Number of reporting dates (financial periods) for which
you can enter transactions and view reports. Usually the number 12 for
each calendar month in a financial year are used.|
1 month or 6 months are usually used for small businesses such as clubs, where the number of transactions is minimal.
|Start Date||The starting date of your financial year.|
|Post to Last Year?||If this box is not ticked, you will not be enabled to post any transactions, budgets, etc. to the financial year preceding the financial year entered in the start date field.|
|Open for Posting?||If this box is not ticked, you will not be enabled to post any transactions, budgets, etc. to the financial period, which ends on the specified Ends on field.|
Should you select any other number of periods, 13 or less than 12, the Reporting Dates screen will change to display only the number of financial periods entered. You may then change the description (calendar months - January to December) to suit your requirements. These descriptions will be displayed on the Periods (This Year and Last Year) search or lookup facility as well as on reports.
For the purposes of the this Help File, dd/MM/yyyy (e.g. 31/03/2005) is used as the short date style. You may change or set the system date style or format to display the short date style for your requirements on the screens, reports and documents in TurboCASH.
