Make sure that your accounts are in order and reconciled. 

Tags allow LodgeiT to correctly fill tax forms. Tags are not required very often but in cases where an account line item needs to be specially treated (i.e. in case an expense line item in non deductible) tags can help to automate the tax form fill. Especially through the reconcilation section.

Note: LodgeiT auto map and  classify the line items, but we still suggest you to check it through. Though, you only have to do the mapping  once, then on the following year the "tags" are already available. Not unless, you've added a new line item.

Select "Settings", then press "Chart of Accounts"

You may also find "chart of accounts" through "Financials" tab

For Accumulated Depreciation on Motor Vehicle, ?LodgeiT accounts should be thought of as categories. Placeholders for accounts created in the client side accounting software.

Create Motor Vehicle at cost in your client side file and Map all under "Fixed Assets" at cost in LodgeiT. You'll see all your line items in the final SPFR Balance Sheet. Be sure to link your related accounts. i.e. link Motor Vehicle at cost with with Accumulated Depreciation on Motor Vehicle.

In cases of Company "Rental Property" doesn't recognize in the Expenses as "Rental Property Expenses", best to check "Accounts" and classify accordingly.

ie, Map the Rental Income & Expenses, currently this mapping simply excludes the rental income & expenses. Rental property facts MUST still be keyed into the given rental property schedule.
