Account Trees in Calxa provide a truly flexible structure for mapping your chart of accounts from your accounting system to suit many different reporting requirements. You can regroup, rearrange and summarise your accounts, plus restructure the Profit and Loss and Balance Sheet layouts.

In this help article we look specifically at creating a new tree but we have the following related articles about Account Trees.

  1. To navigate to Account Trees go to:
    Settings -> Organisation Settings -> Account Trees
    Reports -> Report Tools -> Account Trees

  2. Select your organisation from the Selected Organisation dropdown.

This method creates a new tree with no accounts allocated allowing you to build a new structure from scratch. It does create the most common Category structure so you can then add the Headers you need.

Copy an Account Tree

This method takes a tree you have already created and copies it. You can copy to all or any of the organisations in your workspace. If you are using a tree for multi-org consolidation this allows you to create the tree once and then copy to all companies. See Consolidate Multiple Organisations for more details on consolidated reporting.

  1. First select the tree you would like to copy and then click the settings cog to open the drop down menu.
