Change Dates of Fiscal year


I have a custmer that would like to change their Fiscal year from starting with October as period 1 and endind in September as period 12 to match the calander year. That is January as period 1 and December as period 12. My first challange is that currently, December is period 3. That means I need to close the period AND perform a Year End closing at the end of this month. I also need to create a New Year with period 1 starting on January 01 2009. I see that I can delete periods that have no activity posted to them yet, so I can delete January throgh October in the currect fiscal year. This should free up the January 2009 on as date ranges for the new fiscal year.

What I am lookig for is documentation on how to handle this with the stamp of approval from SAP. Has anybody done this yeat and if so could you point me in the right direction to find the documentation to properly accomplish this task? And are there any "gotchas" that I need to be aware of?

Again, Thanks in Advance
