General Ledger

The General Ledger system is closely integrated with the rest of the modules that make up the Labor Contractor’s Office. All information that you enter is updated to the general ledger automatically, so you don’t need to know what accounts should be debited or credited.

In addition, the individual modules that make up The Labor Contractor’s Office get balances directly from the general ledger for specific accounts. For example, the bank balance displayed on the Checkbook window is directly taken from your general ledger cash in bank account. The Tax Deposit window in the payroll gets the balances for each tax from the general ledger liability accounts. And the payable and receivable aging reports use the appropriate general ledger account balances when printing aging reports as control totals.

Such integration between the components of The Labor Contractor’s Office gives you greater confidence in the accuracy of the report totals, bank balances, and payroll taxes due.

Some of the features of the General Ledger system include:

  • Full double entry accounting system with fiscal year independent of the calendar year.
  • The standard Chart of Accounts supplied with The Labor Contractor’s Office can be modified for your specific farming operation.
  • Payroll checks, payable invoices, checks, deposits and receivable invoices are automatically updated to the General Ledger.
