The Inflation Adjustment of G/L Accounts program automatically adjusts G/L account balances denominated in foreign currency.

It handles foreign currency accounts and local currency accounts that allow balances in foreign currency.


The program can adjust foreign currency balances in two ways:

The first method splits the inflation adjustment amount into (a) gains or losses on foreign exchange and (b) gains or losses on inflation. In the second method, the entire inflation adjustment amount is treated as a gain or loss on inflation.



To specify which method you want to use for which G/L accounts, set the appropriate flag in the inflation key.

Periodic Processing

The program adjusts each G/L account using the method that you have specified in the inflation key.
