IFRS in Dynamics GP – Can You Do It?

Email | Print

Absolutely. Dynamics GP is IFRS ready.

There are 5 available methods of deploying International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) within Microsoft® GP.

  1. Duplicating your database then adding adjusting entries in the new database
  2. Adding a parallel set of accounts representing the new ledger to your existing chart of accounts, providing for segment differentiation for the divergent standards.  This method increases the number of accounts in your general ledger.
  3. Adding an Analytical Accounting dimension to your existing ledger accounts. This method doesn’t increase the number of accounts in your general ledger, but does add another dimension that must interface with your financial report writer, FRx or Management Reporter.
  4. Classifying transactions by ledger within your existing chart of accounts—in Microsoft Dynamics® GP, a method in addition to adding a dimension.  This method could be termed to add an attribute to each transaction.
  5. A hybrid approach combining two of the other methods.
