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.

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. so that you can maintain a simple chart of accounts and store only what is needed for GL reporting and analysis. 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. • It allows your general ledger to be free of extraneous data. 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. online or as a background batch process. 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. the accounting is generated by Subledger Accounting. Subledger Accounting offers a new model between the subledgers and GL. • Just as Oracle General Ledger stores balances and journals. • The moment you need to access more detailed information. Subledger Accounting stores subledger balances and subledger journals for all of your subledgers that require accounting. for internal and external audit purposes. and for ease of drilldown. It behaves like a detailed version of your general ledger and provides a rich store of information for reporting and analysis.

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

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

you close all of your subledgers before you close General Ledger. you have to close Oracle Payables before you close Oracle Purchasing to account for purchasing accruals at period end. 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. You actually have to close Oracle Cash Management before you close Oracle Receivables. Oracle Financials E-Business Suite Release 12 Period End Procedures 11 . For example. Finally. as bank reconciliation in Cash Management will create miscellaneous receipts in Oracle Receivables and so forth. The diagram above shows the dependencies between some of the main Financials products and a couple of supply chain products.

Business Requirements Open Sales Orders should be reviewed and. Procedures The following steps are taken in performing period-end processing for Oracle Order Management. * Close lines and close orders are implemented using workflow. These processes. 1. when included in the order header or Oracle Financials E-Business Suite Release 12 Period End Procedures 12 .Chapter 2 Oracle Order Management This chapter describes the procedures for performing period-end processing in Oracle Order Management Release 12. respectively. 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. confirm that service contracts for warranties and extended warranties have been created Close orders * Closing orders that are complete enhances performance. 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. where possible. windows and report queries retrieve open orders only. Orders marked as closed are not selected. so reporting can be limited only to the active orders. Order Management provides seeded close line and close order workflow sub-processes to close the order header and line. Implicit Acceptance Confirm shipments and optionally. increasing system speed and efficiency. appropriate actions should be undertaken to finalize the Order Workflows and close these Sales Orders. Closed orders are excluded from many of the standard reports available in Order Management. since many programs.

if you are using the Order Management public API to create orders. for which you can define processing constraints. Oracle Financials E-Business Suite Release 12 Period End Procedures 13 .line workflow. perform the above tasks for each operating unit. they will not be closed by workflow activity. ensure that the processes calling the public API have completed. 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. If you are using Oracle Purchasing to process Internal Purchase Requisitions. * The order header close order process checks at the end of every month to see if all the lines associated with it are closed. Use the Error Message window to determine if your data failed to import. Holds Effect on Eligible Lines * The close order and close line workflow activities will close order or lines if only generic holds are present . the following processes need to be completed: a) Enter and approve all internal purchase requisitions in Oracle Purchasing. Attention: If MOAC is enabled for the Order Management responsibility. no lines can be added or changed. 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. Alternatively. Order lines can close independent of each other. * If you are using external order processing systems for data entry of orders. Close Order Lines * An order line is eligible to close when it completes all of the line-level activities within the workflow process. b) Run the Create Internal Sales Orders Process in Oracle Purchasing for all requisitions within the current period. It closes the order header if it finds that all the lines are closed. 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. no changes can be made to any fields except the descriptive flexfield. Order Import from Oracle Purchasing for Internal Orders.If orders or lines have activity specific holds present. Once an order is closed. close the status of the eligible order or lines. Once an order line is closed. 2.

All of the operating units that share a ledger also share the same period statuses. Procedures 1. When you update the period status to ‘open’ in one operating unit. and reviewed all audit trails for completeness. The posting level for Oracle Payables must be determined when planning period-end procedures. Where detail level accounting transactions are required to be posted to the General Ledger using sub-ledger accounting (hereafter referred to as SLA). the system checks for unposted transactions in all operating units within the ledger. One consideration for Accounts Payable where there are multiple operating units within the same ledger is that all operating units must be ready to close at the same time. Then. The following steps are taken in performing period-end processing for Oracle Payables. If there are unposted transactions in any of the operating units. and posting and report processing speed degradation caused by the sheer volume of posted transactions. relating to the physical data storage volume. that period is opened for all operating units within the ledger.

