The following abbreviations are used in Navita to ensure smooth budgeting and reporting from one period to another:

{BAP}Beginning of the active accounting period
{EAP}End of the active accounting period
{LAM} or {EOH}The last actual month
{FAM}The first actual month
{BPS}Beginning of the planning scenario
{EPS}End of the planning scenario
{NOW}Current calendar month
{BFY}Beginning of the fiscal year 
{EFY}End of the fiscal year
{BFP}Beginning of the first period
{ELP}End of the last period

Another way to set periods is in "month.year" format (10.2020). Periods can be also set by adding (+) or subtracting (-) the abbreviations by the number of periods of desired date modes. Supported date modes are M (month), Q (quarter) and Y (year). Few examples: 

  • {BAP-1Y} refers to the beginning of previous year
  • {BAP+1Q} refers to the beginning of the second quarter in the current, active accounting period
  • {LAM+1M} refers to the next month after the latest actual month (if last actual month is September, LAM+1M is October)
