In the last blog, I wrote a checklist of what preparations you need to do before closing your fiscal year. Below is part two of three in the blog series "Preparations for year end
in Infor M3" - during the actual closing period. Enjoy!

1. Night jobs

Check that night jobs on all transactions have been completed. Sometimes an extra run is required for internal transactions and it could also be required for invoice transactions.

2. Cost calculation

A final run of all cost calculations should be made. After this run, you can also make necessary changes in your costing models (elements and components). Many purchase agreements change at the beginning of a new year. Based on the accounting principles that you follow, your inventory will be revaluated. The important thing is that these revaluations are not made before the calculations has been run.

3. Currencies

If a final closing rate is used, make sure that these currencies are updated. After this, a process of revaluation of the claims and liabilities in foreign currency can be made. Reservations in the general ledger are made based on the needs. Reservations that have been made during the year should be reviewed, any bookings that need reversals or an additional booking should also be considered.

4. Check everything one last time

Checks on all records and verifications are done through different controls. Any incorrect jobs and interrupted jobs are to be found in these controls. When the checks are completed, there should be nothing that has not been transferred to the general ledger.

5. Print reconciliation lists

Once everything is booked, you can start with your reconciliation lists. Accounts receivables, accounts payables, goods received not invoiced, inventory lists etc. After this job, you can start closing the periods of the year and start printing reports.

Having been involved with ERP over a number of years from a customer perspective, I’ve seen how the right ERP solution can help transform the way a business performs and brings all the relevant data and processes together under ‘one roof’. 
Microsoft’s ever-popular Dynamics 365 (D365) platform brings ERP, CRM and BI (Enterprise Resource Planning, Customer Relationship Management and Business Intelligence, respectively) into one system. This means your people, processes and systems can be unified, giving you the visibility you need to drive your business forward.
ERP implementations (or any kind of system implementations for that matter) are tricky, time-consuming projects that require a lot of highly skilled manpower. That’s the main reason why business leaders, like yourself, may be wondering whether you should outsource your implementation project. Here are four signs to suggest you should work with an ERP implementation partner.
