About the GL Fiscal Years Form

Use the GL Fiscal Years form to specify the beginning and ending months for this company’s fiscal years.

You will not be able to post transactions to a month until a fiscal year has been set up that includes the month.

Requiring that fiscal years be set up in this form allows changes to fiscal years to be made easily and without conversions. If this is needed, merely set up the short year with its appropriate beginning and ending months and otherwise treat it the same as any fiscal year.

Fiscal years may not overlap and cannot contain more than 12 months. However, as noted above, a fiscal year can contain fewer than 12 months.
