Currently, I am looking how to properly close my fiscal year, and be still able to get useful reports. And I have some problems which seems related to period type and report of non-deferral accounts.
First, few context: in France, we usually have moves at end of the year for last-minute correction, or for “moving” an expense (or an income) from one fiscal year to another (for example for Produits constatés d’avance or Charges constatées d’avances)
For such “special moves”, I am using “adjustement” Period at end of the fiscal year, and another “adjustement” Period fat the beginning of the next fiscal year.
I have also another “adjustement” Period for non-deferral reporting when closing my fiscal year (at 31-Dec-2019 too). It needs to be separated from previous in order to be able to use FEC export wizard.
So my fiscal year has:
- 12 standard period (one per month, no overlapping)
- 1 adjustement period at 01-Jan-2019 for undoing special moves of 2018
- 1 adjustement period at 31-Dec-2019 for special moves of 2019
- 1 adjustement period at 31-Dec-2019 for non-deferral reporting
Now, in general ledger if I want to look at my previous fiscal year, I have no way to have the whole fiscal year except the non-deferral period. If I specify no period, only “standard” one are considered. If I specify end_period, both “special move” and “non-deferral” are included.
At first stance, it seems to me a Period type is missing, and I would need a special type for “specials moves” Period ; or be able to have overlapping dates in “standard” type.
