You decide when to export old data. Transactions update your accounts as they are entered. There are no "end of period processes" or "roll overs" in CAPITAL, so there is no extra work managing the system at the end of the month.
Users can work in an unlimited number of periods simultaneously, and transactions may be entered and edited for any day of the month or year and back or forward dated as required (subject to the security restrictions that are put in place for each user).
Trading periods may range from C.O.D. to 999 days per account and terms may vary for each transaction. Accounts may be aged by calendar month, terms or even invoice due date. Head Office accounting (central billing) and foreign currency accounting is fully supported.
Transactions flow smoothly through the CAPITAL system. For example, a set of sales orders can automatically generate the required purchase orders, and purchase deliveries can be moved to their applicable job cards.
