Sage 200 Retrospective Aged Debtors & Creditors

A question that we frequently get asked is how to run a retrospective aged debtors & creditors report in Sage 200 – This blog will show you how.

How do I do this?

  • Bring up the Sales Ageing Report as normal: Sales > Reports > Credit Control > Aged Debtors
  • Without changing any other criteria, you need to tick the box called “Retrospective”. And then select the date that you want the report to run at in “Base Date For Ageing”.
  • In the above example the date is set to 31st March 2022, so by selecting retrospective, this will run a report as if it had been run on 31st March 2022. This means it will only include transactions, invoices, credits, receipts etc. plus allocations dated before 31st March 2022.
  • If the Aged Debtors report does not equal your expected value, for example agreeing to the nominal, then it is possible that that you have a payment or receipt date that is different to the allocation date of the receipt or payment. Note: This is especially common on the Purchase Ledger if a payment run is made prior to a month end and the transaction is dated for the next month, so there is reconciliation difference of that amount.
  • Allocation dates are shown at the top of the payment/receipt allocation screens, picture below:
