Develop a strong compliance strategy by locking transactions once an accounting period ends.  The smart locking mechanism disables changes such as adding a transaction, reversing a transaction, and reprocessing reservations once the accounting period is over. The locked accounting period can be monthly or yearly depending on your preferences and any changes made to locked transactions impact your statements and balances. Follow the steps below to change the locking period. 


The Account Admin and Account Manager are the only team members with permission to lock accounting periods, including reprocessing reservations and reversing or adding transactions after an accounting period has been locked.

Step by step:

  1. Sign in to your Guesty account.

  5. Choose your preferences for how often an accounting period will lock, when the locked period will start and end, and when the transactions will lock after a period ends.
