Guide to a One-Week Year-End Close


Year-end close is an inevitable part of the accounting cycle that closes the books before opening a new chapter in your organization. Temporary accounts are reset to zero, the prior period’s balance is locked in, retained earnings are updated and the slate is wiped clean for a fresh quarter.

The quarterly and annual collection of data is not a mere formality but is used for spearheading insight for the upcoming year. Financial analysis can inform budgeting, forecasting and other financial decisions. However, year-end close financial statements are only valuable when accurate.
