✅ Year End Scribe Checks
1. Ensure your cost codes have the correct Type allocated - this allows Scribe to correctly populate your annual return figures. Click here for guidance on checking your Types and how to amend if needed.
2. Ensure your prior year annual return figures are feeding into the left hand column of your 22/23 AGAR. If it is your first year using Scribe, you will need to Restate your prior year figures. If it is not your first year, you will need to copy your figures forward - see a short tutorial here.
3. For those working in Income & Expenditure, run 'Calculate'. If a red error appears, you will need to identify and resolve the discrepancy. See a useful guide here on why your balance sheet might not balance.
🤝 Moving from R&P to I&E
If your council needs to move to the Income & Expenditure approach, because they have exceeded the £200,000 threshold for 3 consecutive years, you will need to restate your prior year to I&E also.
This year our Head Accountant, Hannah, provided a live training session for anyone needing to move from R&P to I&E. The recording can be viewed below.
