    Next week this question is obsolete, because after the June closure you cannot anymore post to May.

    Have you ever encountered some hecting in the beginning of new months? most with the accountants. They try to close their books for the last month, have to report the results to the stakeholders. What is your opionion. Do they want that someone posts to the a closed month on the 28th of the next month?

    In some regions in the world it seems to be more common practise to post into the original period than in other regions (I just interprete all the discussions about reopening of closed periods- screwing up all month end closure reports that were already produced and distributed)

    Best is you ask your accountant in which month they want to see this posting

    Dear Mark,

    You can use posting date 20.05.2012. It is better because it can help you avoid currency conversion issue if you have foreign currency.
