End of year processing

Strictly speaking Retail Business has no end of year processing to carry out.  However your accountant may wish you to send them data that enables them to know what you were billed for, but did not pay until the following year.

In that case, after the end of the financial year, do not enter any data into Retail Business unless it is a payment for such an invoice.  Normal sales using Front Counter can continue as usual.  Once you have done that back up the full system and ship that to your accountant.  (This assumes your accountant has a copy of Retail Business).

If you are using the asset register run the depreciation schedule.  Before you do so make sure all assets purchasing using the Capital Expenditure account have been loaded and that you have allocated the depreciation rate and method to them.

Once you have carried out the above proceed to enter data into Retail Business as usual.
