How to Restore an Archived Transaction back to the Previous Year

To restore an archived transaction back to the previous year, follow these steps:

  1. Select Archive > Sales or Purchases > Audit Trial.
  2. Find and select the Sys Ref transaction you need to restore/reverse.
  3. Press the Restore button (make sure to restore all allocated transactions, and not just the transaction you need to reverse).
  4. Once restored, you will find the transaction within the previous year's audit trail, ready for you to de-allocate/reverse.


The restore function only works for transactions which are within the previous financial year.
