Aging periods

Is it possible to change from the 30, 60, 90 etc day periods to a calendar month period for debtors and creditors?

    Why is it only on the age debtors and creditors?

    The statements now give a blank box against each month, whereas they used to show the 30 60 90 breakdown. This is 2 steps forward and 1 back

    Hi there! We appreciate all your feedback and we're happy to let you know that you can now choose to see the age of your unpaid invoices by calendar month rather than by the number of days. Transactions show on Aged Debt and Aged Credit reports based on the month of the invoice date. For example, if today's date is 10 July, invoices dated anytime in July show in the Current column, invoices dated anytime in June show in the 1 Month column.

    Simply go to your record and transactions settings to set your new defaults, and let us know if we have solved your problem!

    will be great. As I said , this is so important for what I am guessing is effecting many users. It is coming 5 years too late for me to enjoy and use it as I am about to partially retire if all goes to plan :)) regards Mark

    1000% agree, this is so detrimental to a business that works on 30 days month end credit terms. The debtors list is essentially useless without a calendar month period. Definitely a huge oversight from Sage as this previously worked so well in 50 Accounts.

    Totally agree with Mark.

    Has any one on the technical team worked out where the 5 missing days go? :-)

    I have been trying to get this changed for the last three years! For me this is the most annoying function missing from sage business cloud as of 29/12/2020.

    Having traded for the last 40 + years, I have never had a SINGLE supplier use 30,60,90 days, always monthly. Even the old TAS books used to have the option of both ways. I hope it is coming soon, regards mark fish.

    This would be good then it wouldnt change daily - It would also be benificial to Age according to due date as opposed to invoice date, that was it would stay current until it was actually overdue
