ERP Internals/Modules/Bond Manager
Bond Manager keeps track of the enterprise’s bondholders and pays interest on bonds. Only large ERP packages have a Bond Manager module. Normally only a publicly traded company would use this module.
The first group of tables consists of the Bondholder table which contains one record for every bondholder and the Bondholder Contact table which contains one record for every contact at each bondholder. There is at least one contact record for every bondholder and there can be several. The second table is the Transaction table which contains one record for every transaction (issue, sale, interest, adjustment). There is at least one transaction for every bondholder and there can be many.
Bond Manager sends transactions to Bank Reconciliation and General Ledger.
The first type of transaction is the issuing of one or more bonds to a bondholder.
The second type of transaction is the paying of interest to a bondholder.
The third type of transaction is recording the sale of a bond by a bondholder.
The fourth type of transaction is miscellaneous adjustments to the bond.
