Opening Balance for Contacts

You could be carrying over your customer or vendor balances when you are migrating from another accounting application.

To enter opening balances for your customers:

You can enter the opening balance for your customers in one of the following ways:

Insight: Outstanding Receivables in the contact overview page contains the total amount the customer owes you (for the invoices created) and also includes the outstanding opening balance you had added initially.

In case you would like to view/update the opening balance entered, go to Contact Details > Overview > Outstanding Receivables. Click Update and enter the updated Opening Balance.

Insight: Outstanding Opening Balance is the balance the customer owes you excluding the amount from the sales transactions created for them in Zoho Books. Each time you record a payment received (apart from the ones you record for the invoices you created in Zoho Books), the outstanding opening balance reduces.

To enter opening balances for your vendors:
