Financial Reports - Fiscal Year Close Report

The Fiscal Year Close Report shows the open and close requests for your business for a specific fiscal year.

What is closing out a fiscal year?

Closing out a fiscal year is the act of creating year-end accounting entries for the selected fiscal year. This will essentially close your business' financials for that year and carry over balances from the previous year to the next. This is done to create the proper balances in all of the corresponding financial reports. Closing a fiscal year will prevent any additional accounting entries to be made for that year, so as to preserve its financial integrity.
