they will not be closed by workflow activity. perform the above tasks for each operating unit. It closes the order header if it finds that all the lines are closed. Once an order line is closed. * If you are using external order processing systems for data entry of orders. Attention: Be sure to include the standard sub-processes of close line and close order at the end of all your line and order flows to ensure that your orders and returns close once all prerequisites have been met. Attention: If MOAC is enabled for the Order Management responsibility.If orders or lines have activity specific holds present. Oracle Financials E-Business Suite Release 12 Period End Procedures 13 . if you are using the Order Management public API to create orders. use the Order Import to update Oracle Order Management from your external systems. * Use the Order Import Correction window to examine the orders and optionally correct data if it fails the import process. b) Run the Create Internal Sales Orders Process in Oracle Purchasing for all requisitions within the current period. * The order header close order process checks at the end of every month to see if all the lines associated with it are closed. If you are using Oracle Purchasing to process Internal Purchase Requisitions. Ensure all Interfaces are Completed for the Period (Optional) Ensure that all interfaces for the current period have been processed: Order Import from External Order Systems. Use the Error Message window to determine if your data failed to import. close the status of the eligible order or lines. the following processes need to be completed: a) Enter and approve all internal purchase requisitions in Oracle Purchasing. no changes can be made to any fields except the descriptive flexfield. Close Order Lines * An order line is eligible to close when it completes all of the line-level activities within the workflow process. Alternatively. Order Import from Oracle Purchasing for Internal Orders.

Internal orders do not go through the Invoice interface/ AutoInvoice process. ship to information. and internal requisition and internal sales order hold discrepancies. order date ranges. This process will ensure all shipped sales order information is transferred to Oracle Receivables when it reaches the appropriate point in the order workflow. From the status page. c) Run Order Import to create internal sales orders from internal requisitions. for external orders. The window shows in tabular format all the activities an order header or line has completed and the corresponding results. Then. order types. e) Use the Order Import Correction window to examine the orders and optionally correct data if it fails the import process.

Chapter 6 Oracle Receivables
This chapter describes the procedures for performing period-end processing in Oracle Receivables Release 12.

Business Requirements
Oracle Receivables requires periodic internal reconciliation of the transactions entered into the Accounts Receivables system. Oracle Receivables provides a comprehensive set of reports to facilitate the reconciliation of outstanding customer balances, transactions, receipts, and account balances. The application provides the functionality to enable reconciliation of your subledger, before posting to the General Ledger. Posting to the General Ledger allows the extraction of details from Oracle Receivables, and the creation of journal entries in the General Ledger. After posting to the General Ledger, it is possible to reconcile Oracle Receivables with the General Ledger by verifying that all the correct journal entries were made.

Procedures
The following steps are taken in performing period-end processing for Oracle Receivables. 1. Complete All Transactions for the Period Being Closed Ensure that all transactions have been entered for the period being closed. Completing all transactions for Oracle Receivables: * Complete Invoicing, Credits and Adjustments * Complete Receipts and Reversals * Complete Invoice and Customer Import * Complete Lock Box Processing * Run the revenue recognition program (Optional; required if OM-shipping is used) If you import transactions from an external system or Oracle Projects, ensure that you have imported all transactions and master files, and reviewed all audit trails for completeness. 2. Reconcile Transaction Activity for the Period Reconcile the transaction activity in Oracle Receivables, before posting to the General Ledger using SLA. This reconciliation process checks that Oracle Receivables transactions are balanced, ensuring that all items eligible for posting are reflected on the Sales Journal. Run the following reports for the same accounting period date range: a. Transaction Register

