Fall brings many things, one of them being our team ramping up for yet another season of Microsoft Dynamics GP year end.

Scheduling your Year End Appointment–Step by Step

1:  Log into the Customer Portal

2: Once logged in to our portal, please click on the Year End Scheduling tile.

3: From there, select “Add Year End Scheduling”.

4: Here, simply request your primary and secondary date choices and hit save. From there, a member of our team will  do our best to accommodate your preferred date and follow up with you. We will also do our best to pair you up with a resource you have worked with in the past– and if possible, the same resource you worked with the previous year to maintain as much continuity as possible.


Because this is a process that is only done once per year, it’s easy to forget all the steps that go into Year End Close. You can count on us, we want to make this process as smooth as we can for you which is why we spend so much time ramping up for it. Once Microsoft has released the service pack we will know a lot more so please check-in with us as we continue to ramp up.

If you don’t have access to our portal, please ask your Engagement Manager and we can get you set up.

Happy Year End ramp up to all!
