Processing Journal Entries

Journal Entries are created in the PeopleSoft Finance system when you need to make an entry to the general ledger that is not coming from a subsystem. The most common uses of journals are: making corrections to a financial transaction on a SpeedType, and recording activity in accordance with GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles), such as accruals, allowance for bad debts, and inventory adjustments.
