Once the Trial Balance has been imported you are able to map the accounts using an Industry Template or a Custom Template.
An Industry Accounting Structure Template is an Accounting Structure provided by MyWorkpapers with mappings for common software and Accounting Structures.
Note you may wish to use one of our Industry Accounting Structures, however it is possible the account codes may not match the items we have as all software is different. This means on the first import of your trial balance you will need to map the accounts to the correct lead schedules. Once this is done you can save this Accounting Structure and then follow Custom templates below for future trial balances. Click here for information on saving Account Structure Templates.
In order to map to an Industry Template you must be within a client file with a Trial Balance already imported. Click here for information on importing a Trial Balance.
A Custom Template is an Accounting Structure that you have created and saved which is unique to your clients.
Creating a Custom Template gives the flexibility to produce Accounting Structures specific to your clients. The Accounting Structure can then be applied to multiple files and carried forward to following periods.
Note only Accounting Structure Custom Templates with a Released status can be applied to imported trial balances.
For more information on Accounting Structures please refer to Editing an Accounting Structure.
