Fiscal calendars

Fiscal calendars

The fiscal calendar defines fiscal periods, such as Q1 2015 or July 2015.

Starting with the Helsinki release, you can create one of these types:
  • Regular: A calendar with 12 periods, each of which is one month long.
  • 13 Period: A calendar with 13 periods, each of which is four weeks long.
    Note: This is the only type that does not use quarters.
  • 445: A calendar that divides a year into subsequent 4-week, 4-week, 5-week periods. The first and second periods have four weeks, and the last has five weeks. The application creates these periods for the duration of the calendar.
  • 454: A calendar that divides a year into subsequent 4-week, 5-week, 4-week periods. The first period has four weeks, the second has five weeks, and the third has four weeks. The application creates these periods for the duration of the calendar.
  • 544: A calendar that divides a year into subsequent 5-week, 4-week, 4-week periods. The first period has five weeks, and the second and third have four weeks.

Manually generate a fiscal calender.

Attention: Be sure that your fiscal calendar can be used with your financial data. If you import records into the Fiscal period [fiscal_period] table, you should validate that they are correct and do not contain any gaps.

Once you start working with a set of financial data with a fiscal calendar type, you cannot change to another type of fiscal calendar.
