There are specific tasks that need to be completed at the end of the fiscal year. Your fiscal year may or may not match your calendar year. Only complete these tasks at the end of your fiscal year.
All tickets, receivers, inventory adjustments, cash receipts, customer adjustments, and transfers must be posted. Run an edit list in each of areas, make sure they are empty. If they are not empty, then you will need to post those sections.
We also recommend running a valuation report to get the value of your inventory after completing your year-end process… Your accountant will thank you! IMPORTANT! The Valuation Report lets you see either a detailed or summarized report of the average cost, last cost, and retail value of current on hand inventory. Use this report when you need to declare the value of inventory for tax purposes. Once you have started the New Year, you cannot go back and run this report. It must be run after all posting and before any new posting.

If you have the Receivables option that you use for your A/R Customers, then you will also need to print the Customer Aging. The Aging report tells you which customers have a balance. We recommend you run this initially at the beginning of the last fiscal month, so you can determine if any of the balances need to be written off.
The Aging Report is part of the Receivable Option and lets you see either a detailed or summarized report of A/R customer balance information for each A/R customer. This report ages your customer account balances based on the document date or due date, and displays if they have any balances are 30, 60, 90 days overdue.
On the Parameters tab
