  2. Click the Gear icon⚙ and then select Accounts and Settings.
  3. Tap the Advanced tab.
  4. Click the Edit ✎ in the Accounting section.
  5. Tap the Close the books checkbox.
  6. Enter a closing date. Give yourself a comfortable deadline.
  7. Select the Allow changes after viewing a warning and entering a password option from the drop-down menu if you want to require a password before editing your closed books.
  8. Hit Save and then Done.
