Accounting Periods

I need to find out what would be involved in changing our accounting year closing periods to 4-4-5 closing.

What would be involved in changing the closing periods in the system to be in a 4-4-5 pattern, in other words, four weeks, four weeks then five weeks and cycle back so the system tracks the correct dates that the period close occurs.

We would want to reconfigure the periods to a 4-4-5 methodology with the following period closing dates. Is this possible. If so, how big of problem is it to change from our current configuration?

Month Weeks Close Date

you need to use OB29

Depending on when you want to switch you will need to create a shortened Fiscal Year.

You then need to define a year Dependent Fiscal Year Variant, and then assign that to the Company Codes you use.
