This procedure can be used for the following situations:
You want to change the number of accounting periods per year or modify the fiscal year setup.
You want to change your company’s accounting method from cash to accrual accounting or vice versa.
Note: You cannot transfer the journal entries from a cash-basis company to an accrual-based company or vice versa. The only items you can transfer are the list items, such as customers, vendors, chart of accounts, and so on.
You want to start over and transfer existing data from one Sage 50 company to another.
