I was previously using a very early version of Sage Instant Accounts which now refuses to work and is out of customer support. So I have turned to Quickfile. I need to enter accounts and opening balances manually for the year ending 31/12/2019. As I have very few monthly transactions this is fairly simple, however when I change the year end date to 31/12/2019 I get the message year end must be in the future. Is there a way of altering the system date? Is there another way round this?
The field is actually “Next Year End Date”, which will always be in the future.
If you set it to 31/12/2020, the system will work out your previous year end dates based on this.
Hi Mathew, Thank you for your prompt response, I thought of doing that but was concerned I would enter a lot of data only to find I could not close the previous year. Just to clarify will I be able to enter the data for year commencing 01/01/2019 - 31/12/2019 and carry out the year end for that period before entering this years date. Thanks Geoff
Sorry meant this years data & transactions
The only thing that would prevent you entering transactions is a year end lock, which is added when you run the Year End Tool. Setting the date alone wouldn’t affect this.
If you set it to 31/12/2020 and then go to the year end tool, you should still see the option to run it for 2019, if you haven’t already.
