Posting to GL in Detail
SummaryReason for or against bringing transaction level detail into the General Ledger
Our current global design states that accounting data from subledgers and external systems are summarized when interfaced to the General Ledger. A number of our current countries are requesting to interface transaction level detail from third party systems into the General Ledger for traceability. For example, the external system handles Receivables, and individual journal lines would be created for each invoice, credit memo, receipt, etc.
Are there considerations we should take into account to push back on this request and keep to the summary level data in GL?
