What is a better approach to split the control account per segment?

edited Oct 30, 2023 7:13PM in Ask A Guru 5 comments

Hi Gurus!!!

I have the below scenario,

Vendor Bill GL impact

CR AP 100 - Department "Sales"

DB Expense 50 - Department "Sales"

DB Expense 25 - Department "Logistics"

DB Expense 25 - Department "Legal"

My client wants to get the AP side to also to be distributed per segment based on the amounts:

CR AP 50 - Department "Sales"

CR AP 25 - Department "Sales"

CR AP 25 - Department "Sales"

DB Expense 50 - Department "Sales"

DB Expense 25 - Department "Logistics"

DB Expense 25 - Department "Legal"

Can you please provide insights on the better approach without breaking any normal Account Payables Operations/Reporting?

Because this could be easily done by a Journal Entry or GL custom lines to negate the original AP line and creating 3 extra lines, however i am not sure we can tag the vendor in the custom lines. Not sure if the Balancing segments can be somehow repurposed to achieve this scenario?


Howdy, Stranger!
