Quality Improvements 

CCH Accounts ProductionEdit section

ADO 274514 - View Transactions > List Report includes draft transactions

Draft transactions are now excluded as on the View Transactions screen.

ADO 277791 - Import/Export - Importing a balance with 14 digits before the decimal point errors

The error was: "The given value of type SqlDecimal from the data source cannot be converted to type decimal of the specified target column".

ADO 277866 - Saving a page to disk and reloading it loses the format code and condition

Pages saved to disk will now include the up to date format code and condition. Previously they would include an out of date version if the format code or condition had been edited.

ADO 281378 - Attachment not printing if a page is opened too quickly

If a user opens a format page before the Financial Statements screen has finished loading, then the attachments of the opened page are not recognised. This means that previewing the page does not show the attachments. But also, if the user exits the format page and previews the full set of accounts, then the attachments are missing, usually showing as a gap in the accounts, e.g. for the Balance Sheet signatories. If the accounts are passed to Review and Tag, again the attachments are missing which may give rise to exceptions about missing tags. The problem does not go away until the user goes to a different menu option, e.g. the Home screen, and then reopens Financial Statements.

This problem has probably been present for a long time but was not visible because the first page in a limited company collection was the Cover page which loads very quickly. It has only come to light since the Exceptions Report was moved to be the first page as that takes longer to load.

24/12/2020 61704 Companies House submission database showing Client Code as NA
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. TBC
01/12/2017 TBC FRS 105 Audited – reduced filing Companies House Submissions in CCH iXBRL Review & Tag

  For Information only
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.

CCH Working Papers

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

CCH Accounts Production

207516 – Error 49 on upgrade

When logging into Central following a release, the error message “error code 49” is shown.


This indicates that the Central database and the Document Store database are no longer in sync.

Please contact CCH Support for assistance.

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.  CCH will investigate providing this ability in a future release.

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.
