Similar to: Periodic Accrual for Loans financial institutions will want to recognize expenses/incomes accrued on deposit product accounts too.
Today, deposit products do not support accrual accounting. This spec is to enhance the accrual accounting in Mifos to support periodic accrual of expenses/incomes on deposit accounts too.
Deposit product expenses: Interest to be paid on deposit accounts
Deposit product incomes: fees, interest on overdrafts
The organization may
a) recognize income/expenses periodically (as specified as a configuration - the same as what is specified at: Periodic Accrual for Loans):
b) recognize income/expenses as on a particular date (which will be manually specified when invoking the accrual job).
