Hi NetbeamERP,

For enter opening balance you have to know a basic in accounting(according to debit and credit concept).

  • You will create and journal whose type will Opening/Closing Situation (or you can use directly the existing journal named "Opening Journal"
  • Go to Invoicing -> Journal Entries -> Journal Entries -> Create -> Select the "Opening Journal" and record the authers fields.
  • In journal entry lines you will set your opening balance. (For exemple 4111-----> 6000€). The system will do automatically the counterparty
  • Save and validate your journal entry. All opening balance will transfert to your account system

Good work

Go to Accounting - Configuration - Journals - Journal and create a new journal and in type select opening balance and then on the same tab select the Centralize journal checkbox. Now save this journal

Go to Accounting - Journal - journal entries  and then select the journals and now in lines select the account and post the debit entries for all account (trial balance)
