Step 2: Print Essential Reports

Print the last page of the Inventory Valuation Report

We also recommend running a valuation report to get the value of your inventory after completing your year-end process… Your accountant will thank you!  IMPORTANT!  The Valuation Report lets you see either a detailed or summarized report of the average cost, last cost, and retail value of current on hand inventory. Use this report when you need to declare the value of inventory for tax purposes.  Once you have started the New Year, you cannot go back and run this report. It must be run after all posting and before any new posting.

  2. For REPORT choose

Detail Shows location specific totals

Summary Shows totals only

On the Inventory Make sure that values here are “Qty on hand not equal to 0”.

Price Tab This filter will display all of your positive and negative quantity items and ignore all items that have a quantity value of “0”.

Click on Preview, navigate to the last page, and print only the last page.

Print the Customer Aging Report

If you have the Receivables option that you use for your A/R Customers, then you will also need to print the Customer Aging. The Aging report tells you which customers have a balance. We recommend you run this initially at the beginning of the last fiscal month, so you can determine if any of the balances need to be written off.

The Aging Report is part of the Receivable Option and lets you see either a detailed or summarized report of A/R customer balance information for each A/R customer. This report ages your customer account balances based on the document date or due date, and displays if they have any balances are 30, 60, 90 days overdue.

On the Parameters tab
