Re: Future Dated AP Vouchers


Re: Future Dated AP Vouchers

There are no stupid questions...we all learn and discover new
tips and techniques everyday.

We typically have about 2000 checks to print and deliver at the
beginning of January every year. In order to have that many
non-routine vouchers entered and ready to produce checks we do
exactly what you are asking. We enter the vouchers with a G/L
date of January 1 of the next year. I'm not sure I would want the
Batch date to be anything other than the system date (for audit and
tracking purposes).

The only thing you may need to check is that your system set-up allows
for posting to a future period.
