This is the heart of the accounting functionality in Jim2. From here you can query and trace financial transactions, examine your accounts and make adjustments, if needed.
Jim2 is an accrual based accounting system. The only cash based reporting is for GST reporting.
Jim2 does not include a payroll calculation engine, and therefore does not offer Single Touch Payroll reporting. If your entire general ledger is being maintained in Jim2, you will need to move totals from your payroll software into Jim2 by way of general journals, and record the accumulations and liabilities of each payroll in the associated general ledger accounts for each payroll period.
Jim2 does not have an automated depreciation function. It holds the value of fixed assets and any accumulated depreciation via the general ledger. In a typical Jim2 site, the depreciation entries are done via a general journal. The detail of that journal is either from an external accountant or via a system or spreadsheet outside of Jim2.
The values held in the general ledger should conform to those from the external accountant, plus any movements in the year.

Right Click Options in the Nav Tree
After the top 3 (which are self explanatory), these options mirror what is in the ribbon in the Accounts tab, except for the last tab, which will reset all tabs back to default.
