Sage 300 ERP Closing Procedures Checklists

Posted by Kim Protosow on Fri, Dec 20, 2013

Year end processing in Sage 300 ERP (formerly “Accpac”) is designed to be fairly straight-forward. But understanding how to coordinate the process within each of the modules and in the proper sequence is important.  It also requires a bit of judgment based on your specific system configuration and business processes.  In this section, we provide a checklist for general period end and year end closing processes.

Period End Processing

Before you can begin year end processing, you’ll need to run through your period end processes first.  So here’s a checklist of typical period end procedures.  Make sure you’ve finished the typical daily procedures in all ledgers, then proceed with these period end processes: 

Order Entry

        Print Order Action and Aged Orders reports

        Print Sales History and Sales Statistics reports

Purchase Orders

        Print Purchase Order Action, Aged Purchase Orders, and Shippable Backorders reports

        For Canadian Payroll, print and file government reports, such as records of employment

        Print transaction listings and other reports you require
