... the all-inclusive software for your trading company

The General Accounting application han­dles all the input and automatically gen­e­ra­ted GA transactions in CMStrade and pro­du­ces the related management and audit reports.

The GA application is based on classical ac­coun­ting principles and mo­dern in­ter­na­tio­nal standards.

It is not a 3rd party software but made by CMS as an integral part of its product.

This permits a very productive co­ha­bi­ta­tion with the other CMStrade ap­pli­ca­tions, which is crucial because in trading, the con­trol and flow of data is actually 2-way with the other applications.

The essential aim of general accounting is hence realised: to be a measure of the health of the whole business.

CMS thus records in the GA - and retains trace-back to the origins - all the fi­nan­ci­al ac­tivity of all the applications.

This coherence and audit-ability of your business data eases compliance with increasingly exigent regulations.

Furthermore, as the CMStrade Accounts Receivable/Payable and Cost Accounting are full integrated applications too, their needs and mechanisms rightly do not en­cum­ber the GA.

Thus, while the CMS accoun­ting ap­pli­ca­tions together comply with the re­quire­ment for coherence and completeness, the GA - and the other spplications - is optimised for its own needs and stays elegantly simple to maintain and use.
