How to Ensure a Speedy and Accurate Year-End Close in Dynamics GP

How to Ensure a Speedy and Accurate Year-End Close in Dynamics GP

It’s December, and you know what that means: Year-end close is upon us. While not the only stressor that comes at the end of the year (the entire holiday season might create its own stress), it’s certainly a deadline (or set of deadlines) you face as the calendar ends.

Closing 2017 Out in Microsoft Dynamics GP

Whether you are using 2013, 2015, or 2016, the year-end closing process in Dynamics GP is a relatively challenging procedure that requires a lot of background work and backups in order to run as smoothly as possible. While GP does a lot of the hard work for you, closing is a procedure—one that is well documented throughout a multitude of blogs on the Dynamics Community.

From the basics like general ledger, payables, receivables, and more to the complexities like hours tracking for ACA, payroll, and fixed assets, in order for the next few weeks to go smoothly, you will need to tackle things in a very specific order in order to make the process as efficient and painless as possible.
