How to use Income statement closing journals functionality?
We have a requirement of generating Income statement closing journals. We have enabled the same at ledger options and after that generated the journals using the ESS 'Create Income Statement Closing Journals'.
I have below questions regarding this functionality -
- Do we need to reverse these journals? The category used in these journals by default is marked for auto reversal.
- As we have enabled the closing journals at ledger options, will the system stop transferring balances to retained earnings at balance level?
While testing this functionality, I have observed that even though closing journal option is enabled, and I have generated (not posted) the Income statement closing journal, upon opening the next period (new year) balances from PnL accounts still got transferred to Retained Earnings account.
