How to Set Financial Period


A financial year is a period of twelve months, used by government, businesses, and other organizations in order to calculate their budgets, profits, and losses. Financial year is often used in business to compare with the calendar year.


In QNE, Financial Period corresponds to the Financial Year. This must be configured first before entering transactions to define the basis of the report as well as the opening balances.



Set up Financial Period for the year 2022 and the opening balance as of December 2021.


1. Go to Maintenance > Financial Period.

2. Input the Accounting Period.

Fiscal Start Year = Start of Financial Year

Fiscal Start Month = 1st month of the Financial Year

Length of the First Fiscal Period = 12 months

Account Start Year= Year to start the 1st live transaction (usually same with the Fiscal Start year unless Fiscal Start Year is not in Calendar Year)

Account Start Month = Month to start the 1st live transaction in the System

Cut Off Date (Automatic) = Basis of Opening Balance or 1st day of Live Transaction

3. Once done, click Save.

Note: Once the system already has a transaction, Financial Period is no longer editable.
