Regarding @Tut scenario it only occurs when they try to delete with intend of rectify the mistakes. I have another suggestion for that kind of scenario. There should have been a status as “Inactive” or “Cancelled” so it does not included in the report. This also allows to preserve digital copy of attachments.
Or Can we have a feature where the template can be export with only the listings and company information, chart of account and what not for continuity for the next financial period where the transactions like payments and receipts, Purchase Invoice, Sales Invoice and so on are not included in the exported template?
The reason behind of the request is I literally going through where my previous client came back with audited report different chart of account but the same supplier, customer and banks. after a year. Then, it would be not viable to continue with financial period gap (Bank Reconcilliation issue) on top of different chart of account.
Is time consuming to add back from square one the customer and supplier listing and delete transactions where some of accounts are combined which is different of how I design everything is separate. Like I separate ‘Printing Expenses’ and ‘Stationery Expenses’ while the audited report combined as ‘Printing and Stationery Expenses’.
