Switch Fiscal Year from 4-4-5 to calendar month

Post by joeran » Thu Aug 09, 2007 2:25 am

Hi All,
my customer has decided to change fiscal year variant (FYV) from 4-4-5 rule to calendar month. Fiscal Year 08 will beginn October 1st 07.
Changing the assignment of the FYV to the Company Code will have al lot of impacts in almost every module. Therefore, rather than changing the variant my idea is to change the customizing of the current variant corresponding to the new rule.
In detail:
With the current 4-4-5-FYV the last period of fiscal year 07 will end September 30th. Thus corresponding to the new rule. I would change the setting for the first period of FY 08 so that it will end October 31th. And so on. That`s it!
Is there nothing to be said against it?
Best Regards from Switzerland,
