We have just started using workpapers and are wanting to do as much as we can on them. One of the things we were hoping to use them for was for our bi-monthly GSTs. This works well until you are trying to do a client whose previous year's accounts have not been completed and therefore the classic ledger hasn't been rolled.
Is there a way around this?
We have this issue too. Workpapers don't work with AO GL's future periods.
The work around is to create a second ledger & roll it to do the GST in and switch the Workpapers to look at that ledger while doing the GST. Then when the annual work is complete, rollover the original ledger and import the transactions from the other ledger.
This is rather cumbersome and easy to get mixed up. We would prefer it if Workpaper could some how work with future periods.
At present the work around suggested by Kelly Duffy is probably the best way to handle this (thanks for the contribution Kelly). Client Accounting only looks at the "Current Year" balances from AO GL, so there is no way to have Workpapers connect to future periods right. I have added this to our list of candidates for future consideration.
