Custom fiscal year variant

Hello Group,

I have a requirement to report on custom Period.

The requirement is to report on Accounting Period (AP). Each AP will have fixed 4 weeks.



28/12/2014 - 03/01/2015 is Week 1

04/01/2015 - 10/01/2015 is Week 2

11/01/2015 - 17/01/2015 is week 3

18/01/2015 - 24/01/2015 is week 4


25/01/2015 - 31/01/2015 - Week 1

01/02/2015 - 07/02/2015 - Week 2

08/02/2015 - 14/02/2015 - Week 3

15/02/2015 - 21/02/2015 - Week 4

and so on. Hence 2015 will have 14 AP's

I was thinking for having a custom Fiscal Variant. Is that the right approach ? Or are there other options ?

Many thanks in advance.

    Hi Pradeep,

    The ACCOUNTING PERIODS are given before the start of the year right? How about creating a masterdata or maintaining a DSO for your accounting periods? Then just update it before a year starts?

    A custom FV should work, however, do keep in mind the below

    1. It is better to create the custom FV should be done in the source system and transferred to BW
    2. Wherever the FV is created, do ensure that an FI consultant (or somebody who understands FV definition well) does it. Changing an FV after data has been loaded can get tricky
