How to Add an Opening Balance

When a child's information is brought in on Abacus from a previous system, there is often an account balance, either debit or credit.  It's no problem, here's how to deal with it to ensure the payable amount on the next invoice reflects what is owed.

Go to the yellow 'Children' icon and click on 'Accounts'.

1) Click on the Charges tab.

2) Type in the opening balance that they owe you, or if you owe them and their in credit put a minus in front of the amount.

3) Put in the date for the opening balance amount.

4) Click Update.

This will be taken into consideration on the next invoice's payable amount.
