Account constructs

Updated on January 18, 2022

A Pega Accounting account is a unique structure combining four separate and required attributes.

  • Account Type (AccountType) – A four-character alphanumeric value such as GL, DDA, or 3725 that precedes the account number. It categorizes the account, and allows differentiation for display, accounting entries, and reconciliation purposes. In addition, types serve as the data points for the sorting and posting of different types of accounts in the system’s accounting feed file.
  • Account Number (AccountNumber) – A numeric value that follows the account type and defines the account number to which the debit or credit entry is posted.
  • Bank Number (BankNumber) – A four-character alphanumeric value such as 0001 or CA02 that identifies the bank associated with the account number processed by the accounting entry. By requiring a bank number with every financial transaction, Pega supports multi-bank and multi-organizational accounting needs.
  • Account Name (Name) – An alphanumeric value that identifies the account’s owner name.
