Can I change the start and end date of my accounts year?

Resolution

You are able to change the end date of your current accounts year, in order for the new start date to take place at the right time.

For example, if the accounting year is currently set as 1st January 2018 to 31st December 2018, but the correct dates should be 1st April 2018 to 31st March 2018. 

You would not be able to change the start date, however, you can change the end date.  This can be changed to either:

Option 1

1st January 2015 – 31st March 2015 – to make a three month year:

Option 2

1st January 2015 – 31st March 2016 – to make a 15 month year:

The maximum length of an accounting year is 18 months.

You should speak to your accountant before amending the closing date of an accounts year.

You should take a backup before amending any dates, and to change the dates you will need to go to “Setup” > “To Alter Accounts” and edit the account you wish amend.
