To ensure completeness of reported liabilities at year end, a useful test is a subsequent search for unrecorded liabilities. Within DataShare, you can complete the search for unrecorded liabilities using the drill down function within Accounts Payable to see payment activity subsequent to year end.
To access, click on "Payables Ledger" on the left hand side of DataShare portal to expand and select "Payables Ledger Control".
Change the date query box to include subsequent months after the audit. For example, add January 2019 for an audit period of January - December 2018.
Once the date is updated now click on the subsequent month under 'Date'. In this example click on January 2019.
Click on 'Cash' at the top of the report to show all payments for the month selected.
Finally, choose the appropriate payments for testing.
