Unbalanced balance sheet

our accountants prepared our 2018 year end and everything balanced perfectly but unfortunaterly the year end close was not done until June 2019 and now the balance sheet does not balance. something has happened to the ledgers before close. is there anyway we can open the 2018 year and take a look safely?

Re: Unbalanced balance sheet

Hi @meldon


Thank you for posting on the Community Forum.


The best way to open the year 2018 would be to restore the backup file locally to your computer. To do this,

  • Start AccountRight and in the Welcomewindow that appears, click Restore a backup file.
  • Click Browse and select the backup file you want to restore.
  • Select the option to restore the company file in an AccountRight library.
  • Rename the restored company file’s name if required.
  • Click Restore to complete the restore.

This process would create a copy of 2018 year in your Account right library without affecting your current data file.
