As a regular Reckon Accounts User, I have designed a Chart of Accounts in what I call my "Blank Reckon File". I have set up and linked the payroll items to the Liability Accounts that I prefer and Asset Accounts the way that I like them. Additionally I have linked the GST codes to GST Collected & GST Payable so I can see each separated in the Balance Sheet. My Income and Expenses are all pre-linked to the correct codes as well.
Each time I need to create a new file I copy and paste my "Blank Reckon File" and rename to new Company Name.
I have been doing this for over 8 years and just upgrade it each year. I can even upload to Hosted for new Hosted Clients.
I save hours each time I start a new file. Just do it once and you will never have to do it again!
Hope that helps...
