Notes

  • The year that you choose as the Tax Year in Onvio Workpapers or Trial Balance determines the year for the tax groupings schedule on the project's Groupings tab.
  • Only trial balance data uses the period dates on the Accounting tab (accounts and balances). Project setup uses the Fiscal year to calculate the due date.
  • Onvio determines the default dates based on the current fiscal year end date and the specified period frequency.
  • Duplicate fiscal year end dates are not allowed in the same project.
  • Fiscal year end dates must be sequential with no skipped years.
  • Period dates must be sequential with no skipped dates.
  • If you choose a monthly, quarterly, or semi-annual period frequency and the current fiscal year end date falls on a calendar month end, then the period end date will be the calendar month end. If not, the period end date will be on the same date for each period.
  • If you choose a weekly or 13-period frequency, the period end dates are determined by using 7-day weeks, whether or not the current period end date falls on a calendar month end.
