Fiscal calendars

With fiscal calendars you can define fiscal periods, such as one month long or four weeks long or Q1 2015 or July 2015.

To create a fiscal calendar, activate the Fiscal Calendar [com.snc.fiscal_calendar] plugin.

You can create one of these types:

Calendar type Description
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 calendar 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 calendar duration.
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 calendar duration.
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.
Attention: Once you start working with a set of financial data with a fiscal calendar type, you cannot change to another type of fiscal calendar. Be sure you can use your fiscal calendar 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.
