4. Setup Checklist
When you run Veculim for the first time a few settings need to be set so that
you can begin using Veculim effectively. When you run Veculim for the first time
you'll see the Setup Checklist.
As you complete each step you can click on the check-mark to the left of the step to mark
it as completed. The first step is the Financial Defaults
The key items on this form are the VAT details, and your bank account details (which are used
on Invoices.) Once that is entered click on the OK button to go back to the
check list. You can update settings on this form later on by going to the Setup menu, to the Financial Defaults option.
The next step is the Quote Defaults.
All of the settings on this window govern
various settings which will be applied to your quote. Enter the various
hourly rate and markup values that apply to your business. Also edit the
various text items that will appear on your quotes. You can update this
information later on by going to the Setup menu and choosing Quote Defaults.
The next step on the Checklist is the Accounting year. It is important that you set this correctly, because
it cannot be changed later on.
The purpose of this window is to identify the beginning and end of your
financial year. Most companies run from March to February, but it's not
uncommon to have a year-end in June, or September, or indeed any other month
in the year. Make sure you have the dates correct, then click on the OK
Once you have clicked on OK this option will be disabled on the Checklist,
and the following button (Current Accounting Period) will be enabled.
Click on the Current Accounting Period button to see those settings.
You can change accounting periods later on by either returning to this checklist, or
by using the Accounting Menu, Accounting Calendar option.