Usually used where modules are maintained in different periods. However. Period Statuses Oracle Projects has statuses similar to the standard period statuses as in other modules: *Never Opened . and other modules. If the two sets of periods overlap.This status prevents transaction entry.Period has never been used. Project periods may be based on a different period of time such as a week. you may want to consider using one of the alternate general ledger period conventions. * Pending Close . Oracle Financials E-Business Suite Release 12 Period End Procedures 32 .No further processing is possible. * Open . * Permanently Closed .Period is available for data entry. transactions are summarized into periodic cycles for reporting and reconciliation. This will enable you to more easily align Projects with General Ledger for reconciliation purposes. Suggestion: If you have different periods in Projects. Project Periods and General Ledger Periods In Oracle subledgers. and transactions are likely to be posted across modules. Most subledgers have a periodic cycle that parallels the general ledger fiscal cycle. then you may need to put in place special procedures for the reconciliation of Projects to the general ledger. such as a 5-4-4 period split. * Future Enterable . projects may be based on a different periodic cycle to that of the general ledger.

This process needs to be performed for each operating unit defined. You can generate the Subledger Period Close Exceptions Report through a concurrent request for the application associated with the responsibility or for all applications in the General Ledger responsibility. Complete all Maintenance Activities As there are a number of maintenance activities that can affect the period close procedure. you should ensure that all the following maintenance activities have been completed: Project Maintenance (revenue/billing based options) * Billing burden schedules and burden schedule overrides * Bill rate schedules and bill rate overrides * Project labor multiplier changes * Revenue budget changes * Project/Task % complete * Funding changes * Changes in the task Ready to Accrue checkbox Implementation Maintenance Oracle Financials E-Business Suite Release 12 Period End Procedures 33 .

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

3. using the following formula. use the AR Reconciliation report to confirm that your transactional and accounting data match. Run the AR to GL Reconciliation report: * After the Create Accounting program in Receivables has completed.Manual journal entries made in the General Ledger. and highlights journal sources where discrepancies might exist. This report simplifies the reconciliation process by comparing Receivables and General Ledger account balances in a single place. even if the data matches. * Unposted in GL . If the actual balance of a specific account is different in Receivables than in GL. such as Oracle Payables or a legacy feeder system. This report will show a difference between Receivables and GL account balances only if items did not successfully post to GL accounts.The AR to GL Reconciliation report compares the account balances in Oracle Receivables to those in Oracle General Ledger.Unposted Oracle Receivables journals in the general ledger. then the following columns highlight the type of journals that affect the account balances: * GL Source Manual . which can be run and reviewed to reconcile these components: Component Beginning Balance Transactions Adjustments Exceptions Report Aging reports Transaction Register Adjustment Register Invoice Exceptions Report Oracle Financials E-Business Suite Release 12 Period End Procedures 42 . the journals could still post to incorrect GL accounts. and * You have reviewed the Unposted Items report to confirm that all journal entries have posted. * GL Subledgers Not AR . Reconcile Outstanding Customer Balances Reconcile the outstanding customer balances at the beginning of a specified period with the ending balance for the same period. thus creating reconciliation issues in Oracle General Ledger. and * You have used the posting execution reports to confirm that the journal entries exported from Receivables match those posted in General Ledger. The Difference column indicates how the activity in Receivables compares to the journal source of Receivables in the General Ledger.Journal entries posted to the General Ledger from other subledgers. However. 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. The Potential Reconciling Items report addresses this issue by suggesting journal items that might potentially post to GL accounts with unexpected account types. During the internal reconciliation process.

