Company Maintenance - Closing a Period

NOTE:This document is a guide for the Finance Department in maintaining account ledger periods (opened/closed) in Rental Results.  There are four (4) ledgers used in Results, AR. AP, Item and GL. Each ledger period must be Ended and Closed to move the period calendars forward.  The flowchart below is a high level view of the process.  This material is based on the current Workshop Environment set up.


Each Ledger must be closed in the following order AR, AP, Item and GL.  You cannot close GL if one of the other ledgers is still open. If there are any open transactions found when attempting to close any of the ledgers, these transactions must be completed using the “Utilities>Financial Batch Recovery” steps.
