Cost Center Allocation allows entries in the general ledger to be split against against multiple cost centers.
In the Cost Center Allocation document, you can define allocation percentages of the child cost centers.
In a growing business, it becomes a necessity to analyse the income/expenses against each business unit of the organisation. And to do that, we need to treat each business unit as a cost center and book income/expenses against it.
But if we need to split it every time at the transaction level manually, it becomes very difficult. That's where Cost Center Allocation comes to the rescue.
In OneOfficeERP, we need to define the allocation between multiple cost centers (business units) against a specific master/main cost center. Then whenever we book an invoice or expense transaction against the main cost center, the system automatically splits it based on the allocation, and posts GL entries against each child cost center.
While booking any transaction against the main cost center, the system automatically split the GL Entry against it and posts multiple GL entries based on the applicable cost center allocation record.
