Adjusting Entry

If financial obligations are entered incorrectly, or if obligation amounts or name records are changed after they are entered as obligations, you must complete an adjusting entry. These adjusting entries ensure that a complete and accurate history of each financial obligation is maintained.

A voided payment allocated to an adjusting entry will be displayed in this snap-in.

Creating Adjusting Entries

  1. Click the Adjusting Entry snap-in in the open session.
  2. Add a new record.
  3. Enter all applicable information in the fields provided.
