Introduction to Sub Ledger Accounting
SLA is a powerful accounting engine or program with centralized data model and repository, which generates accounting entries for the transactions entered in the sub ledger modules. SLA is a service and not a separate module or application. SLA forms and programs can be accessed through standard Oracle Apps Responsibilities. SLA allows multiple accounting representations for a single transaction thereby enabling compliance with multiple geographic, regulatory or business requirements. SLA also facilitates multi period accounting.
