Accrued Vacation When Promoted

A CPAnywhere user had reported to us that there may be an error in the automatic calculation of accrued vacation. This situation may occur when: 1. the vacation accrual policy is based on the job level and 2. the staff gets promoted with the different set of vacation accrual policy. If you are currently using the Automatic Vacation Accrual function please let us know. We are looking into the problem and trying to find a solution.

The Companies Registry (“CR”) has revised 117 specified forms for the major purposes of:

  • adopt the Business Registration No. as the Unique Business Identifier (“UBI”) of a company,

Import/Export Job Assignments

We have received a request from our user Cheng & Cheng CPA on the ease of entry for addition and amendment of existing jobs using Excel

worksheet.

Instead of make it as an individual project, we have decided to turn this into a standard feature.

That means user will be able to EXPORT the job assignment to a specified Excel worksheet. User can add or amend the content and IMPORT in back to

the system.

The reason is that it is easier for manager to view the entire job assignment from an Excel printout and make correction instead of editing it using the

web-based system based on the speed of the Internet connection.

By doing so, it can combine the ease of working on paper or Excel and still get the benefit of the web-based system by working anywhere.

Multiple Opening of the Same Invoice

A user has reported to us that they have two supervisors trying to approve the same invoice.

Because of the timing difference, it has resulted the confusion in the allocation of invoice number.

For example, the first one approved the invoice, the system allocates invoice number “101”. At just a second, the second supervisor approves the same

invoice, the system allocates invoice number “102” to it.

There is really no financial implication to the two transactions since there is only one invoice got approved.

However, it does result the skipping of the invoice number “101” not being used. We are going to disallow the second approval once the request goes

to the server and the system found out that the invoice has already been approved.

Once we are done with the changes, we will update your system. Thank you very much for all your help!
