Asset Revaluation or Impairment – Understanding the Accounting for Fixed Assets in Release 12
Significant changes in financial reporting requirements have transformed the fixed asset accounting framework of companies. International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) require fixed assets to be recorded at cost, but there are two accounting models – the cost model and the revaluation model. So what’s the difference, and when should you consider revaluation versus impairment? This session will address fixed asset accounting and reporting under both models and discuss how each is accounted for in Release 12.
In the story of the Tower of Babel, people’s inability to communicate resulted in them being unable to finish constructing the tower. Many organizations face similar challenges due to silos between disparate parts of the business, resulting in increased costs, risks or failures. Use of multiple Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) instances, different charts of accounts, and a lack of governance and control contribute to these silos. Eliminate the silos to share data effectively and communicate across the organization.
A useful chart of accounts provides flexibility for recording and reporting financial information, brings structure for managing uniformly, and enhances communication. Five fundamental criteria for chart of accounts design in Oracle E-Business Suite will allow your business to create a forward-thinking chart of accounts to optimize growth and flexibility, while minimizing maintenance. Learn the five fundamental design criteria and how to design your own chart of accounts.
Going to Release 12? Upgrading Is Faster, Better and Cheaper than Reimplementing
Many organizations think they cannot upgrade to Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) Release 12 because of existing setups or obsolete structures and configurations. Not true. They ARE able to change existing 11i Oracle EBS setups to meet new requirements, while preserving all history. An upgrade has a lower cost than a reimplementation, and they can change their configurations to streamline their business processes in R12. Learn how your organization can avoid reimplementation and still leverage the features of R12.
How Do You Eat an Elephant? One Byte at a Time.
Oracle E-Business Suite has become the elephant in the room that nobody wants to talk about. The system that supports business-critical operations threatens the organization’s ability to respond to change. Support of outdated configurations and existing implementations are consuming upwards of 65% of the IT budget. Despite a system that is inflexible, expensive to maintain, and a resource hog, smart organizations are on their way to consuming the elephant. What is your elephant? How are you taking your first byte?
Nearly two-thirds of all mergers fail to capitalize on their potential synergy due to an inability to integrate or consolidate diverse cultures, processes and technologies.
