For small accounts where there are no un-presented items the conversion balances can be entered manually.  Set up any ledgers with held funds prior to entering the conversion balance.

There are 2 parts to conversion balances:

  1. the bank account balance and how it is allocated amongst the ledgers - this article deals with the bank account balances; and
  2. the tenants balance for paid to date and bonds or security deposits - ensure you also do this, before or after the bank balances step, see Setting a rent opening balance.

To enter the bank and ledger balances:

  • select Trust Accounts or Client Accounts from the green menu
  • select the trust account to convert
  • click the large red tile:

  • Enter the opening balance date and amount
  • Enter an opening balance for each ledger on the list
  • Save
