The year-end function makes a copy of your G/L transaction details and adds one year to your current financial year date range. Your financial year date range is set in the Firm Settings function and is used, similar to the default posting month, by posting functions, by reports and by the year-end function itself.
You will be unable to post into the next year until you have run the year-end, but you are able to post into the previous year - most posting functions enable you to post directly into the previous year by providing a password after entering a date falling within the range of your previous financial year. The password is to prevent postings accidentally entered into the previous year.
Year-end procedures include the daily work such as adding new Client Files, posting transactions, performing a backup, printing transaction audits, and printing the System/File Balance reports, as well as specific year-end steps such as printing reports. If you post your transactions on a regular basis, the year-end steps can be completed quickly and easily.
You will be unable to post into the next fiscal year until you complete the year-end procedures for the current year.
