Using Reversing Journals in Scenarios

Reversing Journals are special journals that are automatically reversed after a specified date. hey exist only till that date and are effective only when they are included in reports. These are used in interim reporting in the course of the financial year where accruals are to be reported. These accruals are usually short term and are cleared in the subsequent period. However, to get a proper perspective, decision makers require the reports with full impact of all aspects and transactions.

For example, you can account for or providing for depreciation. Since, provision for depreciation is made at the end of the year, you can  create scenarios to include them for monthly reporting or a specific period to give more accurate status or position.
