Opening balance date

Hi I just started using MYOB for my school's project. 

I am supposed to set the financial year to be 2024 and opening balance date to be July 2023. But I accidentally created a new financial year and now the financial year is 1 Jul 2023 to 30 Jun 2024 but the opening balance date is 1 Jul 2022. 

Anyway I can change the opening balance date back to Jul 2023?

Thank you

    It's great to have you in the Community Forum!

     

    Thank you for your post. You can indeed change the opening balance month, but not the year, in business settings. The conversion date is related to the opening balance date; this date is the point where you have chosen to start entering information into the MYOB file. Also, your account opening balances are directly related to the opening balance date specified in your business settings.

     

    I highly recommend seeking assistance from your accounting advisor when making any changes to this.

     

    Feel free to reply if you have any other queries. I would also recommend getting in touch through our online help center, MOCA, if you still need immediate assistance for this.
