New Period

The system will automatically extract closing balances from one period into the next when a new period for an existing portfolio is first opened.

This facility is provided for situations where you have started work on a year and then find you need to make changes to an earlier year that will affect the opening balance position in the later year.

For example, if you are working on the 2008/09 year and find that there were a number of acquisitions omitted from 2007/08 then you would enter the missing transactions into 2007/08, process the 2007/08 period then select this facility to recalculate the opening balances for the 2008/09 period.
