Opening Balance: How to Balance

Eddie Davis -

When you set opening balances in FINSYNC, assets may not equal liabilities plus equity. Until you balance your opening balance entries, FINSYNC uses a system-generated General Ledger account called "Opening Balances Adj" that displays the difference that needs to be corrected.

Balancing your opening balance is easy. Follow these steps:

1)  Click "Reports" in the top nav and then "Balance Sheet" in the left nav.


2)  Scroll down to the "Shareholder's Equity" section and look for a row titled "Opening Balance Adj."


3)  If you do not see this row, your opening balances are in balance.  If you do see it, the amount shown in the right column is the difference you need to account for in your opening balances.

All Finished!
