GoldFinch allows you to import GL Budget and compare it with the actuals.
Prepare GL Budget Template
Before importing the GL Budget, the following records need to be set up in GoldFinch:
GL Ledger with Ledger Type equals Budget
Accounting Variables (Optional)
Use the attached template to prepare the Budget Import Template for the new year.
Save the file as a CSV.

Post/Unpost GL Budget
After the GL Budget is imported, click Post/Unpost to process the records.
The post routine will check GL Budget data for errors first. You must navigate to the GL Budget Entries related list to review and fix errors.
If the GL Budget is successfully posted, GoldFinch will create GL Summaries for the GL Budget Entries.
To correct the GL Budget, you can click Post/Unpost to unpost the GL Budget, update the amounts, and then click Post/Unpost to post the GL Budget again.
Report GL Budget
To report the GL Budget against actuals, a GoldFinch consultant can help set up a Financial Report column for the specific GL Ledger that is linked to the GL Budget.
