There’s no reason to lock the nominal code for transactions in closed VAT periods, only the amounts and dates. Nom codes should only be locked when the accounting period is closed. Otherwise every time an accounts clerk makes an error which isn’t spotted in time, you have to do a journal to get your management accounts to make sense.
You can change the nominal code if you wish, by viewing it in the chart of accounts, and using the Move to a new code
Transactions and invoices are locked themselves however, to prevent changes which could affect VAT returns.
Hope this helps.
