Changing date on locked invoice


I have an invoice (#14) dated for this finacial year that I’d like to appear in the 2013/14 FY but is locked as it already appears in a VAT return. Is there any way to do this?


The invoice is locked down to prevent it from being accounted for again in a subsequent VAT return. The only way to unlock it is to rollback the VAT return. Rolling back the VAT return and moving the invoice date may result in a different tax calc. that would need to be adjusted out manually in the following VAT return.

If you want to rollback the VAT return you can do this from the VAT return detail screen.

Thanks Glen. That worked.
