Change accounting method from encumbrance accrual to standard accrual
We want to change accounting method from encumbrance accrual to standard accrual. How it’s possible.  
Thanks given by:
- All encumbered Requisition should be closed

- All encumbered Purchase Orders and Agreements should be closed

- All relevant Invoices should be processed either cancelled or paid.

- Any cycle from procure to pay should not be open.

- Validate Subledger Accounting Definition before and after change.

- Also consult Oracle methodology

Thanks Khan,
Is there any impact by changing this?

Hi Gopal,

I didn't experience such business where Accounting Method was changed from encumbrance to accrual but I shared my understanding for maximum things to be checked before execution of this change.

- One more thing, it is also world wide business practice that such changes are made at the Beginning of and Accounting Year, the most appropriate business practice.

- I don't see any major impact, but as it is very major change, a policy level change, please consult with Oracle Documentation as well, if possibly available.

-If you need any area to share and discuss please reply. Thanks
