2018 Chart of Accounts
The Finance team is extremely excited to say that we are officially live with NetSuite! NetSuite is our new financial system. With a new financial system, comes a new and improved chart of accounts. Please see the new 2018 chart of accounts attached, which will be posted to HO Collaboration on SharePoint. Due to the revised chart of accounts, the following modifications to AvidExchange have been made.
We no longer have the concept of one account string (i.e. 28-00-30-540001) representing the Company, Product Type, Department and GL Account codes
Each code is now a standalone field per the screen shot below
Department and Product Codes are now descriptions and no longer numeric
Job cost codes are now Project and Task codes. The Project and Task codes will be created next week for all 2018 approved CapEx and Unit Renovation projects.
If you have any questions regarding these changes, please feel free to contact your AP Specialist, Mareia Johnson (AP Manager) or myself.
