Symptom

You are receiving the below error message when attempting to publish an invoice.

You cannot record entries prior to your Accounts Start Date of DD/MM/YYYY.

Applies To

  • Purchase/Sales invoices.

  • Companies that are integrated with accounting software.

Cause

This error message is thrown when you are trying to publish an invoice that is dated as prior to the date of your accounts software's setup.

Resolution

To clear this error, you will need to do the following:

  1. Unpublish the invoice.

  2. Change the date of the invoice to a date after your accounts software was set up.

  3. Republish the invoice.

Please note: If that means the date will be incorrect when it is then published to your accounts software, you can amend it in the software afterwards.
