Click General ledger > Periodic > Fiscal year close > Purchase order year-end process.

Use this form to close purchase order encumbrances in the fiscal year that is being closed, and then re-establish them in the new fiscal year. The purchase orders remain open, and only the purchase order encumbrances are closed and then re-established. You can select how to process the purchase order encumbrances, and also select which purchase order encumbrances to process.

If you’re in the public sector and you use general budget reservations together with purchase orders, see also Finalize a general budget reservation (Public sector) and Carry forward general budget reservation information to a new fiscal year (Public sector).
NoteNote

General budget reservations are available only if the Public Sector configuration key is selected and if Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3 Cumulative Update 8 is installed with the following hotfix: KB3047235
