Preparing for the Year End

Local payments schools have considerable flexibility in their internal arrangements. The only mandatory dates are those in the DCC timetable.

Schools will need to plan their approach to the work required. The detail will vary from school to school according to the availability of staff resources and the volume of transactions to be dealt with.

Run preliminary closedown of FMS, after FMS period 12 reconciliation by 24 April. This will enable, if required, old year invoices to be paid in the new year.

All transactions must be complete and the returns sent to the Director of Resources, for this years deadline please see the year end ‘Tasks and Deadlines Timetable’ on the year end webpage.
