Why would you want to split the periods?

From an accounting point of view it should not be a problem unless the
change of ownership occurs in the middle of the month. In this case I would
simply change the period and start dates for March and/or April. This would
allow the company to continue to do comparative reporting year against year
and like period with like period in different years.

The only impact of a middle of the month change would be skewed results for
the 2 periods. Over the course of the year it would not have an effect.

Hi Arlett,

Period 13 usually follows after period 12.

Are you going to use period 4 for "April before purchase" and period 5 for
"April after purchase"?

We created a separate environment the last time we were purchased. Will you
need to run "Year End" in the "Before Purchase" environment?

Best Regards,
