Using Quickbook Enterprise- Can it handle a fiscal month which is not calendar? October would be 10/1--to 10/29? Does handle month end close?

New to Quickbook Enterprise- Key to us purchasing the program is can it handle a fiscal year company where the month/period is not a calendar month?    Other accounting programs do handle it. 

For example our company fiscal year starts October 1 but our October month covers Oct 1 through Oct 29 (our period 1) not a calendar month (October 1-31).

If it does where is it handle and how? I looked at my Company tab and it allows you to put your fiscal month but to define it. 

I am frustrated because as an accountant this is very common practice so I am surprised that QBE doesn't handle this?

Any input, advice, recommendations on this topic would be very much appreciated.

People come to Accountants Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
