12-Steps For Year-End Procedures
Here are 12 steps you can follow.
Step 1: Create the New Fiscal Year
Create the new fiscal calendar for the new year. This allows you to create entries in the new year.
Go to Common Services/Fiscal Calendar to add the new year. Ensure that the Active checkbox is marked.
Tip: This should be done late in the fiscal year 2 months prior to year end.
Ex. For companies with December 31 year end, this can be done in October or November.
Step 2: Verify GL Options Information
Go to GL Options/Posting tab to verify that current fiscal year is set to the prior year. For example, if you are setting new fiscal year to 2013; current fiscal year on this screen should show as 2012
Define the number of years to keep history by fiscal set and transaction detail.
Print the GL Chart of Accounts in Detail Long Form and verify that all accounts are setup correctly.
For example, make sure income accounts are setup as income accounts and balance accounts are setup as balance sheet accounts. Also verify that any accounts with activity are not inactive.
Step 3: Verify GL Chart of Accounts Information
Print the Trial Balance report for year end and a second time for closing and adjustment periods. Make sure to print for all activity and exclude accounts with no activity
Step 4: Print the Trial Balance Report
Print all Financial Reports for current year.

Step 7: Print GL Posting Journals (Optional)

Step 9: Run Create New Year
Print posting journal report for year end transactions. Indicate year-end posting sequence number where indicated. This will include the closing entries.
Ensure that any accounts
that were activated for year-end purposes are changed to inactive.
Step 10: Verify Closing Entries