Review the Unapplied Receipts Register Use the Unapplied Receipts Register to review detailed information about your customers’ on-account and unapplied payments for the date range that you specify. and therefore do not show up in the aging reports. payment number. You can use this report to determine how much your customer owes after taking into account all on-account and unapplied amounts. The Journal Entries Report shows the receipt numbers that contribute to a particular GL account. Oracle Financials E-Business Suite Release 12 Period End Procedures 43 . If any of the Receipts listed can now be applied to outstanding transactions. Receivables displays information about your on-account or unapplied payment such as GL date. which are not open in Receivables.Applied Receipts Applied Receipts Register (Identify payments received from customers) Unapplied and Unresolved Receipts Register (identify payments received from customers) Aging report (as of the last day of the accounting period) Unapplied Receipts Ending Balance Attention: You can use the Invoice Exceptions Report to adjust the Transaction Register for any transactions. This report includes both cash and miscellaneous receipts. you can review the detailed information on the Receipts Journal Report. payment method. payment date. you can perform this action by re-querying the receipts and following the normal application procedure. b) Receipt Register Use this report to review a list of receipts for a specified date range. and unapplied amount. 4.

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. Bug 7589198: Receipt Register does not match Receipt journal – deemed functionality (similar to Bug 7423482). Both reports display invoice related receipts and miscellaneous receipts. See the following My Oracle Support bugs and enhancement requests for more details: Note 393682. the entries will have to be transferred separately. transactions in error etc.Attention: Normally the total of the Receipts Journal report should equal the total of all the receipts in the Receipt Register for the same GL date range. Bug 7423482: Receipt Register and Receipt Journal do not show on-account activity – deemed functionality. Post to the General Ledger Prior to posting to the General Ledger. If Create Accounting is submitted in the ‘Final’ mode without transferring it to the General Ledger. Compare this report to the Journal Entries Report (run in Posted status mode) and verify that they match. Create Accounting will generate a report which details the transferred transactions. for transfer to the General Ledger. 8.1: Unable to Reconcile Receipt Register to Receipt Journal – Enhancement 5567693 is still pending. Reconcile the General Ledger Transfer Process The Create Accounting program produces the Subledger Accounting Program report that shows you the subledger journal entries created for successful accounting events. Oracle Financials E-Business Suite Release 12 Period End Procedures 44 . Once transactions and receipts have been transferred to the GL tables. Reconcile Receipts to Bank Statement Activity for the Period (Refer to Chapter 3 Period-End Procedures for Oracle Cash Management) Attention: The Create Accounting process must be re-run for any miscellaneous accounting entries generated from the bank reconciliation. 6. the Receipts Journal Report and Sales Journal display the transactions that would be posted to the General Ledger (provided the posting process was run for the same GL date range). 7. Use the same General Ledger date ranges for the Journal Entries Report and the Create Accounting program. After internally reconciling the transactions and receipts using these two reports. Oracle Receivables regards these items as having been ‘posted’ within the sub-ledger. it is possible to perform external reconciliation during and after the posting process. 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.

