Choosing A Fiscal Year End

Choosing A Fiscal Year End

Many organizations automatically align their fiscal year so that it coincides with the calendar year. Perhaps a calendar year end is a good choice for you, but there are issues that you should consider. Some of these are:

  • If you anticipate trying to get government grants, it might help to be on the same fiscal year end as the government, September 30th.
  • A calendar year end will make it difficult to have your financial reports prepared early enough to file your state registration requirements. You will need to request extensions each year.
  • This would require you to prepare your financial reports and be audited during the auditor’s busy season.
