The Financial Systems that will Interact with Your Lease Accounting Software

As you are evaluating, selecting, and implementing lease accounting software, you will need to consider how the new application will interact with the other financial and operational systems in your IT ecosystem. Some interactions are obvious while others are not.

Perhaps the most important system to consider is the general ledger. You will want the debits and credits created from your leasing subledger to be uploaded into your GL on a monthly basis. The lease accounting data can be consolidated with other journal entries to generate the appropriate financial reports and disclosures.
