Once you’ve created your hierarchy, you can build your cost centres.  The Cost Centre page is where your hierarchy structure takes shape. Add cost centres and GL codes to represent the divisions and departments within your organisation.  Depending on your permissions you can move, delete and edit descriptions of the cost centres.
