Managing Booking Detail Center Split

Your business may require to distribute the amount of one or more booking details of the type Revenue over multiple centers. To cover this need, JustOn provides the functionality to split these booking details - either manually or automatically.

Info

This section describes the manual center split. For details about automatically splitting centers, see Enabling Automatic Center Split.

Note

For the manual center split, the Edit Center Split button must be made available in the booking detail list view. For details, see Enabling Manual Center Split.

Editing a center split supports the following actions:

  • Adding a center split: Divides a given booking detail into multiple booking details, which are distributed to multiple cost centers, where the sum of the split amounts equals the original amount.
  • Modifying a center split: Redistributes the split amounts.
  • Deleting a center split: Removes a split portion, redistributing the remaining amount. This option allows for reverting previously split booking details, recombining the portions.

Info

Be aware of the following specifics:

  • The split can be executed for one booking detail in one run. If there are multiple booking details available for splitting, make sure to select one before proceeding.
  • If the booking details of a split operation relate to a closed booking period or are already exported to the accounting system, JustOn creates new booking details to correct the existing ones. The system makes sure that the original amount does not change and that the distribution to each cost center over all related booking details is consistent.
  • New and correcting booking details are moved to the next open booking period. They can be exported to the accounting system as well.
