Revering Locked Year End Process


I posted a payment received this financial year with a date relating to the previous year by mistake. I then locked the previous year. The balance was in debtors at year end but in bank when I locked it.

It won’t let me delete the bank payment received due to it being in a locked period. Please can you point me in the right direction on how to go about unlocking the previous year to fix this?

Many thanks

Hi @Kat1

There are potentially two elements to a year end lock:

  1. The year end journal
  2. The account lock

The first thing to do is to go to Reports >> Journals, find the year end journal and delete it. This will then allow you to go to Account Settings >> All Settings >> Accounts Lock Date, and push this back.

Remember to then re-run the year end tool
