Accounting information

Accounting information

  • Start of the first accounting year: the date when you want to start your accounting in EZYcount.
  • End of the accounting year: The date of the end of the accounting year of the company. Usually this is the 31.12. If you are not sure, ask your trustee.
  • Base currency: This is your company’s main currency. You can still book documents in other currency, you will have to calculate manually the difference. For example, if you make your accounting in CHF and you buy in Germany a table for €300.- and the € change to CHF is 1.15; this means you will book in your accounting 300 * 1.15 = CHF345.-


2) Confirm the information by clicking on “Save and continue”
