Adjusting period on posted transactions

Do not ask me how this happened but I've just found a whole lot of transactions posted to the wrong period. I think I can change these (many at a time) in the Advanced Replacement area but can't figure out how to type in the correct period. I've selected Sales invoices from a specific month. Then fr...

Moneyworks gold with iCloud Drive or Google Drive?

Anyone tried it? Do either allow for simultaneous collaboration? Would make a huge difference to me if I could work on bookkeeping from home while my husband uses MW at his office. Dropbox I think won't do it as only one of us can use it at a time.

Re: Set-off transactions

Make the invoice for the full amount. Then make a credit note for the customer for the amount of the interest you owe and put it to the interest expense account. Then when the customer pays, you will pick up both the invoice and the credit note when applying the payment.

Re: How do I create this report...

Go into the Trial Balance and show movements. You can definitely specify date range but you can't do it for just one account - it will show you all your accounts. But it will give you opening and closing balances, activity, and debits and credits. Will also show you every entry made. If you don't ne...

Re: Need help changing Overdue Letter

Almost perfect - gives me a gap between the city name and the comma afterwards - but that's not a big deal; the city & province are now lined up as I wanted. Thank you!

Need help changing Overdue Letter

I am very new to the Forms Editor and I don't know a lot of the lingo. I would like to make a few alterations to the Statement Overdue Letter. I have successfully added the province and postal code to the debtor's address. However, the province and postal code are each on their own line. Ideally I w...

Re: Customer Pays a Written Off Invoice

Not sure exactly what you mean by "writing off the invoice". You shouldn't reverse the invoice; the sale was still made. Instead, you write off the payment owing by making it a bad debt (Bad Debts would be an expense account). I think the way we've done it was to make a credit note for the...

Re: HST(GST) Report

Not sure which province you are in, but I assume it's one where you don't pay a Harmonized Sales tax. If so, it's likely only showing the GST because that's the only one you pay to the government and can take input credits against. Not sure if there is a separate PST report that can be run, but to t...

Re: Back to PST in BC

Is it possible to change all necessary customers to a new tax code at once in MW Gold 5? We are in ONtario but have customers in BC and PEI whose tax codes need to be changed. I can isolate each province by using the find command, but I don't see any option to replace the tax code. I could export to...

Dropbox with MW Gold 5 and multiusers

My husband uses MW Gold 5 at his business, main copy on one computer which is used by one staff member, and 3 "client" computers who log into the main one. I work from home occasionally for his business. This involves backing up the data file onto a stick/flash drive, bringing it home, I r...

Re: MWG Gold Access - 1 user but multiple computers?

We transfer the original file, just copy it to and from the stick (flash drive). Our Macs are using OSX 10.5.8 and 10.6.2 so there are no compatibility issues there.

Debit to the appropriate asset or expense account, credit to either equity or shareholder's loan or something similar, depending on whether the business will be a sole proprietorship or a corporation.

Using MW Gold 5 on a Mac. We are using a shared database, that is, one computer on the local network has the data file and the other 3 log in to it. On one particular client computer, the date for all reports, invoices, etc. is stuck at January 5 (not sure the year; I'm not at that location generall...

Re: new business: private expenses with journals- correct GS

Enter the invoices as unpaid invoices. That should allow you to account properly for the GST. Set up a bank account as "personal bank" or something like that, something to set it aside from your regular business account, and pay the invoices from there. Even if you don't pay yourself back,...

Re: Start over?

I would think it would be easier just to start a new data file? Then just start entering your info as if you hadn't done anything yet.
