Startup period before starting business

if you have a startup period before starting business, can this be more than one financial year period you will normally do?

There is no time restriction for entering transactions into Manager during the startup period before you launch your business.

how do you make it happen though? you have your start day after this period or the start date includes the startup? i don’t know how to define it. thank you

The latest version doesn’t include Start date anymore. Start date was a concept for opening balances when you transfer existing business from another accounting system across to Manager.

Upgrade to the latest version which doesn’t ask you to define start date which makes your dilemma basically go away.

The concept of setting up opening balances on the latest version is explained here but it doesn’t apply to you anyway.

ok. thank you Lubos. As far as I understand you simply input everything and then just carry on.
