Starting balances

I am trying to enter my supplier starting balances. If I enter the starting balance as a positive number and check my starting balance report - the figures are shown as a debit balance for my Accounts Payable. If I enter supplier starting balances as a negative number - the figures do not show up on the starting balance report. Help! Also I so have 2 suppliers that have a debit starting balance - how do I enter these?

The starting balance for the suppliers don’t work that way.

In order to enter payable balance to a supplier, you can do that by entering the invoices in the purchase invoices tab.

In order to enter supplier credits, advances or negative balances, you will have to do that in the edit screen for each supplier.
