Beginning Balances for Jobs

To enter beginning balances for jobs, click Job Beginning Balances on the General tab of the Maintain Jobs window. You can change the beginning balance of a job at any time.

If you have entered transactions that should be applied to job costing using another Beginning Balances window (for instance, Maintain Vendors), you will need to enter them again. If you have used transaction windows to record your invoices and payments and applied them to the associated job, do not enter the beginning balances for that job again. These amounts have already been applied to the selected job.

Job ID: You can select a different ID by highlighting a job from the Job list.

Beginning Balance: If the job uses phases, you must enter the beginning balances using phases. If any of the phases uses cost codes, then you must enter beginning balances using cost codes too.
