- NetSuite and Intacct both offer Multi-Book Accounting (MBA) functionality, which provides the ability to maintain and report on multiple sets of financial books in parallel within NetSuite or Intacct.
- This feature was first introduced to due to an increasing number of global clients who needed a way to report their financials in both US GAAP and local statutory in different countries, and often in different currencies.
- But with ASC 606 Compliance implementation under way, many companies are now using MBA to transition to the new revenue recognition standard by keeping their old revenue recognition engine and posting to one book while concurrently updating a second book that has all the new rules in place.
How does NetSuite Multi-Book work in FloQast?
- Multi-Books are set at the Entity level by a FloQast Admin.
- This feature toggle is available on the Manage Reconciliations page for Admins.
- Once the Multi-Book feature is turned on, FloQast automatically fetches all Book IDs from NetSuite/Intacct, and these IDs get populated in a dropdown menu in the Accounts section.
- As far as a FloQast User is concerned, there aren't any visible changes in the client facing aspect of the application.
- If you are an Intacct client, this is automatically synced each time you log into FloQast.
- If you are a NetSuite client, you can do Sync your GL under the Manage Entities section pictured below:
2. Navigate to Admin Settings > Reconciliation Settings and select the desired Entity
3. Switch on the “Multi-Book Reconciliation” feature for that entity by clicking on the slider
The Book IDs in FloQast correspond to your Internal Book IDs in NetSuite/Intacct.
Your Primary Book in FloQast corresponds to your Primary Book in NetSuite/Intacct.
Book settings can be updated at any time.
- Export/Import Rec templates is also functional for bulk updates using columns N and O:
