Repacking

Software: MoneyWorks accounting software

Repacking of products occur in trading or OEM (Original equipment manufacturer) businesses. For example, a spices trader may buy the goods in tons but repack into a smaller bag of 25kg or 50kg; or pack into bags or carton with the customer’s branding or languages as required.

You can consider using an assembly method to repack the item into different UOM (unit of measure); in this case, the UOM has changed from kg to bags. For example, you buy item ABC123 in kg but resell to the customer as a bag of 25kg. After records the purchase of ABC123, you create another item and name it as ABC123-25 with the UOM as ‘bag’. Then, go to the BOM tab and select ABC123 as a component with a quantity of 25 (25kg). To automate the process, you may also select ‘Auto Build’, these allow MoneyWorks to create ABC123-25 and deduct the quantity of the source item ABC123 automatically when sold.

Import journals into accounting software

Software: MoneyWorks accounting software

You need to have type, date, reference, account, description, and amount field in the spreadsheet when preparing an import file for journal transaction.

For journal transaction, use “Jn” for type field. You can either have the type field in the spreadsheet or preset it in the import MAP. The Date is the date of the journal transaction, which you can either have it in the import file or set it in the import MAP as the date of import.

The account field captured the account code, which has to be the same code you used in MoneyWorks. You do not need to have the account name as it will pick up from the system automatically. The journal memo map to the description field of the detail line and the amount field contains both debit and credit value (with a negative for credit).
