Locked Period Accounting Management

Modified on Wed, 6 Mar at 1:11 AM

An accounting period is a specific range of time where accounting functions are performed and analysed. Kangarootime does have period accounting and will allow you to define your accounting periods.


Once a period is locked, transactions created that apply to a date within the closed period, will have a period date set to the next open period.


Setting up your locked periods


Navigate to Billing within the Menu and select Settings from the drop down options.


Select the Accounting Period tab.



The first start date is always set to 1/1/2000.  Enter your first Period End Date and then select Close.


Your first locked period will then display in the table below.  The dropdown arrow on the right will display which User closed the period and on what date.


You will also notice that the Period Start Date has now changed to display the day after your first locked period was closed - ready for you to use when you close the next period.



Reporting with Period Accounting


Specific reports in the program will allow you to run them with the Period Accounting reporting on.


On the Reporting Screen



Across from the report, select the Run Report option.


Enter the Centre and date parameters, then switch the Period Accounting option ON.  Select Generate Report.



In the Billing menu area


  • Transactions screen > Run Report
  • Payments screen > Run Report


Select the Run Report option.


Enter the Centre, Account, Payment method and date parameters, then switch the Period Accounting option ON.  Select Run Report.
