Chart of accounts in Ax 2012

Until the introduction of AX 2012 a single form was used to create/maintain the ledger accounts, this form was termed as Chart of accounts. The list of accounts was classified based on their nature. With introduction of Ax 2012 there was a change introduced where in the Chart of account form now works as a framework.

Ax 2012 allows us to create/maintain multiple Chart of accounts based on the business/legal requirements. Individual chart of account acts as a placeholder for main accounts and each can be linked to the account structures.

To access the chart of account form: General Ledger –> Setup –> Chart of Accounts –> Chart of Accounts
