For example, payroll was deducted from the bank on December 31st for $2000. This was a January payroll and was recorded the following year in January in the ledger. Create a positive $2000 and a negative $2000 transaction in the AP transaction screen. The easiest way to do this is create one side and then copy it and change the amount. So you would now have 3 transactions related to this event:
- December -2000 reconciled date in December
- December +2000 reconciled date in January
- January -2000 reconciled date in January - the original entry
December nets to $0 on the books, but shows a -2000 for the bank. January nets to $0 at the bank, but shows a -2000 in December.