Run the AR to GL Reconciliation report: * After the Create Accounting program in Receivables has completed. This report simplifies the reconciliation process by comparing Receivables and General Ledger account balances in a single place.The AR to GL Reconciliation report compares the account balances in Oracle Receivables to those in Oracle General Ledger. known as the Roll Forward Formula: Period-End Balance = Outstanding Balance at Start of Period + Transactions + Adjustments – Invoice Exceptions – Applied Receipts – Unapplied Receipts The following list represents the various components that affect a customer’s balance and the reports. thus creating reconciliation issues in Oracle General Ledger. then the following columns highlight the type of journals that affect the account balances: * GL Source Manual . the journals could still post to incorrect GL accounts. * Unposted in GL . Reconcile Outstanding Customer Balances Reconcile the outstanding customer balances at the beginning of a specified period with the ending balance for the same period. The Potential Reconciling Items report addresses this issue by suggesting journal items that might potentially post to GL accounts with unexpected account types. and * You have reviewed the Unposted Items report to confirm that all journal entries have posted. using the following formula. During the internal reconciliation process. and * You have used the posting execution reports to confirm that the journal entries exported from Receivables match those posted in General Ledger. * GL Subledgers Not AR . and highlights journal sources where discrepancies might exist.Journal entries posted to the General Ledger from other subledgers. use the AR Reconciliation report to confirm that your transactional and accounting data match. The Difference column indicates how the activity in Receivables compares to the journal source of Receivables in the General Ledger.Unposted Oracle Receivables journals in the general ledger. 3. This report will show a difference between Receivables and GL account balances only if items did not successfully post to GL accounts. such as Oracle Payables or a legacy feeder system.

The accounting is done at the ledger level and the program has the ability to transfer and import into the General Ledger based on the parameters specified. it is possible to perform external reconciliation during and after the posting process. Bug 7423482: Receipt Register and Receipt Journal do not show on-account activity – deemed functionality. The posting process for Oracle Receivables involves a single step: Create Accounting This process can be submitted from the transactions screen to account for a specific receivables transaction or from the SRS screen to account for all receivables transactions. After internally reconciling the transactions and receipts using these two reports. for transfer to the General Ledger. Oracle Receivables regards these items as having been ‘posted’ within the sub-ledger.

Reconcile Posted Journal Entries After running the GL posting process in Oracle General Ledger. Third Party Balances Report Run Third Party Balances Report from the SRS screen. The output will consist of all items not posted to the General Ledger for the specified GL date range. This report should not generate any output if all Receivables transactions have been successfully posted to the General Ledger. It is automatically submitted by General Ledger when closing a GL period if there are unprocessed accounting events or un-transferred journal entries. Using the Submit Requests window to generate this report. Review the Unposted Items Report Oracle Receivables prints the Unposted Items Report for all items that are not posted for the specified GL date range. then re-open both appropriate Receivables and General Ledger Periods and initiate another posting.

Run Reports for Tax Reporting Purposes (Optional) A variety of standard reports can be used to provide tax information. including withholding tax. Open the Next Oracle Receivables Period Open the next period in Oracle Receivables using the Open/Close Accounting Periods window. 18. 17.Review this report and compare it with the Third Party balances report. General Ledger journal entries imported from Subledger Accounting are not included in the report. Output from the tax extract is designed to look as close to a simple tax report as possible. which is required to be reported to the relevant Tax Authority. The E-Business Tax data extract draws tax information from each application and stores the data in an interface table. Note: To avoid duplication with subledger journal entries. The following tax registers are available: a) Deferred Output Tax Register b) Recoverable and Non-Recoverable Tax Registers c) Single Cross Product Tax Register d) Standard Input and Output Tax Registers The following summary levels are available within each Tax Register: * Transaction Header * Transaction Line * Accounting Line Oracle Financials E-Business Suite Release 12 Period End Procedures 47 .

If the profile option is set to ‘N’. then the accrual entries need to be reversed manually. If encumbrance or budgetary control is being used. Journal entries are created for the amount of the receipt liabilities. Run the Receipt Accruals . Oracle Purchasing creates accrual entries only up to the quantity the supplier did not invoice for the partially invoiced receipts. which in turn will trigger the journal import. If encumbrance or budgetary control is being used. Attention: The Receipt Accruals Period End Program creates accounting in the receiving sub ledger only.8. Oracle Purchasing creates an un-posted journal entry batch in the General Ledger for the receipt accruals. Identify the purchasing period for the receipt accrual entries: Oracle Purchasing creates receipt accruals for all receipts entered up to the end of the nominated period. When the Accrue Expense Items flag is set to At Receipt. Oracle Purchasing reverses the encumbrance entry when creating the corresponding accrual entry. This process can be run as many times as needed. for Expense distributions for a specific purchasing period. Each time the process is run. 9.Perpetual Accruals Identify the period-end balances of the following accounts in the General Ledger: * Purchase Price Variance * Invoice Price Variance Account Oracle Financials E-Business Suite Release 12 Period End Procedures 50 .

