Processing End of Month / EOFY Process
The first steps of the EOFY process are the same as your standard End of Month process. Complete these steps as usual until you reach the Files Update process. At this screen, ensure Clear Year to Date (YTD) Data is ticked.
NOTE: you should not do anything here; you are simply checking that Clear Year to Date is ticked
If you run your End of Month process and Files Update prior the 1st April, do not complete another Files Update on 1st April, as this will compromise your history. You have already closed off the month of March. If you closed off before the 1st April, your auditors may require you to create a Current Backup renamed to EOFY 31 March YYYY, complete a successful bank reconciliation including all transactions on your bank statements and print all reports on 1st April.
For further instructions on what to do if you ran your EOM process and Files Update Prior to 1st April call Rockend Support.
