  • A company may only change its financial year end once during a particular financial year. 
  •  A company may not choose a financial year end that will result in the total financial year being more than 15 months. 
  • A company may choose to shorten its financial year in which instance there is no minimum applicable.
  • The new year end must be later than the date on which the notice is filed.
  • The current financial year end must not have ended.
