AutoAccounting Rules In Oracle Fusion

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Auto accounting is used in conjunction with the GL Accounting Key Flexfield. It is used by Oracle Fusion Receivables to derive the segment values (such as Company, Account, Department) for the GL accounts. Autoaccounting is called when creating transactions manually or through Autoinvoice. It is used for Invoices, Credit Memos and Debit Memos.

Auto accounting is derived for multiple accounting types as below:

  • Autoinvoice Clearing
  • Freight
  • Receivable
  • Revenue 
  • Tax 
  • Unbilled Receivable
  • Unearned Revenue

Sources of each account type can be derived from multiple areas

To explain in layman’s language, in example below.

  • Company segment will always be 101 since it is a constant value
  • Department segment can be taken from any the setup from given list of value.

Below are the sources provided by Oracle for different Account class:
