MSP's Accounting module has been approved by the NIADA and can utilize the NIADA Chart of Accounts, NABD’s Chart of Accounts, or your own customized Chart of Accounts. It produces complete Financials such as trial balance, balance sheets and income statements.

Company Set-Up

Here you can set up new companies, new bank accounts and close out the year.

  • Multiple companies and multiple bank accounts can be set up.
  • Accounting periods are set up by calendar year or by fiscal year.
  • After closing out the year, you can reopen that year if adjustments need to be made.
  • Security settings can be applied per employee for limited or complete access to the system.
General Ledger

All entries flow into the General Ledger and are processed to produce your financial statements.

  • Journal Entries are passed from your front-end software to IDA, eliminating the time it takes to manually input the information.
  • If necessary, manual journal entries can be posted directly to the General Ledger.
  • You have the capabilities of editing un-posted manual entries and reviewing all types of entries.
  • Chart of Accounts: yours, NABD or NIADA.

This software (MSP) has alleviated so much of the paperwork we had to control. The time we are saving has already paid for the program. The MSP software is extremely user-friendly, thanks to you. The setup was a breeze and the Technical Support staff is very helpful. It has been the best investment we have made in years.
