Using of these above two accounts will help us in clearing the balances and adjustments to those respective clearing accounts so that the GR/IR account will be zero balance and the balances will appear in respective reconciliation accounts accordingly the balances will be carried forwarded to next fiscal year.

Other than that, it is important to know the following:

Unit Testing

When you test every single document is called unit testing.

String Testing

One transaction full activity is called string testing . For example Vendor invoice, goods received and vendor payment.

Integration Testing

It is purely with other modules and we have to check whether the FI testing is working with other related modules or not.

Regression Testing

Testing for whole database. Bring all the data into another server and do the testing is called regression.


When we test any particular document with the user and if it is ok immediately we have to take the signature on the document, which is signed off and can be forwarded to the immediate boss. There are some steps to be followed when we go for user acceptance testing.

Transaction u2013 Script Writing u2013 Expected Results u2013 Compare with Actual Results

TPR (Transaction Problem Reporting)

While doing the user acceptance testing if we get any problems then there are some methodologies to be followed according to the companyu2019s policy and normally as a tester we always need to write on Test Script itself.

Hope this helps you.
