You can control whether it's possible to export film hire values (accruals) multiple times, and if so, how they're recorded in the Daily Posting Journal.
- Go to Head Office > Maintenance > System Settings.
- Edit the setting MultipleAccrualPostingAction to the required value. See below for details.
This setting determines the behaviour of the Daily Posting Journal when a film hire accrual is posted multiple times.
|Separate Postings||The previous accrual post is unaffected, and the new accrual is posted in full.|
|Incremental Postings||The previous accrual post is unaffected, and the new post is the difference between the previous and new accrual amounts.|
|Reverse Previous and Repost||The previous accrual post is reversed, and the new accrual is posted in full.|
|Prevent Multiple Postings||Film hire accrual can only be posted once.|
As an accountant in charge of film hire, Wendy wants film hire accruals to be posted incrementally. She sets MultipleAccrualPostingAction to Incremental Postings.
- The week's film hire accrual for Kingsman 2 is $320. This gets posted to the Daily Posting Journal.
- Later, the film hire accrual amount is revised to $400. A new posting is added to the Daily Posting Journal for the difference only ($80).
