Year end closing - How to do Year End Closing?

Top  Previous  Next


In AutoCount Accounting, you do not need to do year end closing to continue or move on to new fiscal years. However, you may choose to run Year End Closing for the following reasons:

- to reduce the size of a particular account book (as all old data will be purged from the account book)

- to change current fiscal year



Before Running Year End Closing


1. Backup your existing account book

2. Examine your fiscal year setting (Tools > Manage Fiscal Year)




* Make sure that Start Date and End Date of current Fiscal Year is properly set. Pay particular attention to End Date, be sure that it is the cut off date that you wanted it to be.
