Finance DirectorateYear end processing deadlines

The University’s Financial Year ends on 31 July 2023. If you initiate or approve financial transactions, please be aware of the processing deadlines: it may be important for your Department’s budgetary position and the University’s year end financial position that certain transactions are fully processed and approved on FMS in the current financial year.

Goods receipting and invoice approval are, in particular, key FMS tasks to undertake promptly in the run up to the year end. Please ensure that substitutes are activated if you will be unavailable (for example, due to annual leave) to ensure tasks are progressed. Please also be aware that, in order to support necessary system updates at the year end itself, FMS will be unavailable from 5pm on Friday 28 July 2023, becoming available again by 9 am on Tuesday 1 August 2023.
