Introduction

This Blogs will provide information about the Cash position inquiry and cash control feature.
The Cash Position inquiry allows you to determine the corresponding cash positions for financial dimension sets that contain self-balancing dimensions. The inquiry shows the beginning cash balance, and the effect of the addition of cash receipts, the subtraction of cash disbursements and the subtraction of interfund transfers to arrive at an ending balance. Then from the ending balance, general budget reservations, encumbrances or pre-encumbrances are subtracted to arrive at an unencumbered balance.

Pre-requisite : To enable this feature go to Workspace < Feature Management <All and search Cash Position inquiry. And then enable now.

The cash control limit is compared to the cash control balance (cash account balance minus all posted, unpaid Accounts payable invoices). When the cash control balance is less than the cash control limit, the limit is exceeded.

We recommend that you add all financial dimension strings for all valid cash accounts. You can then specify which cash accounts are subject to the cash control limit.
7. In the Cash account field, enter the cash account financial dimension string. You must enter complete account numbers.
8. Select the Participate check box to indicate that the cash account financial dimension string is subject to cash control. These cash accounts and the corresponding Accounts payable accounts are validated against the cash control configuration rules.
9. Optional: In the Accounts payable account field, enter the Accounts payable account financial dimension string that is used with vendor invoices. You must enter a complete account number.
10. In the Threshold field, enter the amount that must remain in the cash account to pass validation. You can enter a negative number if the cash account can be overdrawn (that is, the transaction amounts can exceed the account balance).

The inquiry includes the following information:

• The current cash account balance
• The balance of all posted, unpaid Accounts payable invoices that are applied to the cash account’s corresponding Accounts payable account
• The cash control balance, or the current cash account balance minus all posted, unpaid Accounts payable invoices
• The cash control limit, so that you can compare it to the cash control balance and determine whether payment of the Accounts payable

invoices will cause the cash account balance to fall below the cash control limit
