Closing Date error when posting bills or invoices to QuickBooks


Description of Issue:

The following error may appear when clicking the Save and Bill button on a Purchase Order or the Receive Items screen; or when posting invoices to QuickBooks:

Error posting to QuickBooks:

An attempt was made to modify a Bill/Invoice with a date that is on or before the closing date of the company. If you are sure you really want to do this, please ask a user with Admin privileges to remove the password for editing transactions on or before to closing date (this setting is in the Account Company Preferences), then try again.

Cause of Error:

A closing date has been set in QuickBooks that is on or after the date of the bill or invoice you are attempting to edit or modify.


There are two ways to resolve this issue. Use either method then try to post the invoice again.

1.Change the date of the transaction you are attempting to modify or post:

Invoice: recall the invoice on the Sales Invoicing screen in ESC. Change the Date field to be after the closing date in QuickBooks. Save the invoice.

Vendor Bill: change the date on the bill being sent to QuickBooks to be after the closing date in QuickBooks.

2.Remove or reset the closing date in QuickBooks:

To do this, go to Edit → Preferences → Accounting → Company Preferences in QuickBooks and click the Set Date/Password button. Remove the date from the closing date field or change it to a date that is before the transaction.
