Working in a yearly file

It is ordinarily recommended to work in a monthly file. However, for small practices where work in process transactions are not significant and internal control is not considered critical, you many want to set up one period for the entire year. This indicates that you are not following the normal process of opening and closing accounting periods and has the following effects on your Time & Billing file:

  1. Any billed items in the work in process and paid invoices in the accounts receivable will not be cleared.
  2. Editing of time, expenses, and invoices is permitted throughout the year.
