When logging in to Spire, a message pops stating that the "Date is past end of next fiscal year. Enter a date within the current, previous or next fiscal year."


This means you have not yet done a year end for 'last year'. Spire works with three years: last year, this year and next year. If you are logging in to 2017 and receive this message, then your 'last year' would be 2014.


Last Year This Year Next Year
2014 2015 2016

Performing a year end will close off 'last year' and advance the year in Spire. The Year End utility is located under Tools > Year End.
