8 Oracle Financials What’s New in Release 12

9 What’s New in R12 Financials Bank Model Tax Engine Inter Company General Ledger Ledger & Ledger Sets General Ledger Ledger & Ledger Sets Subledger Accounting (SLA) Dr Cr Projects Receivables Inventory Work in Process Purchasing Payables Multi-Org Access Control 6 Major Initiatives 1.Ledger and Ledger Sets 2.Subledger Accounting 3.MOAC 4.Intercompany 5.Tax Engine 6.Bank Model

10 Ledgers and Ledger Sets

11 Ledgers in Oracle A set of accounting information for a legal or business entity Each ledger is associated with a Chart of accounts, Calendar, Currency, and Subledger Accounting Convention for which accounting information is recorded 11i & Prior = Sets of Books 3 C’s: Currency, Calendar, Chart R12 = Ledgers 4 C’s: Currency, Calendar, Chart, Convention Seeded Conventions: Standard AccrualStandard Accrual Standard CashStandard Cash Accrual w/ EncumbranceAccrual w/ Encumbrance Cash w/ EncumbranceCash w/ Encumbrance US Federal AccountingUS Federal Accounting China Standard AccrualChina Standard Accrual Seeded Conventions: Standard AccrualStandard Accrual Standard CashStandard Cash Accrual w/ EncumbranceAccrual w/ Encumbrance Cash w/ EncumbranceCash w/ Encumbrance US Federal AccountingUS Federal Accounting China Standard AccrualChina Standard Accrual

12 US GAAP US COA US Calendar EUR Ledger B French Rules French COA French Calendar EUR Ledger A Multiple Accounting Representations Parallel Financial Reporting with Ledgers Subledger Accounting Single subledger transaction can create multiple accounting representations and in multiple currencies Single subledger transaction can create multiple accounting representations and in multiple currencies Dr Cr Payables Invoice

13 Multiple Ledgers Primary Ledger the main “Activity” Ledger Usually in the local currency For Operational reporting Secondary Ledger (ex. France requires Statutory Chart) Differs from Primary Ledger by Chart, Calendar, and/or Convention For Statutory, Tax or Consolidated reporting Reporting Currency Ledger Differs from Primary Ledger by Currency ONLY Just a translation of the Primary Ledger – no rules required For Consolidated reporting

14 Ledger Sets Global Information At A Glance Ledger Set Key benefits to many Ledgers in one set Decision-driving business information always available Simpler processing and General Ledger management Data and definitions that can be shared and secured US GAAP US COA US Calendar USD US GAAP US COA US Calendar USD Ledger C US GAAP US COA US Calendar EUR Ledger B French Rules French COA French Calendar EUR Ledger A Share: Chart of Accounts Calendar Share: Chart of Accounts Calendar Ledger D Reporting Currency US GAAP US COA US Calendar AUD

15 LEDGER SETS Grouping of ledgers with the same chart of accounts and calendar/period type combination Essentially treats multiple ledgers as one

16 Perform the Following Across Ledgers Using Ledger Sets Open/Close Periods Create Journals Allocations Across Ledgers Recurring Journals for All Ledgers Elimination Sets for All Ledgers Translate and Revalue Balances View Information without Changing Responsibilities View Journals and Account Balances Across Ledgers Submit Standard Reports Create Financial Statements that Include Data for Multiple Ledgers

17 Ledger Set Benefits Shorter Close Process Run month-end close processes across multiple ledgers simultaneously Greater flexibility to decentralize/centralize accounting functions The corporate office can control the period status for multiple subsidiaries at once Real-Time Enterprise-Wide Visibility Quickly report across the entire enterprise in real-time because no transfer of data is required Reported results are accurate and timely because they are based on the transactional system, not a data warehouse

18 More Efficient Access to Ledger Data No need to change responsibilities to access data in different ledgers Processing Efficiency Essentially treats multiple ledgers as one and eliminates the overhead of having a high number of ledgers defined Reduces the number of repetitive tasks that offer limited value and allows you to spend more time on value-added tasks Reporting Efficiency Obtain “flash” reports throughout the accounting cycle to proactively manage the business instead of waiting until the end of the month when the data collected is backward looking Ledger Set Benefits

19 Impacted Applications Ledger Sets Ledger Sets used by General Ledger Some AR and AP reports use Ledger Sets

20 Impact/Upgrade Considerations Ledger Sets None; All sets of books upgraded to ledgers Only need to define ledger sets to obtain processing efficiencies

