IMOS - Time Charter Period Journals

Home > Financials > Time Charter Period Journals

Configuration flag CFGEnableTCLeaseAccounting must be enabled, and you must have the Time Charter Period Journals Module Right selected, under Period Closing in Financials.

Expenses are incurred during a Time Charter that need to be transferred from the Balance Sheet. The Time Charter Period Journals form enables you to create Lease Transition Journals and Lease Cost Journals. When you then create Voyage Period Journals, lease line items are included.

For more information about the lease accounting workflow and IFRS 16, see Compliance with IFRS 15 and 16 Regulations.

    • On the Financials menu, under Period Closing, click Time Charter Period Journals.

    • On the TC In or TC Out Lease tab, click


  2. Using the filters, you can create a list of journals that spans across multiple vessels/voyages. You can use multiple filters at the same time.

    • To filter by date, enter a Value Date. All Journal Types across all vessels appear, until that date.
