There might be times when you need to enter adjustments for the last financial year. If you've already closed that year, you can still make changes by rolling back the financial year.

This means you can add new transactions for the previous year, and reverse existing transactions. But you can't edit or delete transactions dated in the year you have rolled back to.

You should speak to your accountant or bookkeeper before doing this. Making changes to a period you have already prepared reports for could have compliance implications.

For example, say your current financial year is 2017. If you need to enter an adjustment for the 2016 financial year, you will need to roll back the year. Once you've recorded the adjustment, you can close the 2016 financial year again.

To roll back the last financial year, go to the File menu > Close a Year > Roll Back a Financial Year. An assistant appears that will step you through the process.

Can't see the roll back option? Maybe you're using an old version of AccountRight. This feature was added to AccountRight 2015.1.

If the option is in the File menu, but you can't select it, it means that you've already rolled back the financial year, you've never closed a financial year in this company file or you don't have the required user access.
