CNA L&P - How to Correct a Transaction which is dated in a Previous Period

A correction needs to be made to a closed period

 

Option 1

A journal entry can be created to move the transaction from the wrong account to the correct account.

  • You cannot make changes to journal entries, bills, deposits created in a previous period but, you can create a new journal entry using a date in a previous period. If the transaction uses a date of a previous period you may wish to rerun your monthly reports to reflect the change. 

 

Option 2

Have the period reopened and reopen the bank reconciliation (if necessary). Make the correction then reconcile the bank account and re-close the period.

  • If you are part of a diocese you will need to have the diocese reopen the period and the bank reconciliation. Independent churches must contact Support for this service.
  • You may wish to rerun your monthly reports to reflect the change.
