Limitation & Precaution
- No support for opening balance with foreign currency.
- This is because UBS have two posting (1 local, 1 foreign) for foreign currency transaction and sometimes one of the posting might be missing.
- This is to avoid system from auto-delete AR/AP opening balance when importing Price History with same document number.

Import Opening Balance
Year End Closing at UBS
- Before importing Opening Balance, login into UBS and perform the following steps:-
- Old Version = Go to Housekeeping | Run Setup | General Setting (check when is the accounting period) then insert " Closing Period".
- Sage UBS = Go to Housekeeping | Setup | General Setup (check when is the accounting period) then insert " Closing Period".
Scenario 1 : In UBS this accounting year = 01/01/2015 to 31/12/2015 if you want to cut off until 31/12/2015, so closing period you have to insert 12. Scenario 2 : In UBS this accounting year = 01/01/2015 to 31/12/2015 if you want to cut off until 30/06/2015, so closing period you have to insert 6.
We strongly recommend that direct use the year end database to import instead of re-do the year end cut off at UBS.
