Starting balances - accounts receivables


I want to add starting balances for account receivables, but while trying to add it, the system by default asking for available credit as shown in below screenshot. and on summary screen also showing it as a negative figure
please help how to add starting balances in accounts receivables.


you need to enter a value in the Available credit field only if you owe money to your customer. else you can leave it blank.

if the customer owes you money, you have to record it as sales invoices and not as starting balance.

read the guide on starting balances.

Thanks for your quick reply.
