2. General Ledger Account Number Setup

CaseWare Working Papers requires you to specify your general ledger structure, also referred to as your chart of accounts which forms the basis of your annual financial statements.
 
Please contact your appointed Pastel Evolution Administrator or the Pastel Evolution Support Desk should you require assistance with identifying the correct general ledger structure and account information.
 
There are two general ledger setup scenarios available in Pastel Evolution, namely, the
  1. Standard General Ledger Structure (Master – Sub); and
  2. Segmented General Ledger Structure (Consisting between 0 – 10 segments).

3. Accounting Period settings

CaseWare Working Papers requires you to specify the current year of processing in order to import information from Pastel Evolution successfully. Pastel Evolution keeps records for up to 5 years of financial data, before you can purge selected years to open another year. This feature requires you to activate periods for processing or block certain periods to avoid transactions being processed in the incorrect period.
 
To access your accounting periods, go to the Common module...Company Details...Accounting Periods tab.
 
Please contact your appointed Pastel Evolution Administrator or the Pastel Evolution Support Desk should you require assistance with identifying the correct processing period.
