Transaction types that may lead to issues

Wherever possible we try to deliver the conversion with full transactional history as promised. On occasions, if the following transaction types occur extensively we may only be able to provide a service with no or reduced history. In some instances it may prevent us from being able to complete the conversion at all. If this occurs we will endeavor to advise you as soon as possible.

Manual journals to control accounts – Xero does not allow journals to control accounts. Where we encounter these transactions we use the conversion clearing account to replicate these journals in Xero. However extensive use of journalling to control accounts is outside the scope of our automated service and we will advise if we encounter this in your file and the options available.
Tracked inventory – Xero does not manage tracked inventory the same way as Reckon does. We use monthly manual journals to balance these transactions out. However if we encounter a large volume of complex tracked inventory transactions it falls outside the automated service. We will advise if we encounter this in your file and the options available.
Multiple Accounts Receivable or Payable Accounts – Review your chart of accounts to see if there are multiple Accounts Receivable or Payable accounts. Xero only allows for one system Account for each Accounts Receivable / Accounts Payable. If there are many, or complex, AR / AP accounts in the Reckon file we will not be able to complete the conversion.
