  11. Click General ledger > Setup > Deferrals > Writing off methods.

  12. Press CTRL+N to create a new line.

  13. In the Writing off method field, enter the write-off method code.

  14. In the Name field, enter the name of the write-off method.

  15. In the Type field, select the write-off method type from the following options:

    • Linear – Provides an equivalent amount for deferrals write-off within a given interval over the defined period.

    • Manual – The percentage of the total to be written off in each period is entered manually in the Manual schedules form.

    • Linear with factor – The calculated result is multiplied by a calculated ratio.


    Set the deferred expense write-off factor between 0 and 1, defined according to the following formula: Factor = Standard Amount / Base Amount. In order to take into account the deferred write-off for the current period during factor calculation, define the value of the base amount with the line type Deferral write-off.

  16. In the Writing off period field, select the write-off period for the deferred expense.

  17. Click the General tab. In the Calculation period field, select the calculation period for deferrals write-off from the following options:

    • Month – The deferrals write-off calculation is performed proportionately to the number of months in the given period.

    • Day – The deferrals write-off calculation is performed proportionately to the number of days in the selected period. This allows calculation of deferrals write-off during an incomplete reporting period, depending on the number of calendar days.

    • Period – The deferrals write-off calculation is performed proportionately to the number of periods that are defined in the Writing off period field.


      This field is activated only if you select Linear or Linear with factor in the Type field on the Overview tab. The calculation period defines the level of detail to be used when performing the calculation.

  18. In the Round-off field, enter the round-off for the deferrals write-off amount. For example, if the figure 0.01 is specified, then figures will be rounded off to two decimal places.

  19. Click Manual schedules to open the Manual schedules form, and enter the write-off schedule for the manual write-off method.


    This button is activated only if you select Manual in the Type field.
