    Year specific number ranges are applicable to CIN and MM also apart from FI number range. Hence, you need to check especially with Excise team about this proposal who should get concurrence from their Excise Department. For SD, it is a continuous number range and hence, there wont be any impact.

    thanks

    First of all please SAP Note 672255 - Shortened fiscal year/changing fiscal periods. There are risks involved if you change the fiscal year in a live SAP system and that is mention there.

    For other references the following previous SDN threads on Fiscal Year Variant change on Live system:

      As I believe, this a genuine requirement for change in fiscal year for your business. Therefore, connect SAP for suggest and smooth way out. As list of risk mention in notes is very high.
