As the year winds down, we reflect and prepare.
Around this time, there are some financial and configuration tasks you should carry out in your business management software. To help you get off to a smooth start, we’ve compiled a checklist of tasks to consider with screenshots of how they look in Acumatica Cloud ERP.

Account Reconciliations with Subledgers
Make sure that all of your General Ledger accounts are reconciled to the subledgers (i.e. A/R, A/P, Inventory, Clearing Accounts and Bank Reconciliations).
U.S. Form 1099 Reconciliations, Reports and Close 1099 Year
If you process your 1099 forms directly through Acumatica, you’ll want to sure that your Acumatica version supports the 2021 US Federal 1099 Tax form changes. If you are unsure of this, reach out to us. Then, verify your 1099 vendor calculations, create the required reports and close the 1099 year once completed.
System Configuration Changes
If you are considering making any system configuration changes (i.e. – GL Account Classes, Customer Classes, Vendor Classes, Item Classes, etc.), it may be a good time to do this at the beginning of the New Year.
Sales Tax Changes
Verify if there are any sales tax changes that will be going into effect on January 1st in the areas where you are doing business.
Customer and Vendor Price Changes
Often times, Vendor or Customer price changes occur on the 1st day of the New Year. You may want to consider updating these prices in your system to ensure accuracy of your purchase orders and sales orders.
Financial Reporting Changes
Some Financial reports may have been built using specific reporting periods. If so, they may need to be modified for the new fiscal year.
