Fiscal Year 2019-20 Year End Financial Closing

Fiscal Year 2017-2018 Year End Financial Closing

Webster University’s fiscal year ends on May 31, 2020. In order to be compliant with GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles), Webster University must include in its financial statements all expenses incurred during the year. The Webster community’s effort to meet the following deadlines is greatly appreciated: 


Expenditures for equipment, supplies, and services should be recorded in the fiscal year ending May 31, 2020, provided the items have been received or services rendered to Webster University on or before May 31, 2020. If a purchase order has been signed and dated that items were received prior to May 31, 2020, and the invoice has been submitted through Concur by June 3, 2020, it will appear as a fiscal year 2019-2020 expense. For partial shipments, those items actually received on or before May 31, 2020, will be recorded as an expense in the current fiscal year.

Invoices and Voucher Requests

Invoices and Voucher Requests that pertain to goods or services received prior to May 31, 2020 should also be submitted by May 31, 2020 so they may be approved in Concur on or before June 5, 2020. The goods or services must be received by May 31, 2020 to be recognized as a fiscal year 2019-2020 expense. Do not use the invoice date to determine the fiscal year the goods or services should be expensed. Please add the date for the receipt of goods or services in the comments section when submitting invoices for payment.

We can record charges in the 2019-20 fiscal year for goods/services received even if you have not received an invoice. If you have expenses in the 2020-21 fiscal year that for some reason you have not received an invoice, please contact Amy Bielicke at

Petty Cash reimbursements after May 31, 2020, will be recorded as a fiscal year 2019-20 expense.
