How do I close the books at the end of the fiscal year?

Since books are not automatically closed at the end of each fiscal year, you can use the below options to manage your books:
  • Set a Fiscal Year End in your basic information settings to get additional date range filters in your reports (especially if you have a year-end date that is different from Dec 31)
  • View the amounts for each fiscal period by running most accounting reports filtered to a specific date range, historical reports can also be run to view prior period amounts and to make adjustments any time
    • Use the Balance Sheet to view Retained Earnings which display previous period earnings
  • Export your accounting reports periodically to save offline copies to use for comparison
