Usually you want to book expenses in the year they happen to make it
easier to compare between different years and there might also be
legal/tax reasons to do that.
Reporting an expense from january in december is usually not a big
issue, but if you do this in the next year after the books have been
finalized, the expense will be booked in the wrong year.
