Opening Balance Period

This is a read only property that identifies the earliest reporting period you can use in Calxa.

Last Month in Financial Year

Indicates the financial year end. It is automatically determined from your accounting system. Some reports use your financial year to determine year to date values for example and therefore you may wish to temporarily change the year end period This setting will be reset the next time you sync with your accounting system.

Consolidation Rate

The Consolidation Rate is used for multiple organisation consolidations. It allows you to consolidate organisation files with different currencies and can also be used to consolidate companies with differing levels of ownership. This feature is available for Calxa Premier users. Please see the help note Consolidate Multiple Organisations for more details.

Bank Overdraft Limit

If you have an overdraft facility with your bank you can reflect this in your Cashflow Forecast report by entering the amount of the overdraft in the Bank Overdraft Limit field.

Last Actuals Period

This represents the latest in which you have a complete month of actuals. This will update automatically when you sync with your accounting data to the last complete calendar month. Unless otherwise chosen in report criteria this is the default period where reports will switch from Actual to Forecast and it is also used in the Budget Factory for the same purpose.

Sync Options

What do you want to sync?

The What do you want to Sync? section provides options related to the sync process. By excluding selected data such as business units, budgets or years you may be able to speed up your organisation sync.
