8 Questions for FICO Candidates

Part I: Accounts Payable

Controlling out going expenses and logging payments to vendors keeps operations running smoothly. An Beginner Training course covers many of the basics for both accounts payable and receivable.

Question 1

How can you use the additional log in the AP payment program for troubleshooting?

Any errors in a payments run, regardless of the reason, are reported in the additional log, allowing corrections to be made rapidly, reducing error rates.

Question 2

How do you handle cash transactions or single purchase vendors?

Not every vendor needs a new master record. When you only purchase from them once, or when paying cash, a dummy code can be used on the invoice entry, and information traditionally stored in a master record is recorded on the individual invoice.

Part II: Accounts Receivable

Question 1

How is debt collection or dunning handled using ERP?

ERP allows for different levels of debt collection notices. Depending on the age of the overdue payment, collection letters can range from reminder notices to legal notifications.

Question 2

How can you maximize productivity when sending out correspondence?

ERP allows you to generate correspondence requests as you work, creating invoices, statements and more, for later printing. This allows you to do all printing as a single batch at the end of the work day.

Part III: General Ledger

The general ledger contains a record of all financial transactions. ERP GRC Training ensures that applicants know how to set up and run software to properly track transactions.

Question 1

What Fiscal year options are available using ERP?

A fiscal year is nothing more than a designated way to store financial data. In ERP, you have twelve periods and four special periods, allowing for both monthly and quarterly data organization. There are two types of fiscal years that are available: Calender year and Year dependent fiscal year.

Question 2

What types of GL accounts should be posted automatically?

Stock and consumption accounts are the most common, and creating the automatic posting option is fairly simple. In the GL account master record, check the box next to “Post Automatically Only.”

Part IV: Controlling

Controlling expenses and auditing accounting practices keeps a business on solid financial footing. ERP Security Training ensures accounting professionals are up-to-date on how to restrict access to secure information. Additionally, ERP BEx Analyzer training allows users to generate custom reports that show the exact data you need.

Question 1

What is the organizational assignment in the controlling module?

Every company has a unique company code assigned. The controlling module allows you to create a controlling area which contains all activities related to cost center accounting, product costing and profitability analysis.

Question 2

Describe the relationship between cost center accounting and profit center.

Cost centers allow companies to capture all costs related to daily businesses operations, generally excluding unavoidable monthly expenses like rent or utilities. Administrative, entertainment, food and other expenses fall under this heading. Profit centers capture data related to both cost and revenue, showing how much each dollar of profit costs to generate.
