Why the Fiscal Year Close in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 Is So Important, and How to Get It Right

February 22 2010

When a company finalizes its accounts for a particular year using Microsoft Dynamics AX and doesn't want to make any further changes in that year, it can then close that year by using 'Fiscal Year Close'.

At that point, the records of that year will be available only for view. No more changes are possible in that year. If you have filed your returns for any particular year and don't need to make any changes, you can close that year.
