Trade Creditors & Debtors

Problem reported by Jenny Carr 7 years ago

Hi, Why can't I enter opening balances under Getting Started > Creditor / Debtor in the trade Creditor / debtor accounts? The balances only show on the BS if I move Debtors to Revenue & Debtors to another expense account

Hi Jenny,

It automatically puts an entry for trade creditors and debtors. If that account code is chosen again when making an invoice, it will cancel them off.

Please choose a non trade creditors or debtors account code when creating your opening balances.

I hope that this is helpful.

All the best,
