Sage 300 Multi company management

Comprehensive Multi-entity Accounting

Most businesses that operate internationally do so under a number of subsidiaries or other legal entities.

In some cases, these are like divisions of one company in disparate locations.

In other operational models, the subsidiaries may function like independent businesses from day to day.

One thing is always true: To make successful strategic plans and achieve financial objectives, your corporate headquarters needs accurate, reliable multi-entity accounting that is easy to implement and use.

With Sage 300, you’ll effortlessly process inter-company transactions and roll up the numbers across all entities for precise insight into the overall financial health of your business.

G/L Consolidations

The G/L Consolidations module lets you transfer and merge General Ledger account and transaction information between separate company and branch office locations. It is also designed to enable subsidiaries and holding companies to run across different networks and accounting databases.

G/L Consolidations allows your company to define the level of detail to consolidate and provides a comprehensive audit trail. The system is available in two versions:

  • a full version for the head office, and,
  • a remote-sites version for branch offices.


  • Consolidate all accounts or a partial set of accounts using the automatic balancing account.
  • Use mapping tables to combine general ledger amounts for companies with different fiscal years, fiscal periods, and even different account structures.
  • Merge multiple subsidiary accounts into a single holding company account.
  • Specify a description for account balances or net change transactions.
  • Allocate transactions originating in a holding company back to subsidiaries.

With Multi-currency Manager installed:

  • Automatically perform currency translations and account for any resulting gains or losses.
  • Consolidate multi currency and single currency accounts and general ledgers with different functional currencies.
  • Translate amounts from the functional or source currency in the originating ledger and specify the translation rate type.

Inter-company Transactions

The Inter-company Transactions module simplifies and significantly reduces the amount of work required to record General Ledger and Accounts Payable transactions across multiple companies. Using this module, you can automatically distribute your transactions to the appropriate companies and corresponding inter company loan accounts based on relationships you define.


  • Automatically make loan account entries for inter-company transactions and distribute invoices to as many General Ledger accounts as required.
  • Enter transaction references and descriptions to provide a detailed audit trail for reconciliation purposes.
  • Handle tax computations for expensed, allocated, or recoverable taxes.
  • Print an inter-company loan account reconciliation report to identify errors between companies.
  • Process inter-company General Ledger journal entries and inter-company Accounts Payable invoices, debit notes,
    and credit notes.

With Multi-currency Manager installed:

  • Define relationships and record transactions between originating companies, intermediate companies, and destination companies having different functional currencies.
  • Process multi-currency transactions for multi-currency or single-currency intermediate and destination companies.
