In this chapter, we have focused on planning for the Dynamics GP system setup. We went over the important factors in choosing how many companies to have in Dynamics GP and what to consider when deciding whether to integrate with existing systems or replace them. General Ledger account frameworks and account formats were examined and master record numbering schemes were discussed. We discussed fiscal periods, fiscal years and recommendations for non-calendar fiscal years. Dynamics GP user and security planning and tax setup were reviewed. Additional setup considerations were also outlined. In the next chapter we will discuss planning the infrastructure for your Microsoft Dynamics GP implementation.
