Year-End Closing Steps


There are no special year-end steps that must be performed beyond the usual month-end steps.

I.e. *) Make a Backup; *) Run the Month-End Aging Step; *) Print Statements (only if you have Accounts Receivable); *) Run the Reset the Month step.



However, this is a good time to consider a few additional steps, checks, and reports


In addition to the usual daily backup to a USB flash drive, make an extra data backup to a Yearly USB flash drive, which you should keep separate

If you have accounts receivable, consider the A/R Aging Report.
