Hi venumadhav

In FInancial Accounting , Period is during time that you post G/L account and you have to close period after end of period and you will see the balance each G/L Account in each period.

There are 12 normal period and 4 special period (normal case , but can be changed by configuration ). normal period are Jan , Feb ,...Dec and Special period are the extended period that use for posting in special case .For example if you close period in Dec and you have to adjust G/L Account by auditor checking , you can post G/L Account to special period . special period are 13,14,15,16. 12 may use for Audit , 13 may use for changing after Sending to audit and found something mistake . that 's sample.

normally there is posting date to control the period (BUDAT) in the table BSIS. if the posting date is in the during time of period , we can say this posting is in that period .

posting date : 03.09.2007 period : 09

posting date : 30.11.2007 period : 11
