    Hi Sri Kumar,

    Check following Points from Accounting perspective before Go Live

    1) G/L Account Determination Mapping

    2) Inventory Account mapping based on your 'Set G/L Accounts By' in item

    Check Warehouse mapping if G/L account is set by Warehouse

    Check Item Group mapping if G/L account is set by Item Group

    Check Item mapping if G/L account is set by Item

    3) Check Control Account mapping for Business Partners.

    4) Check Segments for each G/l Account, if you are using segmentation

    5) Check Tax Code, WtTax Code, Freight Code Mapping

    6) Enter Sample Transactions in Demo Database for checking Accounting Effect

    Consult with your company's account department People for checking Accounting Effect

    regards,

      Hi Srikumar,

      Your customer's expectation would be difficult to satisfy. Enter over 7 months back log entry may not be practical. If they have current accounting system, it may never match. Better set opening date as go live date. For all opening documents, they can be entered as service type documents as the actual dates before go live. Make sure the B/S and P/L match their previous account.

      Thanks,

      Gordon

    Hi,

    Have you followed the Accelarated Implementation Program (AIP) available at the Service Market Place, regarding the Business One Implementation? Check that, it has all the stages what needs to be done prior to the Go Live.

    Also, w.r.t. accounting point of view, the same needs to be decided beforehand by the csutomer accountant or CFO who handles the accounting aspect of the business.

    Kind Regards,
