General Recommendations & Tips
Following are a few general recommendations to consider as you begin year end processing in Sage Accpac ERP:
Check Data Retention Settings - The number of years that Sage Accpac is capable of retaining in historical data will vary based on the edition you are running. In addition, each company may be set to retain a fewer years than the maximum depending on your specific settings. So it’s a good idea to double check the settings for all company databases so you don’t lose important data when creating a new fiscal year.
Create a New Fiscal Calendar – Sage Accpac offers tremendous flexibility for entering transactions across fiscal years. Therefore, you can begin entering transactions for the new year without having to close the current year. But you must first create a new fiscal calendar in Common Services before you can begin entering transactions. You can create a new fiscal calendar at any time so it’s a good idea to set it up early so you’re ready to enter new transactions.
Data Management - Year end is a good opportunity to “clean house” and determine whether it makes sense to purge old data you no longer need, create archive databases, or expand your storage capacity. Contact us if you’d like assistance in creating a data maintenance plan.
