Understanding The Sage 200 Evolution General Ledger (GL)

All the transactions you process will reflect on your General Ledger. The GL is the core of your business and the General Ledger structure plays a key role in your financial reporting. This is why you need a system that is designed to fulfill all your business accounting requirements.

The Sage 200 Evolution General Ledger is date-driven and allows you to process transactions to any period of your choice at any given time.

The ability to control access to financial periods allows you to avoid the tedious month and year-end processing. With Sage Evolution, you simply process your information, run your reports, and lock the periods and continue processing.
