Period Control allows you ‘Close’ or ‘Lock’ any of the Books for any or all months. This will prevent anyone from Adding, Changing or Deleting any entry for that Month in that Book.
This facility is particularly recommended when you keep company data from previous years. The ‘Close All’ option can be used to protect all books and prevent someone from inadvertently adding or changing data in a closed year.
It is also useful to ensure that after calculating and submitting a VAT Return or extracting periodic accounts for management purposes, changes or additions cannot be made accidentally.
To provide added security for Period Control, access to it can be controlled by the System Setup Password.
