I'm self studying from home using the Kaplan books, and all my previous accountancy work has been using Sage Line 100 which I don't think even exists anymore!
Anyway, I'm working through the text book with both Solar and Sage One to see which I like best and I am having problems with both.
Solar - I'm finding so many functions that are mentioned in the book are missing, ie not being able to allocate customer/supplier account codes, not being able to set up product lines (set up a new nominal code for each one I'm assuming?),
Sage One - I'm preferring this but I'm stuck at entering opening balances. Text book says to use financial year dates of 1 Jan - 31 Dec 2013 and to use 31 Dec 13 as the dates for opening balances, however Sage One will only allow opening balance dates prior to current financial year, so 31 Dec 2012. Surely that would be marked as incorrect in the exam if I entered the balances in the previous financial year?
Also, it won't let me start afresh and change the company name which I assume I'd need to do for the ezam?
Could anyone who has done or doing B3 give me some pointers re the above issues, or am I overthinking things which won't lose me marks?
Thanks in advance!
