I need help about Bank Account balance. I just started using this program and find a weird problem.
I was transferring my data to Manager and input the beginning balance of my bank accounts.
Currently I use 2 bank accounts. Lets say those are Bank A with $100 in it and Bank B with $50 in it.
The problem is when I generate a Balance Sheet report for beginning balance, the Cash in bank showed that amount in Bank B is calculated twice.
It showed as:
Cash in Bank A = $150 (the number is sum of Bank A and B)
Cash in Bank B = $50
So, my beginning balance is $200 instead of $150.
How did you add your bank accounts? Your statement that balances showed under Cash in Bank X suggests you created them outside the Bank Accounts tab. If they are created properly, they will show under Cash at Bank as subsidiary ledgers (unless you took the fairly unusual step of putting each in its own custom control account, which most beginning users would not). See this Guide: Manager Cloud.
Where and how did you enter your beginning balances? They should be entered under Starting Balances. See the Guide: Manager Cloud.
Your software is not up to date, or else you are using two different versions of Manager. I can tell this because your bank account entry screens show the checkbox for starting balance. This does not show on current version of the program. The starting balance can only be entered under Settings => Starting Balances.
Defining standard accounts as bank accounts will deprive you of all Manager’s bank account functionality. You have been furnished links to the Guides on how to do things properly. Read them. If you will noted not expect other forum members to resolve your problems.
I already create 2 bank accounts in the Bank Accounts Tab
I use the v18.1 at that time when I set those up. And just like I said, there are no such Starting Balance menu when I go to Settings. So, I input the beginning balance on the COA.
in version 18.1 the starting balances had to be set in the Bank Accounts tab itself and not in your COA.
read the guides on setting up your chart of accounts and how to set a control account.
moreover if you are not familiar with something, create a test business and check things before doing the same on your business file.
Sorry for my mistatement about that COA, I input that starting balance on Bank Accounts tab, just like what you said. (It showed on my SS too)
So, with this configuration, that Cash at Bank automatic accounts only show the sum of all my bank accounts? There are no configuration to show detailed number of each bank accounts on balance sheet report? Are there any options so I can show them on report?
Your various bank account balances will be visible by clicking the Bank Accounts tab. Or, on the Balance Sheet, you can drill down by clicking the Cash at bank balance. Or, as I said before, you can create custom control accounts for all your individual bank accounts. Then they will show on the balance sheet.
However, your demonstrated unfamiliarity with the program leads me to suggest you not do that yet. Get to know the program first. You can always move the bank accounts to custom control accounts later. Assigning bank accounts to individual control accounts is a relatively sophisticated step. And yes, I already sent you the link to the appropriate Guide.
