How do I pull detail reports that correspond to the AR by Accounting Code report?

Overview

Zuora's Standard Accounts Receivable Report (called AR by Accounting Code) is a summary of transactions by accounting code within a specified date range. If you are not using accounting codes on your charges, the accounting code field on this report will be blank. We recommend assigning accounting codes to your product rate plan charges, since this provides better reporting and can help integrate Zuora with your accounting system. Zuora accounting codes map to GL accounts in your accounting system.

This article provides instructions for obtaining reports on Zuora activity for your accounting period close. If you use summarized GL entries for revenue in your accounting system, these reports list the transactions behind the summary totals.

Solution

The AR by Accounting Code report, or AR report, is based on of the transaction date, for example, Invoice Date for Posted Invoices or Payment Date for Successfully Processed Payments. The AR report gives you summarized totals for each transaction type, and you'll be comparing these totals with totals from the detailed reports provided through Z-Reporting, data source exports, or CSV extract files. For this purpose, of course, it is extremely important that you run all your reports with the same date range. 

We list all the options currently available for validating the AR report transaction totals. However, you can choose the option that you prefer. When possible, Zuora recommends using Z-Reporting, because these reports can be saved and re-run without requiring you to re-enter your criteria as you would with data sources. Z-Reporting also saves you from having to filter information from CSV extracts after each download.

Invoice Totals

Option 1: Z-Reporting "Summary of Invoices" Report

Navigation:  Z-Reporting > Reporting  and select this report from the Report List. Run this report using the same date range you used for the AR report. 

Verify that the Invoice Amount With Tax total matches the Invoice total on your AR report. 

Option 2: Invoice Data Sources Report

Go to Z-Reporting > Data Exports > Data Sources and run a report on the Invoice data source.

Filter to include only Posted invoices and extract by Invoice Date using the same date range that you used for the AR report. Once you retrieve the report, sum up the Invoice Amount column to validate that it matches the Invoice total on the AR report.
