Choosing a go-live date

If you ask any accountant which date to choose to start working with Dynamics NAV, they will always answer "January 1". The reason behind this answer is that, for most companies, January 1 is the beginning of their fiscal year. It has advantages, no doubt, but it also has drawbacks.
