Sales invoice with different accrual date


Is there a way to enter an invoice with an invoice date in the current financial year but an accrual date in the next year?


Hi @NickX

There’s only a way to enter one date for an invoice unfortunately. You could certainly journal this (e.g. reverse the nominal entries and redo them on a chosen date), but I would check with an accountant first.


I’d just do it with an auto-reversing journal - create a journal dated the same as the invoice to credit the relevant purchase code and debit prepayments, and set it to auto-reverse on the first day of the next accounting year.


I thought a journal might be the only way. Thanks.
