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.

Use the Initial Open Items dialog to enter transactions that will not affect the bank account balance but are needed for reconciliation purposes only. In other words, the transactions you enter in this dialog were already accounted for at some point in the account balance, but they are not listed with the other transactions available for clearing in the reconciliation. This dialog is typically used to correct or enter outstanding transactions from previous reconciliations that were completed in your previous accounting application.

Do not use this dialog to add checks or deposits that have never been recorded.

Choose Actions > Reconcile Bank Accounts or Actions > Reconcile Impound Bank Accounts and choose Edit > Initial Open Items.
