Distribute monthly expense for one or more records to multiple multiple branch, cost, revenue and other centers using one or more Allocation Methods maintained in the software.

Use one Method. Use many methods. Assign each Method a name that is meaningful to you, perhaps "SQ" to mean the Allocation Method is based on the amount of square feet occupied by a department. Or "EMP" to allocate using the number of employees in each branch.

Each Method contains your chart of account branch numbers (or cost/revenue center numbers or ....) along with the number of units each contains, such as square feet, employee count and even your own assigned percentage. Any type of numerical value including "1" to allocate the same amount to each branch (if you have 6 branches, the software will allocate 1/6th to each branch).

To allocate a record, merely replace the branch portion of a general ledger account number with the Method name. More than one record can use the same Method.

The system will calculate the percentage being allocated to each branch based on number of units and create multiple posting records, each for smaller amounts that add up to the original.

Records are normally edited using the software's setup/edit screen, either one record at a time or in sequential order.
The editing screen:
          Performs data value testing
          Displays an immediate amortization schedule

But there may be times when you'd prefer to use Excel.
This 3 step option allows you to:
     1) Copy the master file to a spreadsheet, such as Excel.
     2) Edit records using all of the spreadsheet functions.
               Edit records
               Add records
               Delete records
               Fill down
               Sort
               Other Excel capabilities
     3) Copy records from the spreadsheet and paste back to/as the revised master file.
               The software verifies all data values and relationships, such as dates, are valid and compatible.

Periodic
     •  Monthly (system default)
     •  Bi-monthly
     •  Quarterly
     •  Tri-annual
     •  Semi-annual
     •  Annual

Odd periods
     •  Irregular frequencies (e.g. take 20% in months 1 and 2, then nothing for 6 months, then 40% and 20%)
     •  Pre-determined amounts (e.g. take $10,000 in month 1, then $5,000 and then $2,000 each month for remainder of term)
     •  Send amortization schedule to person requesting the above and verify results

Consumption
     Recognize bulk items, such as ink cartridges, stationery, marketing material and
     other prepaid inventory based upon each month's consumption (or zero).
               Monthly expense = consumption count / original inventory count * Cost.
               Book value corresponds to remaining inventory count (also provided by the software).
               Remaining terms can be shortened if inventory is exhausted beforehand.
               Remaining terms can be lengthened to account for a remaining inventory.
         Also applicable for retainers and other prepaids where monthly usage is unknown at setup time.  Enter as it becomes known.
         Consumption can be entered as count, hours (e.g. professional retainer), percentages, dollar amounts, other numerical units.

Assign any of 6 Amortization Methods at the record level


1)  Straight Line: 30 day financial months. Same amount each month. Any odd amount is taken in the first month.
1,200.00 over 12 months = 100.00 per month.



2)  Begin Date TO Review/Maturity Date: All months are 360 day basis (internally, a date of the 31st is changed to the 30th).
Partial first month and partial last month recognition supported. Any odd amount may be taken in first and/or final month. Begin Date is included. Review/Maturity Date is TO, not Through. If dates are the same, nothing will be recognized.

For Half Month convention: Set Begin Date to 16th. For a 12 month term, set Review/Maturity Date to 1st of the month following the 12th month. For "in service" period of one year, set Review/Maturity Date to the 16th of the Begin Date month plus 1 year.



3)  Begin Date TO Review/Maturity Date: All months are actual days, 365/366 basis.
Partial first month and partial last month recognition supported. Any odd amount is taken in final month. Begin Date is included. Review/Maturity Date is TO, not Through. If dates are the same, nothing will be recognized.



4)  Accelerated, also known as Sum-of-the-years digits (S-Y-D): More is taken in first month, then declines. Any odd amount is taken in final month.
1,200.00 over 12 months = 12/78 for the first month, then 11/78, then 10/78 and so forth.



5)  Recurring item or don't perform any calculations: Use Calculated field values which you enter.
Typically represents a record created for balancing purposes or a recurring amount when Expense contains a value.
Consider Method 5 as a "wildcard" wherein the software will report whatever is entered into the record.
Method 5 Review Date is for Review Date reporting only and does not "end" a recurring status. Begin Date, Alternate field values and Take Prior Thru date are ignored.



6)  Alternative Recognition of Cost based upon Total Units and Monthly Units, also known as
"Amortize cost however your boss tells you to" including monthly, quarterly, semi-annual ....  Any frequency.


The system can recognize Cost based upon a count of Total Units reduced by Monthly units (including 0) which are used or consumed in a given month.
Total Units - A positive number
Total Units might represent:

● Percent, where Total Units = 100
Monthly Units are the percent of Cost to recognize in each month.

● Prepaid service, where Total Units might = Hours (such as 650 prepaid professional services)
Monthly Units are the number of hours utilized or consumed.
When the record is first entered to the system, "hours utilized" are likely to be unknown. Simply enter zero for Month1 Units. As "hours utilized" become known, enter the hours into the appropriate Monthly Units category.

