Kuali Financials relies on a variety of Chart of Accounts (COA) tables to function. These tables define the attributes and values used by the system to validate transactions. They also control the often complex relationships between elements in the Chart of Accounts that must be leveraged for internal and external reporting. For example, tables store basic information such as the sub-fund groups to which new accounts may be assigned and the calendar month that correlates to the first month of your institution's fiscal year. This type of flexibility is one of the features that make Financials a highly configurable application.

This guide presents information and instructions for viewing records in the COA tables and using maintenance documents to maintain these tables.
