SapphireOne Business Accounting Software

SapphireOne a Unique Business Accounting Software

Unless managers and higher executives want to become a professional accredited accountant, the use of accounting software is the most efficient option for them to manage the company’s finances. One of the main reasons that business can run into financial problems is their failure to correctly manage their financial reserves. This can particularly become a problem with the management of their cash reserves. SapphireOne standard reports provide immediate access to both bank balances and cash on hand, at any time with a number of functions in management mode.  No need for accounting degrees, examples are Statement of Position I & II, Month’s Activities, Cash Movements, Accounts Movements, Months Activities for Payroll and a Bank Audit Report.

Excellence in Reporting

SapphireOne stores detailed records of sales and purchases from both customers and vendors. These sales or customer records, can be utilised  in the setting up a Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system. The SapphireOne reporting system will produce reports from almost every field in every table within the data file. It has the ability to drill as far down as necessary into the financial records to produce any reports.

Once these reports have been set up and saved, managers and executives only have to reload the saved reports to view any accounting information they may require at any point in time. Some of these reports are already built into the system and customised reports may be set up and saved as required. These built in reports are in a number of modes within the SapphireOne system. In addition, there are several additional reports available when the Sapphire Web Pack is used.

SapphireOne Accounting Software Structure

Organisation Structure of SapphireOne

The organisation of financial information within SapphireOne is based on traditional double-entry book keeping. The heart of a double-entry book keeping system is the General Ledger, which is composed of a series of accounts called the Chart of Accounts.


SapphireOne provides a comprehensive suite of inventory management functions. Almost all transactions from both sales and purchases within are based on an inventory item of some type.
On the sales side, transactions include quotes – QCI, orders –  OCI, invoices – SCI, client credits –  SCC
On the purchasing side, transactions include requisitions – RVI, orders – OVI, invoices – PVI, vendor credits – PVC
When projects are utilised, additional transactions will be created from the projects mode and are project journals- JGJ and work journals – WGJ.


Once the transactions have been raised in Inventory Mode, the appropriate transactions may be linked and entered into accounts mode.


SapphireOne provides all standard accounting functions for the entry of transactions relating to your clients. These include:

money receipts –MR, client invoices – CI, client credits –CC, client receipts –CR, client journals – CJ


SapphireOne provides all standard accounting procedures for the entry of transactions relating to your suppliers. These include:

money payments –MP, vendor invoices – VI, vendor credits – VC, vendor payments – VP, vendor journals- VJ

Posting a transaction will link the balances to your general ledger account. After posting they may no longer be modified as is normal business practice.

Job Projects

Job Projects are used when consolidation and the tracking of income and expenditure are required.
Transactions that are created by Job projects from sales are: project invoices – JCI and project credit memos – JCC.
They are also created from the purchase side and these range from vendor invoices – VI and vendor credits – VC.
Resources may also be used  in a Job project. and these transactions are given a type code RS. A job projects based transaction are given a type code PR.


SapphireOne Payroll / HR is designed to complement financials. Payroll operates with all the same standards and methods as  SapphireOne financials, including all reporting layouts.
Resource and project time sheets may also be directly imported into SapphireOne’s Payroll / HR system.
Payroll / HR transfers data to financials using a general ledger journal – GJ, or Vendor Invoice- VI.

Single Touch Payroll (STP) is programmed into SapphireOne enabling employers to report salaries, wages, bonuses and pay as you go PAYG directly to the Australian Tax Office.


SapphireOne provides control of depreciation as well as management of purchases and sales of your company’s assets. Asset depreciation is calculated on a company basis and an Australian Taxation Office.  The ATO standard rate is transferred to your general ledger. The software uses a general ledger journal- GJ and vendor invoice – VI, when transferring data to the general ledger.
