The financial calendars in Acumatica consist of the fiscal years where each year consists of the number of financial periods. Acumatica provides its users to add a 13th financial month, where they can make accounting adjustments related to bad debts, write-offs, and other incomes/expenses. It depends on the user whether they want to opt for a monthly accounting period or 13 accounting periods.
