Accounts Payable

The powerful features of eFinancials Accounts Payable allow constant monitoring and reporting of payables/outstandings and complete cash control. The Accounts Payable system caters to any payment type. It is fully integrated with eFinancials General Ledger, consequently all entries made to eFinancials Accounts Payable are simultaneously reflected in the General Ledger. In addition, the eFinancials Accounts Payable allows for the creation of any number of separate Accounts Payable ledgers.

eFinancials Accounts Payable includes an Invoice Register to track invoices. Accounts Payable automatically generates proposed payments by examining due dates with discounts automatically taken and disputed items automatically excluded. A proposed payments list can then be modified to fit within cash flow constraints for complete cash control. Manual payments of any type are catered for, as is the preparation and printing of remittance advice, checks, and electronic payments preparation.

Accounts Receivable

The powerful features of eFinancials Accounts Receivable allow constant monitoring and reporting of all receivables. The ability to set up as many receivables sub-ledgers as necessary provides the framework for the existence of multiple ledgers reflecting either different companies, receivables (e.g. expense, credit card), divisions or customer types within an organization. To maintain total flexibility, each separate ledger can operate with its own period definitions and differ from the General Ledger current accounting period.

eFinancials Accounts Receivable has been designed to give the user total flexibility in dealing with cash receipts or any other payment receipt type. Standard Accounts Receivable reports include Customer Statements, Ageing Reports, Cash Flow, Credit management and Budget Performance.

Credit management is a powerful eFinancials Accounts Receivable feature. Credit managers are provided with special inquiries, which enable them to monitor customer outstanding balances rapidly.

Corporate Reporting

eFinancials Corporate Reporting provides a corporate consolidation facility for the General Ledger that is particularly suited to multi-company, and international corporations. It extracts actual or budget amounts from local General Ledgers and generates actual or budget journal entries that can be posted into a head office General Ledger for consolidation purposes.

Users can identify the cost centre/account/activity/job combinations that will be extracted by the Corporate Reporting module for consolidation purposes. The Corporate Reporting module generates journal entries for the extracted values that can be posted to another consolidation General Ledger (which can be at a remote site and maintained in a different currency). Values can be extracted from codes at any level within any of the element structures. This allows you to extract summarized information for consolidation. However, these codes must be defined as postable and bottom level in the consolidating General Ledger. Actual or budget values can be extracted for consolidation.

Fixed Assets Management

The system is fully integrated within a single Oracle database environment. The integration of eFinancials Fixed Assets with eFinancials General Ledger is achieved by utilising the optional Job/Project code of the Chart of Accounts for the identification of asset records. Thus, the system provides a unique asset number for each asset, which may contain up to eight alpha numeric characters and enables the entry of asset details either manually within eFinancials Fixed Assets itself, or, electronically through the Accounts Payable and Receivable modules automatically and immediately. The system eliminates the need to enter the same transaction more than once or even provide for an interface between the ledgers.

It is important to note that eFinancials Fixed Asset is much more than a simple asset register with depreciation. Capital expenditure projects, which create one or many assets can be monitored and controlled. The system also holds a wealth of detail about assets other than financial information. Insurance cover and valuations, investment grants received, usage and maintenance history, and much more can also be held. In addition (by utilizing the PowerPad facility) you can add any amount of additional information and free text to the assets database.


eFinancials Fixed Assets is able to calculate depreciation based upon the following methods:

  • Straight Line
  • Declining Balance
  • Usage Based
  • Manual

General Ledger

General Ledger forms the backbone of the eFinancials suite. Underlying the General Ledger is the chart of accounts structure that organizes financial data into multiple, independent elements representing the organization, financial analysis and other related needs, e.g. Cost-centre, Account, Activity and Job. Each element is set up and exists as an independent element upon which multiple reporting and analysis views can be created at any time, initially or in the future. The multi-entity (e.g. multi-company, multi-fund, etc.) and multi-hierarchical nature of the system allows for one or more distinct organizations to be represented within General Ledger, with optional consolidation as appropriate. Each organization can be viewed in different ways yet with each structure/company sharing the same chart of accounts.

Changes to any of the hierarchies within an element are simple and when changing an element's parent using the graphical drag-and-drop Chart of Accounts tool you redefine the hierarchy and adjust all records historical, current and future instantly. Each element can be composed of multiple independent hierarchies, each of which can be nested to multiple levels of depth.
