NetSuite OneWorld Accounting Tips

With the end of 2023 rapidly approaching, accountants, CFOs, and business owners are preparing for the rush of year-end accounting tasks. For companies of all employee and revenue counts, this is a sizeable undertaking. There are endless moving parts involved in accounting, financial analytics, and reporting.

Check these boxes for streamlined year-end financial management using NetSuite.


Clean Data is a Clean Close

Organizing Fiscal Calendars

NetSuite OneWorld users have the ability to manage multiple fiscal calendars cleanly, this feature enables the finance team to organize and use different accounting period rollups for subsidiaries and specific periods of time. The fiscal base calendar rolls up and aggregates all fiscal calendars across the business, while the aggregate period is a hierarchal calendar of periods such as quarters and multiple years.

How to Create a Fiscal Calendar in NetSuite:
  • Create a Fiscal Calendar: Setup > Accounting > Manage G/L > Fiscal Calendars.
  • Assign a Fiscal Calendar to One or Multiple Subsidiaries.
  • View the Fiscal Calendar: select the fiscal calendar to view the comprehensive rollup of accounting period for the subsidiaries assigned to a specific fiscal calendar.
  • Set Up Full Fiscal Year: Create customizable accounting periods for a specific fiscal calendar.
Customer and Vendor Data

Ensuring the cleanliness and accuracy of your year-end data is crucial, and one way to achieve this is by updating customer records. By keeping your customer information up to date, you can ensure that your financial records are reliable and error-free.

How to Edit Customer Records in NetSuite:
To edit a customer record, ensure that customer list permissions are enabled for the finance team. If the Recent Activity in the account (accessible through Setup > Accounting > Manage Accounting Periods) is empty, the customer can be made inactive.

The same process can be applied to vendor records. Make sure all active vendors have the correct information on file. Vendors with no activity for the fiscal period can be made inactive in Accounts Payable by clicking System Information > Check the Inactive box.

Looking Back


Performing a finance “post-mortem” is critical to planning for the next year and beyond. NetSuite includes a robust set of financial reporting features that can be used to present finances to the C-suite and used to prepare and plan for the future.

Registers of Accounts Payable and Accounts receivable can be accessed in the reporting tab on the AR or AP screens. Sales Tax reporting, Purchases, and Vendor reporting information are available as well.

These reports can be pulled to aggregate all financial data for a unified picture of the businesses’ profit, loss, and spends. Reporting simplifies the financial closing process for executives outside of the finance department, making it easier for them to understand and make informed decisions about the business's financial health.
