SIMS End of Year Procedures for 2019/20

SIMS End of Year Procedures

It’s business as usual for these processes!

With what must be a very different school year than any of us imagined, it’s hard to remember all those jobs you would normally be doing. SBS are releasing the EOY documents slightly earlier than normal, to help you plan time in to carry these out, or alternatively, if you would like SBS to do this for you please use the link below to book a Remote End of Year Service with one of our consultants.

Below you will find 2 different types of the SIMS End of Year Procedures documents; the Summary and the Detailed.

The ‘Summary’ is part checklist and part ‘how to’ and is designed for those of you who are confident in carrying out these tasks, whilst the ‘Detailed’ one goes through everything in minute detail. Nothing has changed this year from last year so it’s business as usual.

This needs to be completed before you get back in September but you CAN start this now. There is no need to wait until the Summer Holidays to be doing this, and with a changed working life you may find you have the quiet time to crack on!
