Possibly needs  crossreferences in the glossary. Accounting period is really a
general term which can be any of weekly, monthly, quarterly, semi annual,
annual, financial year, fiscal year as required by external and internal
reporting requirements for an entity (person, business, company etc). The
external requirements are often defined by legislation nd regulations in
specific legal jurisdictions and the internal requirements by specific
manangement practice.
