Re: US Chart of accounts Adviceby
Thank you for that information.
If I separate the cost center, by using an analytical account, what is the best way 2 display on a report transactions in a specific GL account, sorted by analytical account.
6 = Expenses
400 = Energy and Waste Clean-up
* analytical account*
100 = locationA
200 = locationB
300 = locationC
Ideally I would like something like the Chart of accounts report view. I just be able to see the cost center as another layer. But I do not to have a separate GL account for each cost center.

If you have Analytic Accounting, keep your Chart of Accounts as simple as possible (just the legal requirements and business requirements such as currencies etc.). The chart of accounts should not be (mis)used as a replacement for reports and analytics for reasons of adaptability and flexibility in the longterm. Take one of my notorious maxims ;-) "Accounting is only for the tax authority." In Switzerland for example this would be 6400: *Major Account* 6 = Expenses *Cost Account* 400 = Energy and Waste Clean-up Anything else should be a real Cost/Profit center in Analytical Accounting.
