Departments are used to apply against transactions to provide breakdown in reporting, for example Sales Department and Service Department.

Departments can be set either Cost Centre or Profit Centre. Cost Centre only applies to AP transactions; whereas Profit Centre appears in both AR and AP.

 To use the departments feature you simply select the appropriate department when creating AP & AR transactions such as Sales Invoices and Purchase Orders and also GL Transactions.

* Note: The reports can be filtered by departments. This will only display transactions linked to the filtered department. For example, the Income Statement and Balance sheet can be compared and displayed per department as well as the company as a whole.