● Inventory, where Total Units = Inventory Count (such as 2,950 widgets)
Monthly Units are the count of items removed from inventory and entered each month.
Inventory can refer to any physical count, including office supplies, such as prepaid ink cartridges and other expensive items retaining a value.

● Dollar amounts, where Total Units might = Cost
Monthly Units are specific dollar amounts to recognize each month.

● Virtually any other type of Units.

The system recognizes monthly Amortization by multiplying Cost times (Monthly Units / Total Units) where the "/" means "divided by".
(Monthly Units / Total Units) derives a percentage. In effect, all Amortization utilizing Method 6 is a reduction by percentage.
When the sum of Monthly Units is less than Total Units, the system recognizes remaining Book Value in the final month.
And, as discussed below under "Extend the Term", if Monthly Units are not entirely consumed during the initial Term, you can extend the Term which will also extend Book Value Amortization.

Monthly Units - Positive, negative or zero
Positive, to reduce Total Units remaining.
Negative, to increase Total Units remaining (typically to correct an error or return).
When Monthly Units are negative:
Remaining Units will be increased.
Amortization for the month will be negative. However, it will not exceed the prior month's Accumulated Amortization. In other words, Book Value will increase but not exceed original Cost.
0, meaning zero units were used in a month. No Amortization will be recognized.
Zero Monthly Units also allow Amortization to be recognized other than monthly. Use zero Monthly Units to "skip" months, thus accommodating Quarterly, Bi-Monthly and other Amortization frequencies.

Monthly Units - Unknown
Current and future Monthly Units can be blank (nothing - no entry or 0), meaning Monthly Units have not yet been determined.
Example:
Total Units = 960 based upon future reductions at an unknown rate.
Set Monthly Units to 0 or leave them blank (nothing).
At the end of each month, enter that month's Monthly Units including 0 if none were used.
When Monthly Units are blank or 0, the system does not recognize any Cost. The system waits until the final month to recognize any/all unentered Units, thus allowing you enter Monthly Units on a monthly basis.
Caution: Once Monthly Posting has been run for a month, it is too late to change Monthly Units from blank or 0 unless you run another Monthly Posting (for the same month).

Non-Monthly recognition - Quarterly, bi-monthly, annually ....
Amortization can occur on an other than monthly basis.
To accomplish this, enter Total Units of 100, representing Percent. Enter Monthly Units in the months you want recognition to occur and zero in the Months you don't want to recognize anything.
Example:
Quarterly recognition
Total Units = 100
Set 25 into 4 of the months, leaving other months at 0.
Each month with 25 will recognize 25/100 or 25%
You can enter Monthly Units (including 0) into any month to create a recognition pattern of any kind and frequency.

Extend the Term:
If Units remain at the end of the Term, you can:
1) Do nothing. The system will recognize remaining Book Value in full.
2) Extend the Term (only if the final month Amortization has not been booked to the general ledger).
On the Field Editing screen, select "Adjustment F8" and extend the Term, then modify/enter Units for the additional remaining Term.
You can Extend the original Term or remaining Term at any time for any purpose utilizing "Adjustment F8".

How it works
Each month, the system divides Monthly Units by Total Units to derive a percentage. This percentage is multiplied by Cost to determine how much Cost to recognize in the given month.
If the total of Monthly Units is less than Total Units, the system recognizes the remaining Cost in the final month.
The system keeps track of Total Units and Monthly Units by appending the values to Method in Field 6.

Allocate amortized expense
Distribute one or more general ledger posting amounts to multiple branch, cost, revenue and other centers using one or more Allocation Methods maintained in the software.

You assign each Method a name that is meaningful to you, perhaps "SQ" to mean the Allocation Method is based on the amount of square feet occupied by a department.
Or "EMP" to allocate using the number of employees in each branch.

Each Method contains your chart of account branch numbers (or cost/revenue center numbers or ....) along with the number of units each contains, such as square feet, employee count and even your own assigned percentage. Any type of numerical values. To allocate a record, merely replace the branch portion of a general ledger account number with the Method name. The system will calculate the percentage being allocated to each branch based on number of units and create multiple posting records, each for smaller amounts that add up to the original.

     •  Units other than % or $ with ability to adjust estimates during term

Consumption with Inventory Control
     •  Amortize bulk items, such as ink cartridges, stationery, marketing material and other prepaid inventory based upon each month's consumption (or zero).
               Monthly expense = consumption count / original inventory count * Cost.
               Book value corresponds to remaining inventory count (also provided by the software).
               Remaining terms:
                    Shorten remaining term if inventory is exhausted beforehand.
                    Extend remaining term to account for a remaining inventory.
         Also applicable for retainers and other prepaids where monthly usage is unknown at setup time.  Enter as it becomes known.
         Consumption can be entered as count, hours (e.g. professional retainer), percentages, dollar amounts, other numerical units.
