Understanding Subledgers and General Ledger

Transacting is done in the separate subledgers and then flow into the General Ledger.

This diagram illustrates the flow of transactions from subledgers into the General Ledger. Accounts Payable and Accounts Receivable can push data directly into the General Ledger, without PPM involvement, or PPM can be an intermediary that collects and/or creates transactions before the data is aggregated to the GL.
