Have the administrator of Quickbooks log in mono-user mode and go under Edit --> Preferences --> Accounting --> Company Preferences Tab --> Change the closure date / password from there. He will be able to remove or assign a new password.

Go to File - Start a New Year - Start a New Financial Year. Continue through the next few screens until you see the Current financial year and a box showing the New Financial Year. Say your current financial year is 2013 and the New Financial Year shows as 2014. Change this to 2012 and then continue through the screens til the end. Then check your financial year under Setup - Company Information, you will find it now shows 2012. Enter the transactions you need, then go through the process again to change to 2013.
This is an undocumented feature un-supported by MYOB. Try with caution - not aware of any serious consequences but a few I know have done this.
Changing your system date and opening MYOB is a sure fire way to get locked out. MYOB records the date each time you open it. If the date goes backwards, it locks you out. Part of their protection.

Open QuickBooks then go to "edit" at the top left side of the page. This will open a drop down list. Then go all the way down to the last choice which is "preferences". Then choose "accounting" This will open two choices - my preferences on one tab and "company preferences" on the other. Choose company preferences and you will find a place there to set the date that the books are closed through. Enter your date and then hit "ok" and close the preferences area. The software will change the date and tell you where to go from that point.
