Accrual System of Accounting

• Till now , we were following Cash Based Accounting. Revenue is recognised when it is Received. So , in case of BNPL , Revenue is recognised when it is actually received. Expenditure is recognised at the time of actual expenditure.

• However , in Accrual System of Accounting , Revenue or Expenditure is recognised when it is accrued. For example, BNPL income is recognised when the Service is provided.

• Double Entry System – Debit and Credit

Challenges in new CSI SAP application

➢Double entry accounting system not understood by most of the staff – resulting in incorrect accounting

➢Mccamish is still not integrated – Voucher posting being done to incorporate transactions

➢Network instability affects performance – Transactions could not be performed on many days due to network failure, Current bandwidth is also an issue.

➢Certain defects in the applications affecting operations– being resolved in consultation with TCS

Changes in CSI impacting inspection

➢ Relation between HO, SO and BO do not exist for accounting purpose.

➢ Post offices are identified with facility ID for general use, with profit centre ID for cash transactions, cost centre ID for posting expenses and fund centre ID for budget transactions.

➢ Stamp balance does not form part of the balance of an office. It is categorized as inventory till sale occurs.

➢ Remittances in transit are not held as part of the balance of remitting office.

➢ EOD is prescribed for POS and every postman in DPMS; there is no EOD for F&A.

➢ Transactions can be corrected at any time before the close of the period.

➢ POS is offline and syncs with central server at an interval of 4 minutes.

➢ Other modules are online
