IRIS Accounts Production

Outstanding Issues

Charity Accounts - CSV Import Error
When support costs are setup in Accounts Production when trying to import a CSV trial balance that contains account codes relevant to the support costs, on the pre-import screen it is forcibly requesting a charitable activity, this is in error.  There is no current work around for this problem and figures will need to be inputted manually. 
This issue is due to be fixed in a future release.

The posting amounts in MyWorkPapers can sometimes differ by a few pence when compared to an earlier import due to rounding. To help alleviate this we have added a way for you to set your own tolerance when re-importing data.
Please contact Support to resolve this issue.

IRIS Personal Tax

Issue resolved in the Spring release (v20.1.0)

Personal Tax crashes when running the paper check list/Schedules of data
Currently within IRIS there are instances where a user is running a paper checklist, or the schedules of data IRIS will crash. This is due to an incorrect ‘From’ date being entered for an individual involvement record. For example, ‘From’ date entered prior to the incorporation of the related company.
Change the ‘from’ date for the individual, ensuring the date falls after the incorporation date of the corresponding company.

IRIS Business Tax

Warning displayed when creating a 1day accounting period for a limited company
Where a period is created which starts and ends on the same date (1-day period), a warning displays stating that the previous accounting period end date is incorrect; where this is not the case.
This issue will be resolved in the Autumn release (v20.3).

IRIS Productivity Suite

Outstanding Issues

Unable to post Invoice with 10+ jobs in the Ad hoc posting screen
When posting an invoice through the ad-hoc posting screen with 10+ jobs, the following error appears when clicking OK:

Software Detected Error
Internal Inconsistency
Module TFDM709.CPP 1000
Logical line 1103
No further information

Users should use the On screen posting screen to raise an invoice.
Part of this issue has been fixed in v19.3.2.
However, due to constraints of the database, adding more than 10+ jobs has marked as a future enhancement.
