Keeping You Up-To-Date With Information About Sage 100
DSD Multi-Company Processing Enhancements
By: Chris Wilbur, Senior Business Analyst/Consultant
Although DSD Business Systems offers several other multi-company enhancements for Sage 100 (MAS 90), we have found the following to be the most popular.
Accounts Payable Multi-Company allows a company to distribute an invoice to an unlimited number of other Sage 100 companies. Each line in Invoice Data Entry has a new Company Code column, and the accounts displayed in the account number lookup are from the chart of accounts for the company selected on that line. For each transaction distributed to another company, a corresponding amount is put to both companies’ pre-defined intercompany accounts, in order to keep each company’s GL in balance.
Additionally, a unique GL posting date can be assigned to each invoice within a batch. Normally, all invoices in a batch are posted to the same date in the GL.

General Ledger Multi-Company allows a company to make journal entries which are distributed to other Sage 100 companies. Similar to the AP Multi-Company enhancement, the grid entry window contains a new column for the Company Code, and account lookups display the chart of accounts for the company selected on that line. For each transaction distributed to another company, a corresponding amount is posted to both companies’ Inter-company Offset Accounts, in order to keep each of those General Ledgers in balance.
G/L Daily Transaction Register by Company provides the ability to print and update the Daily Transaction Register for multiple companies at once. Although the above enhancements create the entries needed in the other companies, the Daily Transaction Register must be printed and updated in those companies to be reflected as posted transactions. If you have many companies with intercompany transactions, this one can be a time saver.