10.Account balances for transactions and receipts can be reconciled by generating the Sales Journal by GL Account Report. Reconcile the Journal Import Process Create Accounting program submits Journal Import automatically when launched in ‘Mode = Final’ and ‘Transfer to GL = Yes’. the following statements apply: If SLA final accounting lines exist. Print Invoices Once you are satisfied that the customer balances are reconciled. Attention: Where there are multiple operating units within the same ledger all operating units must be ready to close at the same time. No or ALL. All of the operating units that share a ledger also share the same period statuses. When running any Oracle Receivables reports that display accounting involving transactions that have been posted to GL. and comparing them with the Journal Entries Report output. then AR distribution accounting is displayed. Attention: The ‘Detail by Account’ version of the Journal Entries Report may be the most useful for reconciliation in this case. they can run Journal Entries Report using Sequence Ranges created in the Create Accounting program run. the Receipts Journal Report (in ‘transaction’ mode) and the Journal Entries Report for posted items. ensure that the consolidated (BFB) invoices have been generated for the current period. The Journal Entries Report is a new Subledger Accounting BI Publisher report which is available from the subledger applications and can be run with parameter Posted = Yes. If the Balance Forward Billing functionality is used. which users can copy and modify the report template according to their needs. Oracle Financials E-Business Suite Release 12 Period End Procedures 45 . The account totals in the Sales and Receipt journals should match the corresponding account balances in the Journal Entries Report. that period is opened for all operating units within the ledger. and compare the total with the Journal Import Execution Report. refer to the Oracle Receivables Implementation Guide or the Oracle Receivables User Guide. Note: Balance Forward Billing replaces consolidated billing invoices (CBI) feature of 11i. Close the Current Oracle Receivables Period Close the current period in Oracle Receivables using the Open/Close Accounting Periods window. Reconcile the Journal Import by manually reviewing the transactions in the Subledger Accounting Program Report. ensure all the invoices generated during the month have been printed and issued. 11. For more information on the setup of balance forward billing. then SLA accounting is displayed. Attention: If the customer is using Reporting/Accounting sequences. 9. When you update the period statuses to ‘Open’ in one operating unit. If SLA accounting lines do not exist.

This report should not generate any output if all Receivables transactions have been successfully posted to the General Ledger. Review the Subledger Period Close Exceptions Report The Subledger Period Close Exceptions Report lists all the accounting events and journal entries that fail period close validation. which were transferred in FINAL mode and with Post in GL being set to NO. 16. It retrieves the following information: * Third party balances for third party control accounts * Subledger journal entry lines that add up to the total period activity for each control account. Run the request from the Submit Requests window. It only includes journal entries transferred to and posted to the General Ledger. 14. for the transactions. The output will consist of all items not posted to the General Ledger for the specified GL date range. then re-open both appropriate Receivables and General Ledger Periods and initiate another posting.

This report is used to display balance and account activity information for Suppliers and Customers. and third party site * Third party and third party site information * User transaction identifiers for the associated event The balances in this report can be compared with the General Ledger balances for the same control accounts to reconcile. submit with a GL date range for at least the current financial year. It is automatically submitted by General Ledger when closing a GL period if there are unprocessed accounting events or un-transferred journal entries. Third Party Balances Report Run Third Party Balances Report from the SRS screen. Review Account Analysis Report The Account Analysis Report provides drill-down information about the activities relating to a particular account for a period or range of periods. You can also generate the Subledger Period Close Exceptions Report through a concurrent request as follows: * For the application associated with the responsibility * For all applications in the General Ledger responsibility 13. 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. run the Journal Entries Report (with ‘Posted = Y’) to help reconcile the posted journals.12. If there are any items not posted for the current or prior periods. Reconcile Posted Journal Entries After running the GL posting process in Oracle General Ledger. 15. third party.

The E-Business Tax data extract draws tax information from each application and stores the data in an interface table. 17. Output from the tax extract is designed to look as close to a simple tax report as possible. Open the Next Oracle Receivables Period Open the next period in Oracle Receivables using the Open/Close Accounting Periods window. 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 . including withholding tax. Run Reports for Tax Reporting Purposes (Optional) A variety of standard reports can be used to provide tax information. 18. General Ledger journal entries imported from Subledger Accounting are not included in the report. which is required to be reported to the relevant Tax Authority.Review this report and compare it with the Third Party balances report. Note: To avoid duplication with subledger journal entries.

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. and to reconcile the balance of the AP accrual accounts. 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. 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 . 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. These reports enable you to identify the following issues in receiving. distinguish accrued receipts from invoice price variances. The Accrual Reconciliation Reports are used to analyze un-invoiced receipts. Run the Invoice Price Variance Report for the current period. Identify the Invoice Price Variances amount and Accrued Receipts amount in the AP Accrual Account. work in process.(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 identify errors.
