This is a feature request to allow different accounting periods other than calendar months. This feature is standard in a lot of high-end PM & accounting software. I don't believe it's possible to do it in MS Project so it would be a good "selling" point.

The feature would allow accountreports to be configured to whichever system the user wanted.

There are numerous 4-4-5 (or 5-4-4, or 4-5-4) week/months systems,
based on the start date/day.

Then there are other 4-5 systems that use a "last day of the month".
i.e. generally Friday, Saturday or Sunday.
