Mastering Year-End Closing with NetSuite 2023 OneWorld: Essential Accounting Tips

As the year 2023 draws to a close, accountants, CFOs, and business owners are gearing up for the annual flurry of year-end accounting tasks. For companies of all sizes, navigating through the complexities of financial analytics, reporting, and big data can be a significant challenge. To ensure a seamless year-end financial management process using NetSuite OneWorld, consider the following essential tips.

1. Clean Data for a Smooth Close

Organizing fiscal calendars is a pivotal step in achieving a clean year-end close. NetSuite OneWorld users can efficiently manage multiple fiscal calendars, allowing the finance team to organize and utilize different accounting period rollups for subsidiaries and specific timeframes. Follow these steps to streamline your fiscal calendar process:

  • Create a Fiscal Calendar: Navigate to Setup -> Accounting -> Manage G/L -> Fiscal Calendars.

  • Assign a Fiscal Calendar to One or Multiple Subsidiaries.

  • View the Fiscal Calendar: Select the fiscal calendar to see a comprehensive rollup of accounting periods for assigned subsidiaries.

  • Set Up a Full Fiscal Year: Create customizable accounting periods for a specific fiscal calendar.


2. Customer and Vendor Data Management

Ensuring clean year-end data involves updating customer and vendor records. To maintain accurate customer records, enable customer list permissions for the finance team and check Recent Activity through Setup -> Accounting -> Manage Accounting Periods. If the activity log is empty, consider making the customer inactive.

Apply a similar process to vendor records, verifying that all active vendors have up-to-date information. In Accounts Payable, inactive vendors can be identified by clicking System Information and checking the Inactive box
