    Payroll-to-GL: Accomdating Multiple Ledgers from One Payroll
    Payroll-to-GL: Accomdating Multiple Ledgers from One Payroll

    I have a client that has presented me with the following business scenario:  They have a US Payroll.  One company (out of dozens) in the US Payroll needs to be charged to a Canada ledger and Canada business unit.

    My understanding was that there is a 1:1 relationship between payrolls and ledgers – i.e., when interfaced from Payroll through Subledger Accounting, that 1:1 relationship exists.

    Client would prefer not to separate this one company into a separate Payroll.

    If someone has encountered a scenario like this, I would appreciate hearing from you on how you solutioned.  Thank you.

      hi steve

      i seen this scenario alot with US employees that are expatriates in canada.

      there are two options implemented for different clients

      1- expatriates are charged to a new company (e.g. global mobility).

      2- or expatriates are charged to US as balance segment value and canada as intercompany segment value.


      either option will help you extract trial balance and load it to the canadian ledger or cross charge the net through global intercompany.


      hope this helps
