A company’s financial year end (FYE) represents the final day of its accounting period. The accounting period is the recognised interval to complete an accounting cycle of the business. The periodicity provides perspective about the profitability of the business on an ongoing basis. Records of transactions are kept over this period and reported in the form of a financial statement.
Accounting periods can be 12 months or over 52 weeks. Deciding on the FYE is very important as it will determine when your corporate filings are due every year.
You only need to determine your financial year end when you are formally legalizing your holding company. Discuss with your commercial advisor when you are ready to incorporate your holding company.
