Contract and Sundry Sales Ledger

The Construction and Contracting Industry is unique in the transaction types required to process a “sale”. The way these transactions affect the management accounts varies from company to company. Using our experience in the contracting sector, RedSky has created a very flexible contract sales ledger.

The ledger is fully parameter-driven, which allows users to configure the business’ transaction types and how they affect the system. Once defined, these rules are specified to apply to future transactions (for example, applications are memoranda only and not subject to VAT).

What's Included:

To ensure only authorised personnel can access the Nominal Ledger, security is defined as a menu option and at the account level. This security is carried over for reporting.

All information is easily accessible using the flexible on-screen enquiry routines.
