Change to CS Support service hours

Our Support department is closed on Friday, April 28th for a company event. However, limited Accounting CS phone support is available on that date from 9 AM - 5 PM ET due to the approaching deadline for quarterly payroll tax forms.

Links to our most popular payroll tax processing topics are available in the Alerts and notices section on the right side of most pages.

In the Enter Transactions screen, a "Journal entry" type transaction can be setup to Auto-reverse next period. Show me

Auto reverse Journal Entry

In this example, the transaction to be reversed was entered in the 01/31/2012 Posting Period. Once the Posting Period is advanced to 02/29/2012, a reversing entry will automatically appear. Show me


  • If the original journal entry is deleted, the reversing entry is automatically deleted as well.
  • The reversing entry cannot be deleted. The only way to get rid of it is to delete the original.
  • There is not an option to have all journal entries reverse out every period. It must be done on a transaction by transaction basis.
