The purpose of posting period variant is to control the transaction being posted to FI for a particular period. We can assign one posting period variant to many company codes therefore to control the posting of all the company codes centrally from corporate by closing and opening the periods using the variant.

The special periods in the posting periods are used to posts special transaction post the closing of the regular 12 posting periods especially used for FI postings. The special posting periods can only be used in the last month of the fiscal year.
