Hi, we are currently on Clarity 12, fp6 and have our financial year running from April to March. Does anyone know of any impact to the system if we changed our financial year to run from Jan-Dec?
No one else has this question

When you change the start of the fiscal year then all the views and portlets based on the fiscal year will be different for the time frame where the change occurs. You would have to manually make them comparable outside Clarity if you need them. The same goes for reporting.
That will not affect timeentries and timeperiods until the data gets into PPA_WIP and datamart. You can reinitialize datamart so that the existing timeperiods are also removed.
Clarity does not allow overlapping fiscal periods and you would have to test it in a testsystem if your version allows a gap.
I have not tried deleting fiscalperiods, but if that were possible then you could position the change into the past.
If you have the option to create a new entity then you are not bound by the above, but the down side is that it means restart for the financial organizational structure and most of the things currently associated are hard to move or can be moved at all because they are already associated. That is not a good option.
