Change of year end date to a past date

I have shortened my company’s year end date from 30/09/2021 to 31/03/2021. Prior year ended 30/09/2020 was already closed in QF. When I try to change the Next Year End Date, I came across an error message “This date should be in the future”. Please help.


Hi @changbre

You can’t change the year end date to a past date in your company settings. You can set it to 31/03/2022.

Have you tried running the year end tool?

But my current financial year (from 01/10/2020 - 30/09/2021) is still open. The Company House allows to change the current financial year end date. If this is not possible to be done in QF, then I will have a trouble with my year end submission. Is there a solution for this?

Year end process was done up till year end 30/09/2020. Do you mean to manually input the year end date 30/09/2021 in the Year End Process without changing the company setup which would work?

You can run the year end process for a custom date. So you can run the year end up to 31/03/2021 to lock it and then in your company settings add the next year end date as 31/03/2022.

Hope this helps
