The University has a complicated Chart of Accounts and coding can seem daunting and there are two different structures:

  • Research grant /project funded items
  • General Ledger ("Charge Accounts") items

These pages provide guidance and resources to assist you.


Basic structure



U = Entity

ZZ = Dept code

ZZBG = Dept cost centre

AAAA = Source of funds

ERPZ = Transaction codes

0000 = Spare