21 Subledger Accounting

22 ProjectsProjects ReceivablesReceivables PayablesPayables 3 rd Party Systems InventoryInventory Internal control and compliance with multiple accounting policies through user-defined accounting rules Single source of truth for all subsystem accounting activity with a common data model and repository Accounting, reconciliation and reporting facilitated by centralized data model Streamline closing process with common posting engine Auditable and transparent entries accessible with full drilldown SLA = Centralized Accounting Model, Rules, Engine and Repository SLA = Centralized Accounting Model, Rules, Engine and Repository Dr Cr General Ledger Work in Process PurchasingPurchasing Subledger Accounting Centralized Rules, Common Repository: Global Control

23 Introduction to Subledger Accounting Rule-based accounting engine, toolset & repository supporting Oracle E-Business Suite modules Allows multiple accounting representations for a single business event, resolving conflicts between corporate and local fiscal accounting requirements Retains the most granular level of detail in the subledger accounting model, with different summarization options in the General Ledger, allowing full auditability and reconciliation Introduces a common data model and UI across subledgers, replaces various disparate 11i setups, providing single source of truth for financial and management analysis

24 Introduction to Subledger Accounting DUAL POSTING SIMULTANEOUSLY Invoice Internal Identifier: 1001 Ledger: FR Statutory GL Date: 2-Mar-2006 Invoice# 100 Supplier: ABC Networks Invoice #100 ABC Networks 2 Monitors – Marketing $ Printers – Marketing $ 500 Freight $ 100 Tax $ 110 Total $1710 Ledger: US Corporate GL Date: 2-Mar-2006 Invoice# 100 Supplier: ABC Networks Invoice Internal Identifier: 1001 DRCR 1 Expense 01-EXP-200$ Freight 01-FR-200$100 3 Tax 01-TX-200 $110 4 Liability 01-LIAB-200$1710 Invoice Line 1 Invoice Line 2 Invoice Line 3 Invoice Line 4

25 Transactions vs. Accounting SLA provides a distinction between a transaction and the accounting representation of the transaction (there can be multiple representations of one transaction) Accounting distributions did not necessarily go away Needed for upgrade customers Needed as starting point for SLA (Don’t want to force customers to define their own SLA rules) In some cases, necessary to allow user input Most default SLA rules just ‘pass through’ the distribution accounts (where applicable)

26 Streamline Accounting

27 Impacted Applications General Ledger Payables Receivables Projects Assets Costing OPM Public Sector/Federal Payroll Property Manager Loans Lease Management (Post R12) Cash Management Globalizations Intercompany

28 Subledger Journal Entry – more info

29 Subledger Entry vs. GL Journal Entries Many to One Invoice No: GL Date: 01/27/073 rd Party: Fender ,000 EUR ,000 EUR Invoice No: GL Date: 01/27/073 rd Party: Gibson ,000 EUR ,000 EUR Invoice No: GL Date: 01/27/073 rd Party: Kramer ,000 EUR ,000 EUR Batch: AP Invoices 27-Jan-07GL Period: Jan ,000 EUR ,000 EUR SLA JE #1 SLA JE #2 SLA JE #3 GL JE #1 Controlled by GL JE Summarization setting for each Subledger App (AP, AR, etc): Summarize by GL Date, by GL Period, or No Summarization

30 Upgrade Considerations By default, the R12 upgrade migrates at least 6 periods of accounting entries from each application to the SLA data model. You can modify this if desired. For prior periods, the historical data is preserved. You can drill from General Ledger to the historical transactions using standard GL drilldown

87 Why Upgrade ?

88 “Ability to issue one payment instruction to the bank for payments of invoices in multiple operating units was viewed as a huge benefit from the user community.” “We have 60 sets of books and see tremendous efficiencies with running processes across these sets of books using Ledger Sets.” Why Upgrade Straight Talk from Customers “The ability to access multiple operating units with a single responsibility can simplify SOX compliance monitoring.” “Multi-Org Access Control (MOAC) will definitely reduce the workload and the number of people performing process related tasks. The users are very excited and the benefits of MOAC were readily visible to them.” “Banks, taxes, payments, and accounting – everything that becomes centralized will bring tremendous efficiencies to our organization.” “The functionality offered with Advanced Global Intercompany System (AGIS), specifically the creation of physical invoices to be created for I/C transactions in Payables and Receivables eliminates many customizations in this area.” “Centralization of subledger accounting rules would minimize set up and maintenance, providing greater financial control, and enforcing a consistent approach for true global accounting.”
