Accounting Date

In Workday, the Accounting Date must align with the open fiscal period in which the journal posts. The accounting date is inherited from the originating transaction (Expense Report Header, Supplier Invoice) or entered by the initiator of the accounting journal.

If a transaction is created in one month but is not approved and accounted during that same month, the Accounting Date on the transaction will change to the 1st day of the open fiscal period in which the transaction is being accounted.
