Prepaid Taxes - normally you receive the tax bill in advance of your amortization period. This allows you to set up the amortizable item before the actual amortization period begins. Sometimes you have a situation where the tax bill doesn't come in before you begin the amortization period. Click here to see the solution for the Tardy Tax Bill Dilemma.

Multiple Entities or Companies - if you have several different companies that you are preparing reconciliations for, you may want to set up separate databases for each of those entities. Click here to see how to set up multiple databases and access them if you're a Multiple Entity User.

Period Ends are not Calendar Month Ends - some industries have come up with their own way of identifying accounting periods that is different that the traditional Julian calendar. If you're in one of these industries you will recognize the terms "5 - 4 - 4" or "13 - 4's" or "4 - 5 - 4". Usually your period ends are always the same day of the week - Saturday or Sunday. These "non-traditional" period end dates can easily be handled by RecWizard. To see what you need to do differently, go to the solution for Odd Period Ends.

Changing Reconciliation Types - if you want to change the reconciliation type for an account, review the instructions on the Reconciliation Types page of the tutorial.
