Creating Budget for Next Fiscal Year in Current Fiscal Year

To create a budget for the next fiscal year while still in the current fiscal year, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Administration/Setup section.
  2. By default, the current fiscal year will be displayed as the budget year.
  3. When you reach the end of the current fiscal year and want to start planning for the next fiscal year, change the budget year to the desired future fiscal year.
  4. Once you have changed the budget year, navigate to the Budget module.
  5. You can now enter the budget for the next fiscal year, using the updated budget year.
  6. If needed, you can toggle back and forth between the current year and the next fiscal year as you work on the budget for each respective period.

By allowing the flexibility to adjust the budget year, RunPTO enables you to effectively plan and manage your finances for both the current and future fiscal years within a single platform.
