The Month-End Closing Function
In order to carry out a monthly closing in the billwerk system, please go to Activities > Accounting > Monthly closing.
If no monthly closing has yet been performed, no "Last closing date" is displayed. Otherwise, you will see the date of the last day of the last closed period. The "Next Closing Date" is the date of the last day of the next month not yet connected.
If no month-end closing has yet been performed, the date of the last previous month is displayed as the "Next closing date". If you have already been using your billwerk account for some time and are running a month-end closing for the first time, all other previous months will also be closed.
By clicking on the button "Close next month", you can close the corresponding period after confirmation. Now the date of the last day of the closed period is displayed as "Last closing date". The "Next Closing Date" shows the date of the next month following the last closed month.
If the next closable period is the current month, you also have the option of closing it prematurely. In this case, activate the checkbox for premature closing and carry out the month-end closing.
Please note: A completed month-end closing cannot be undone!
What happens to a completed month?
If a month has been closed in the billwerk system, all bookings that actually fall into this month are booked on the first day of the next open period. In practice, this usually affects adjustment postings that occur when the account settings are changed.
You can change the postings that have been postponed by the month-end closing by displaying the "ideal posting date" in parentheses after the "real" posting date.
Note: If you want to perform monthly closing for the first time, we recommend that you first generate the outstanding exports for the open periods. This means that all postings for the period to be closed are fixed beforehand.
