Year End Considerations


Whether your fiscal year ends on December 31st or not, here are a few considerations before the ball drops on New Year's Eve

  • Be sure to enter the full date when entering transactions in January.  Be sure to enter 12/31/2011 and not just 12/31.  MAS will default the year to be the current year and unless you enter the full date, you might end up with transactions dated 12/31/2012
  • Ensure that you have closed off last fiscal year before starting the next year.  If you've closed off January 2011, then you'll have no chance to post back to January 2011 by mistake when you intended to post to January 2012
  • The next fiscal year is automatically created for you in the General Ledger module.  When you post the first transaction from any module, the next year is automatically created.  If your business operates on a 4 week cycle, rather than a normal month cycle, you'll want to create the year manually before posting any transactions for the next year
  • Make a backup of your data -- before running year end, you might want to consider making a copy of your company so that you can run reports before data might get purged
  • Be sure to check the options screen for each module to ensure that you won't be purging data that you didn't intend to

These are just a few things to consider.  Please connect with us through our support website at if you need assistance planning your year end.
