Consolidating client accounting data overview

Alerts and notices

The ability to consolidate clients in Accounting CS enables you to combine account and balance data from multiple subsidiary client records into one master client record, while retaining data in the original client records. You can use the consolidated client data for reporting purposes and for making cross-company comparisons. You can also run diagnostics to list any subsidiaries that have changed since the consolidation - accounts added or deleted; account balance changes; account grouping and/or tax code assignment change.
