Jobs have planned dates and due dates. Find out why.

So Jobs have 2 important dates:

  • The Due Date of a Job is the date by which the Job must be completed. 

  • The Planned Date of a Job is they date which you want to complete the Job.

So, why the difference? Why have both?

Let's take consider the preparation and submission of annual accounts for a limited company to Companies House:

  • The accounts must normally be submitted within 9 months of the company's accounting reference date.

  • In order to deliver a high quality service you wouldn't want to work on the accounts during the month in which they were do. Instead, you would want to get them done comfortably early especially given that there may be queries and there is the whole approval and sign off process to consider as well.

So let's take the example of a limited company that where you are preparing the accounts for the financial year ended 31 March 2017 and and you would like to get the work done within 3 months of the company's year end:

  • The Due Date of the Job would be 31 December 2017

  • The Planned Date of the Job would be 30 June 2017

With onkho, you can hit all your deadlines....comfortably!
