How can I change company start date?

@remars

There is no need to SHOUT by using all Capital letters.

The "start date" in desktop is to help you consider the transition to using QB. There is no Start Date literally stored anywhere. You can enter a transaction dated Jan 1, 1950 if it matters to your data file.

The system automatically using Fiscal Year to close the financial reporting.

Let's go to your own topic:

There isn't one anywhere in Desktop. It is asked as part of the Interview process, but it isn't stored and controls nothing.

Everything you put in the file, you will put the Date on it.

Only QB Online has a "start date" that prevents specific entries.
