9.In the Description Box, write, "Opening Balance – Receivables".

10.In the Right Accounts column @ top right, enter the offsetting $ value to balance the Total line.

11.Select Add.

* Aged Monthly and/or individual invoice entries can be made but require the GL Adjustment Date to be set to the dated entry. This process can be used for each aged invoice or month. If entering aged invoices, use the invoice # in the description field. If entering aged balance by month, use the Opening Balance & Month in the description field. Using this process will be timely and offers many opportunities for errors in entry.
