    Closeout or Closure

    I am preparing an end year report and I have a doubt about what sound better and what is the difference between closure and closeout. I am going to use it on the title “2015 closeout/closure report”

    Thanks
    Alfredo

    Re: Closeout or Closure

    'Closeout' is wrong and 'closure' is inappropriate. If it's an end of year report, call it that.

    ps. Since posting those words, I have learnt that 'closeout' is possible - see post #4,

    "To have a doubt" is an Indian English expression. The rest of the Anglophone world has a question.

    Re: Closeout or Closure

    We have closeout in American (business) English - a "closeout report" is the final report of a project, for example. A "year-end closeout report" is quite probable in the U.S.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
