You can either email your backup to us or we can collect the data from your desktop.
You tell us what month and year you want the year to START and we will change it for you.
For most data sets that can be emailed we charge £31
For large data sets where we collect from your desktop we charge £62
Changes as a result
Extended Years: As a result of extending a financial year, the brought forward balance becomes the entire balance for all periods prior to the new year start. You should run all period reports prior to changing the year end as the consolidated amount can not be reported on. (It is possible to run "transactional" reports for any period including earlier periods as all transactions are there. The standard reports use consolidated "bucket" values as a shortcut and these "bucket" values only exist for the 14 fixed reporting periods Brought forward, Months 1 to 12 and Future)
Short Years: As a result of shortening a year the first period will be one or more periods into the year and what had been the brought forward figure may now be spread over earlier period including the brought forward period.
You should backup and keep your backup in a safe place.
If your version allows to creating archives, creating an archive for reference purposes may be useful.
