Accounting Periods

Can anyone tell me where on the net I can go to find a calendar that
shows accounting periods? I know that some months show 4 weeks while
others show 5 and though I'm not an accountant, I am responsible for
some financial accountability where I work and this calendar info
would be very helpful...

thanks very much,

I think you will find it depends on the monthly cut-off dates that your
company sets. Some companies close sales on the 3rd last working day of
each month and others go right up to the last working day. It depends on
how tight their reporting schedule is. I worked for a multi-national whose
end of year cut-off was set differently to its normal monthly cut-off. It
was about a week earlier than normal, but it wasn't a problem because they
followed the same procedure each year. Each year contained the same number
of working days except for leap years and years that had special holidays.

You can compile your own calender easily enough once you know what the
cut-off dates are. Remember, you will be counting working days not calendar
days.
