Updated: March 2, 2011

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012

At the end of a fiscal year, you must generate closing transactions and prepare your accounts for the next fiscal year. You can select accounts by fund for year-end closing and also close to different accounts. For example, you can close nominal accounts associated with governmental funds to fund balance and nominal accounts associated with proprietary funds to retained earnings. You can also set up year-end closing for all funds and non-funds. Non-funds do not have a fund dimension in the account structure.

You can set up multiple closing periods to segregate different types of closing entries, such as general year-end closing and audit adjustments.

For more information about year-end closing, see 会计年度结算核对清单.


This process is available only if the Public Sector configuration key is selected.

To set up year-end processes, complete the following tasks:

  1. Select a closing type for the closing account, such as nominal or real. For more information, see 主帐户-会计科目表 (窗体).

  2. 设置过帐定义: Define which originating and generated accounts will be updated at closing.


    In the Generated debit/credit field, select Balancing for generated entries. The first generated account that you enter will automatically be the offset (balancing) account, even if you select Same.

  3. 分配过帐定义至交易记录过账类型: Assign definitions by fund class for opening and closing transactions. You can also assign definitions to all funds and non-funds.

  4. 将未结余额转移到新的会计年度:

    1. Select the calendar and fiscal year to process.

    2. Select the periods through which balances will be used to create closing and opening entries.

    3. Select the funds to process. You can process a single fund, range of funds, or all funds.

    4. Optional: Preview transactions before posting to the General ledger.
