CCH Accounts Production 2024.2 Release Notes

Release Highlights

This release provides a maintenance and compliance update for many entities, including the annual update for Academies for changes in the 2024 Academies Accounts Direction made by the Education and Skills Funding Agency.

User Guides are available in Help here and the earlier Release Notes can be found here.

Prerequisites

Installing CCH Accounts Production 2024.2

This release is installed using the Central Suite Installer. This ensures that all prerequisites are in place and that all the products for which you are licensed are installed in the correct sequence. Click here to learn about the Central Suite Installer.

Note that if you are upgrading from an old release, before 2023.2, then the Accounts Production Database Upgrade is slow as it is loading new iXBRL tags. Loading the iXBRL tags was speeded up for the 2023.2 to 2023.3 upgrade. But earlier upgrades are still slow.

Key changes that apply to multiple packs

Permit alternative descriptions for OCI "losses": The title of the schedule "Statement of other comprehensive income" comes directly from IFRS and FRS 102 and should not vary. However, published financial statements sometimes refer within this statement to other comprehensive expenses or losses (or other phrase), where this applies. The user can now choose to show losses/expenses as such and can specify the wording to be applied. Affects IFRS Ltd and Group; FRS 102 Ltd and Group.

Additional text on management cover page: The user can now add text to the cover page and states that the following pages do not form part of the statutory financial statements. This wording can be amended by the user. Affects IFRS Ltd; FRS 102 Ltd and LLP; FRS 105 Ltd.

Irish taxonomies: Regarding iXBRL tagging of Irish sets of accounts, we have increased the level of auto-tagging and made improvements to the FRS 102 and IFRS formats which are linked to the following taxonomies:

  • IE-FRS-102-DPL-2023-01-01
  • IE-IFRS-DPL-2023-01-01
  • IE-FRS-101-DPL-2023-01-01

Quality Improvements

CCH Accounts Production

ADO 333941 - Error in nominal formula following release 2024.1

The error can appear with even a simple nominal formula like =AP("a,0010"). In the case sent in, it appeared when both a main account and its subaccount had a balance. This is not normally possible, but there were balances on both 9900 and 990001.

ADO 331671 - Opening an accounting period can occasionally be very slow

In the example sent in, it took 6 minutes to open any accounting period. It should just be a second or two.

ADO 330520 - Changes to a parent officer are not copied to the group officer

This happened if the parent officer appeared in more than one period as is usually the case. For instance if you ticked Balance Sheet Signatory on the parent company, it was not copied to the group. Also you could see the error "Violation of PRIMARY KEY constraint 'PK_Officer'. Cannot insert duplicate key in object 'AP.Officer'" going into the group Officers screen.

ADO 334606 - Error deleting an officer if it has no End date

Usually you add an End Date to terminate an officer, but if you have added the wrong officer in error and immediately realise your mistake you will want to press the Delete key to remove it. Following a change in version 2024.1 this gave an error "Object Reference not set to an instance of an Object".

ADO 334464 - Import/Export - After importing a partnership client, the subaccounts for the linked nominals may be incorrect

For instance, on the source database you might have allocated subaccounts 01 and 03 to 2 partners. But after importing to the destination system, the Chart of Accounts shows the correct codes for each partner, but the Linked Nominals screen shows 01 and 02.

ADO 334879 - Import from Software - Remove message recommending Open Integration

This is because Open Integration is now deprecated.

ADO 341697 - Import/Export - On some sites, the Import gives an error

The error can be "A severe error occurred on the current command. The results, if any, should be discarded" or "The given ColumnMapping does not match up with any column in the source or destination". The error prevents all clients being imported at the site. The error seems to be a fault in SQL Server itself, but we have found a way to avoid this issue.

CCH Review and Tag

ADO 332687 When using standalone Review and Tag the error "bus_ReportIncludesDetailedProfitLossStatementTruefalse this tag is not set" was appearing

This error was a side effect of work done in PI24.1 to replace the error "These accounts may contain a DPL".

ADO 312249 Errors occur when filing FRS101 Audited accounts

It was showing an incorrect "Accounts status, audited or unaudited" in Other Data. We have also corrected "Applicable Legislation" to show the Small companies regime.

ADO 290494 - ITS 59571 – FRS102 S1a Accounts filed with Companies House getting "Statement on quality and completeness of information provided to auditors" error.

This error has been fixed for limited charities but can still happen for limited companies.

For small limited accounts this is being caused where accounts for filing with Companies House are produced using the print selection of "Financial Statements for Members" instead of the print selection of "Small Company Reduced Filing".

ADO 334759 Document information incorrectly set for some LLPs.

For some LLP’s the Entity type in Document Information was not being set correctly to LLP (FullAccounts).

ADO 332707 - ITS 68006 - FRS102 Revised audited accounts need both the DateAuditorsReport and DateAuditorsReportOnRevisedAccounts tags

When filing revised audited Accounts both the DateAuditorsReport and the DateAuditorsReportOnRevisedAccounts tags are required by companies house.

