There are three posting layers for transactions.

  • Current is the default layer. This is used for transactions that are part of the periodic financial reporting.

  • Operations is used for other transactions that are part of the periodic financial reporting for internal purposes.

  • Tax is used for transactions that are not part of the external or internal reporting, but that are for recording special tax transactions, such as tax depreciation for fixed assets.

You can post only one transaction type in a journal. You can select a posting layer in the Posting layer field on the General tab in the Journal names form to create at least one journal name for each posting layer that you use.

In the Value models form, the posting layer is displayed for each value model that is attached to the fixed asset. You cannot change the posting layer.

You can record fixed asset transactions in journals only for value models that use the same posting layer as defined for the journal name. For example, if the journal name is for the Tax posting layer, the value models for the Current or Operations posting layers are not displayed for the journal because they cannot be posted in this journal.
