The Year End Form allows you do all the Year End transactions for the company. When these operations complete the customer/Vendor balances are rolled back to the last year. The Chart of Account Balances are also rolled back from this year to last year. In addition to this all Income Statement accounts are written off and the final balance is written in to the retained earnings account. The Journal entries for the previous year a re deleted and the Balance Sheet Accounts balances are maintained to the next year. We recommend changing the accounting periods of the company after completing this process to reflect the new Fiscal Year to be initiated.
This operation should be done in a Single-User Mode and it is recommended to do a full data backup before. Make sure that only the right personnel have access to this feature.
