In order to ensure that reconciliations are not adversely affected, periods should be locked after each end of month reconciliation is performed.
This is particularly important after each BAS is completed to ensure that transactions are not entered for prior months and therefore omitted from BAS reporting.
To lock periods:
- Choose Setup from the menu bar
- Choose Preferences
- Select the Security tab
- From the Accounts drop-down list select the bank account for depositing
- Check off with a tick Lock Periods Disallow Entries Up to and Including (system-wide)
- Select the appropriate month that has just been reconciled from the drop-down menu
- Click OK
