FAQ: Can I change the expenses code from O00 to E00, so as E is in line with Expenses ?

Answer : You cannot change the order of the classification as it follows the presentation layout of the sequence of the balance sheet and profit & loss. It is hard coded in the system. Classifications determine the position of the accounts in the financial statements.


Note: The classification code is set as A00 (zero, zero) B00 (zero, zero) etc…. not AOO, BOO
