How NetSuite speeds up end-of-year accounting


For many companies, the end of March/beginning of April marks the end of one financial year and the start of a new one. For accountants, it can mean pulling long hours and racing to meet deadlines for end-of-year accounting and reporting. 


End-of-year accounting refers to the process of finalising financial records and preparing financial statements at the close of a fiscal year. Of course, depending on your organisation, this need not be in-line with end of the tax year, though it often is for convenience.


Whenever it occurs, end-of year accounting is a critical task for businesses to accurately report their financial performance and position to stakeholders, including investors, regulators, and tax authorities.

NetSuite provides real-time visibility into financial data throughout the year. You can access up-to-date financial reports and dashboards at any time, allowing you to monitor your financial performance and make informed decisions.

When it comes to producing end-of-year reports, NetSuite is highly customisable, allowing you to tailor the system to your company's specific accounting needs. You can create custom financial reports, workflows, and reminders to streamline year-end processes and ensure compliance with accounting standards and regulatory requirements.
