Cintra iQ holds the functionality to produce a costing file that is relevant to your accounting system, so that you can upload the file without having to manually enter the data. 


In my company, I have a monthly payroll for the office staff. I have a weekly payroll for the factory staff. My accounting year runs from 01 July to 30 June. It runs in months. There are twelve accounting months and the first will be in July. In July, I'll need Journals covering the month of July payroll and weeks 14-17 of the weekly payroll. I need to produce a journal for those weeks.

Once the Journal data is extracted, you can set up the Journal Display to see what monies are allocated against the cost codes and how they have been analysed. You can also generate output files within the Journal Display to either review or export directly to the desired location.

To generate a sun account file

  1. Navigate to the Payroll to Accounting Period Selection window.
    Go to Cintra iQ: Payroll> Payroll Tools > Accounting > Journal Display
  2. Click the Generate Sun Accounts File button. The Create Sun Account File window appears.
  3. Enter the relevant instructions based on your Sun Accounts Journal requirements i.e. whether the Cost and Liabilities should be detailed or summary, whether you need separate files for costs and liabilities. And also, if you enter the File Entry Description, determine whether to remove trailing spaces, the Journal Type and Description.
  4. Click on the Ellipsis button to specify the file location. The NDF file path is displayed.
  5. Click the Next button. The Sun Accounts Transfer File appears. Once you have created the file, a confirmation message appears stating: Transfer File [Location path] successfully created.
  6. Click the OK button
