Financial years always have 12 months in The Business Plan Shop, we don't support stub years.
If you start your business within the financial year, the software will establish financial statements on a 12 months basis from your business's start date (for example from September to August).
However, if you would like to use the end of the calendar year as the financial period end date, you can get around the issue:
- Choose January as a start date, by changing the start date in the options
- Enter the first year data monthly from the month where your financial period starts
Please note that this will, however, mean that you will be unable to use the Sources & Uses table.
