FY19 Year End and First Quarter Close

October 2, 2019

The general ledger for FY19 officially closed last week, and first quarter FY20 closes this week with the September month-end. When running FY20 financial reports, the July beginning balances reflect the final year-end close balances.
Other information and reminders about monthly close and reporting:

  • As a reminder, according to Procedure 1101.04, units are responsible for ensuring that balance sheet ledger accounts for which they are accountable are reconciled monthly and in a timely manner.
