      You can use General Ledger to enter a chart of accounts and post beginning balances. You can set up budgets in Microsoft Dynamics GP. If you use a predefined chart of accounts, you can quickly print financial statements or modify them.
      You also can use General Ledger to complete the following tasks:
      • Enter and post standard or correcting transactions
      • Enter unit accounts that capture non-financial data, and fixed or variable allocation accounts that allow you to efficiently distribute amounts among multiple accounts
      • Set posting options that allow you to post transactions from subsidiary ledgers to General Ledger, where can review and them and make correcting entries, if necessary, or post them through General Ledger in a single step
      • Void or delete unposted transactions easily, back out or reverse posted transactions, and post corrected entries—all with a complete, clear audit trail
      • Bring greater efficiency to recurring transactions by defining quick journal transactions that can be posted repeatedly with minimal changes
      • Filter account views based on access granted for accounts, increasing security and eliminating errors caused when entries are made to inappropriate accounts
