I can provide you with some details about your concerns with your Year-End Date.


Closing your books means that you can no longer change any data entered in your previous fiscal year. This allows you to enter a password to ensure that no changes happen.


Changing the first month of your fiscal year doesn’t affect your balances. Thus, you can change it from your Accounts and Settings.


In addition, you may need to close your books first before changing the first month of your fiscal year.

  1. Click on the Gear icon.
