Sabrina needs to be able to have the flexibility with financial dimensions to report our financial results based on our organizations differing requirements. James needs to be able to quickly and easily configure the chart of accounts and account number rules to meet the requirements of our organization and prevent data entry errors. Raman will need to develop the financial plan and goals for the company and continuously monitor performance against them. Others rely on Raman to assess the financial viability of opportunities. Sabrina relies on James to provide her with the information she needs for business insight. Per Raman s request, you will need to setup fiscal calendar, year and periods for financial operation of Seahorse retailers. The Seahorse Retailers fiscal year starts on April 1 st and they need to configure starting from April 1 st of 2015 and add 4 years in the fiscal calendar. Raman has asked you to name each year FY with postfix of the last two digits of the ending year (FY-20XX). Seahorse Retailers, operate in US, EUR and GBP. You are also asked to create a new chart of accounts (COA) and simple account structure which will be extended later with other segments.

They mean close the current form and right click and view details. That is why we have put explanation in each task. Please make sure you see show more section on each guide. 3) do not move anywhere else but where the guide ask you. task guide is not smart enough to track out of sequence activities.

Then you can skip the steps you have already done. 5) do not forget to work in the VM environment rather than from your own PC.