The Accrual Reconciliation Reports are used to analyze un-invoiced receipts. or accounts payable transactions: * Quantity differences between receipts and invoices * Incorrect purchase order or invoice unit prices * Discrepancies in supplier billing * Invoice matched to the wrong purchase order distribution * Receipts against the wrong purchase order or order line * Miscellaneous inventory or work in process transactions that do not belong to the accrual accounts * Payables entries for tax and freight that do not belong to the accrual accounts The Accrual Reconciliation Report Group consists of one program and three reports as discussed below: a) Accrual Reconciliation LR Program load run This program is used in the accrual reconciliation process to populate the accrual reconciliation table with all the necessary transaction data to perform the reconciliation process. work in process. Identify the Invoice Price Variances amount and Accrued Receipts amount in the AP Accrual Account. Manually remove the Invoice Price Variance amount from the AP Accrual Account using your General Ledger. All the affected PO distributions (in the case of AP/PO transactions and individual transactions in the case of miscellaneous transactions) Oracle Financials E-Business Suite Release 12 Period End Procedures 51 . and identify errors. purchasing. distinguish accrued receipts from invoice price variances. These reports enable you to identify the following issues in receiving. At any given time.* AP Accrual Account * Inventory Account .(Refer to Chapter 8 Period-End Procedures for Oracle Inventory) Reconcile the balance of the Purchase Price Variance account using the Purchase Price Variance Report. and to reconcile the balance of the AP accrual accounts. inventory. the following transactions can account for the balance in the AP accrual account: * Uninvoiced Receipts * Over-invoiced Receipts * Errors (Invoices or inventory transactions charged to this Account by mistake) You need to analyze the balance of the AP accrual accounts. Run the Invoice Price Variance Report for the current period. Identify the invoice price variance for all purchase orders charged to the Inventory AP Accrual Account and compare it with the balance of the Invoice Price Variance account in the General Ledger.

The Reconciliation Reports can help in monitoring potential problems with purchasing and receiving activities that can affect the accuracy of the AP accrual accounts. Prerequisites: * Oracle Payables and Oracle Purchasing installed. this report enables reconciliation with the accounts payable accrual account. * If expense purchases are accrued at period end. the Accrual Write-Offs window can be used to indicate which entries are to be removed and written off from this report. * If you have installed Oracle Inventory or Work in Process.will be deleted first and the transaction information for these distributions will be fetched and loaded into the accrual reconciliation tables. and price differences. The Reconciliation reports also provide information on the quantity differences (between the quantity received for a purchase order shipment and the quantity invoiced). Accounting entries have to be created in SLA and GL for these write-off transactions by submitting the Create Accounting program. When Oracle Payables creates the accounting for the matched and approved invoice. After researching the reported accrual balances. records the liability from the supplier site and helps you monitor potential problems with purchasing and receiving activities that can affect the accuracy of your AP Accrual Accounts. these differences are resolved. d) Summary Accrual Reconciliation Report The Summary Accrual Reconciliation Report can be used to analyze the balance of the AP accrual accounts. no information will be available to report. Oracle Payables clears the AP accrual accounts. b) AP and PO Accrual Reconciliation Report The AP and PO Accrual Reconciliation Report provides a transactional breakdown of each accrual account with a net balance not equal to zero. You can accrue both expense and inventory purchases as you receive them. and hence manual adjustment of accrual entries is not required. c) Miscellaneous Accrual Reconciliation Report The Miscellaneous Accrual Reconciliation Report shows all inventory and AP (not matched to PO) transactions that have hit the accrual account. Ensure that prior to closing the period. and inventory receipts are not performed. the Accrual Reconciliation Report also displays any inventory or work in process transactions for the accrual accounts. * If expense purchases are accrued on receipt. When this happens. you temporarily record an accounts payable liability to your expense or inventory AP accrual accounts. Oracle Financials E-Business Suite Release 12 Period End Procedures 52 .

more entries must be reconciled in the AP accrual accounts.
