Charts of Accounts in Latin America EXPLAINED! A guide for NetSuite users

Let’s dig to the center of the core! 

‘Charts of Accounts’ is an accounting concept. If you have an accounting ERP, you need to use accounts, which are basically codes and names. You can have either a corporate or a local chart of accounts. This last one is normally regulated and mandatory by tax authorities.

In Latin America, local tax authorities for each country design the correct structure, names, types and more for their specific needs.


Stop suffering! Here are some examples so you can understand better

For example, in the case of Mexico and Peru, you have a legal chart of accounts. It means that the companies in those countries have to use that specific account for legal purposes. You will need to present all your accounting using this official format.    

In the case of Brazil and Colombia, it depends on many factors such as the type of configuration that the company has. In this case, can find two different scenarios.


In the first scenario, you can choose to have a multi-booking feature or not in order to have multiple accounting principles in the same instance. In the second scenario you can upload your chart of accounts using that legal name and number. You can have the legal chart of accounts according to the tax authority without needing the Multi-booking feature.
