The future minimum rent commitment reports show rent due for the next five “years” by year, then all remaining rent in the “Thereafter” group. (The number of years can change from five if selected in Number of separate years in future rent commitment report.) You can choose whether a “year” should be defined as 12 months from the end date of the report, or as the next fiscal year end. So if a report ends on June 30, and you have fiscal year ending 12/31, a selection of 12 Months will cause the first year of the minimum rents to include 12 months of rent, while selecting Fiscal Year will cause the first year to include 6 months. Years 2 through 5 always include 12 months of rent, but the start and end of the year is derived from the end of the first year.
