Why does the closing balance in the Vendor Balances Summary report not match with the accounts payable in the Balance Sheet report?

The accounts payable in the Balance Sheet report displays the total outstanding payables for the selected period. However, if you’ve recorded any advance payments, those transactions will be listed under prepaid expenses. To calculate the closing balance for the selected period, subtract the accounts payable from the prepaid expenses.

The closing balance in the Vendor Balances Summary report includes the outstanding payables for your vendors and the excess payments made.

If you want to view the accounts payable in the Vendor Balance Summary report, you can add the Payable Amount column to the report. Here’s how:

  • Go to the Reports module on the left sidebar.
  • Select Vendor Balance Summary report under Payables.
  • On the Customer Balance Summary report page, click Customise Report at the top.
Click Customize Report
  • On the Customise Report page, go to the Show or Hide Columns tab.
  • In the Available Columns section, hover over Payable Amount and click the + button next to it.
  • If you have created transactions in different currencies, hover over Payable Amount (FCY) and click the + button next to it.
Click + next to Payable Amount
  • The Payable Amount field will be added to the Selected Columns.
  • Click Run Report.

The Payable Amount field will be added as a column to the Vendor Balance Summary report.
