BPA End of Year Guide | Business Software Solutions

The end of the year is always a busy time for restaurant owners. Ensuring all your tax and sales data is in order can be a daunting task. In this guide, we’ll discuss reports that are available to help you to close out your accounting year.

 

1) Un-archiving

Before we start pulling reports, you will want to make sure the system is using all the data for the entire year. BPA is designed to archive sales information after a certain period; this allows the software to run smoothly. Occasionally, if these settings are changed, they will cause inaccurate reports for the entire year. To verify your archive settings go to Restaurant System>Manager Functions>Misc. Definitions. Select the Business System option on the left. In the right, you will see several headings; scan down until you see Data archival.

The business system reports and monthly and yearly sales reports are controlled by the top option – Archive Sales Order Records After ‘XXXX’ days. Most of the restaurant reports will be controlled by the Archive POS Sales Records After ‘XXXX’ days option.
