What if my liability or loan account balance is increasing (instead of decreasing)?

Confirm that the opening balance amount is in the Increase column.

  • If the opening balance is in the Decrease column, you can edit the opening balance transaction and type it into the Increase column.

Make sure that payments are being entered into the Decrease column.

  • When you transfer a payment from a checking account to a liability account, enter the amount into the Payment column of the checking account. This causes the transfer amount to appear in the Decrease column of the liability account.