The DateAuditorsReportOnRevisedAccounts tag will automatically be placed in OtherData tab.

CCH Working Papers

ADO 335931 - The Print Preview fails to display a Lead Schedule if you are not in the latest period

The reports shows with Invalid Formula messages.

The submission database was updated in 2020.3 to include the client code from CCH Central to enable users to report on filings by client code.
This code is obtained by matching the company name within the CCH iXBRL Review & Tag file to the database within CCH Central. If, however your client's name in CCH Central does not match the Company name reported within the accounts, the entry will be logged as NA.
Ensure that you client name in CCH Central and the Company name reported in the accounts match. TBC
15/12/2021 61694 Micro Entities set to Full accounts when using reduced filing option.
When accounts produced in CCH Accounts Production for FRS105 Micro entities the option to use reduced filing sets the accounts type in CCH iXBRL Review & Tag as (Full Accounts). This is due to there being no legal form of accounts recognised as filleted so the option defaults to Full.
If you are producing reduced filing accounts for Micro entities to file at Companies House. Leave the entity type as Micro Entities (Full Accounts). Do not change to Small Companies Reduced filing. TBC
25/08/2020 59571 FRS102 Sec1 A small Companies - Full Accounts filing throws an error “Document missing mandatory tag Statement on quality and completeness of information provided to auditors" is reported when Customers try to file an FRS102 Sec1A Full accounts to Companies House. The majority of the FRS102 Sec1A Small Companies file Small company reduced filing version, there is nothing to prevent filing of a full accounts to CCH. The entity type is set to full in error and this causes the error. The error can be ignored, and accounts filed. To prevent the error, change the entity type in document information to Small Companies Reduced filing. If after making this change, another exception on Applicable Legislation appears, you need to add this tag in other data and select Small Companies Regime. Resolved
01/10/2020 60609 Charity FRS 102 -Filing exception on Directors responsibilities note from balance sheet for charitable companies
The paragraph on directors’ responsibilities on the balance sheet is not switching the word items #wd18 and #wd3 for charitable companies where a single director is marked as the balance sheet signatory. It is not switching to the singular term 'acknowledge' and 'his/her ' from 'acknowledges' and 'their'. This causes a fatal 9999 error in CCH IXBRL Review & Tag when filing to Companies House.
This is an issue in CCH Accounts Production but CCH iXBRL Review & Tag users need to be aware.
Workaround -Update/edit the tag in review and tag to the correct wording and submit. When editing it is good practice to edit the content, copy to a note pad and then copy back and apply the tag.

Our current Notable issues list is available from Customer Communities on UserDocs.

CCH Accounts Production

IFRS master pack 42 - Income statement - Duplication of continuing activities message (fixed in the next release)

Where OCI exists and is shown as part of the Income statement, the sentences about continuing activities and pages forming the financial statements (where these are active) are duplicated. The solution  is to make the page local and suppress or delete the rows on the OCI tab.

IFRS master pack 42 - Impairments note - Page break (fixed in the next release)

There is a page break on row 36. The solution is to make the note local and click on the orange dot in the PB column at the left of the format, removing the dot and the page break.

Various packs - ROI accountant's report - CPA (fixed in the next release)

The CPA withdrew its technical bulletin M14 in June 2024 and accountants' reports for compilation engagements signed from 1 June 2014 should instead now refer to ISRS 4410. The solution is to edit the relevant paragraph in the statutory database.

237416 - Transferring fixed assets from CCH Accounts Production to CCH Corporation Tax for IFRS

The link from CCH Accounts Production  to CCH Corporation Tax for Tangible Fixed Assets does not work for IFRS clients.

The data must be entered manually in CCH Corporation Tax.

Unable to travel images

Any images stored in the Image Library will not be available in the travelled database.

Unable to load accounting period if server data format is MM/DD/YY

An issue has been identified that prevents CCH Accounts Production from loading the Accounting Period if the date format in your environment is not dd/mm/yyyy. There is no solution to this at present, other than to amend your Date/Time settings in Windows.

206581 - FRS 102 – Countries that are incorporated in region 3

We have an issue with the Directors Report and Investment Property note not printing correctly. The majority of users are unaffected as accounting periods incorporated in England and Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland are all set to region 1. Republic or Ireland and Eire are set to region 2. Other countries fall into region 3 and there may be a format issue caused by the print condition or row conditions incorrectly testing on either region 1 or region 2.

234971 – Text entered into paragraph is more than one page in length

We have an issue where text entered into a paragraph node in the statutory database does not print correctly if it is more than one A4 page in length.  The bottom of the text ‘falls off’ the A4 page and is not continued on the following A4 page. The workaround is to split the text across two or more nodes, or if that is not possible, enter the text directly into the format cell and make the format local.
