Can I set up Monthly Lease payments in advance and Monthly Debit Orders?

    Hi Valerie,

    As everything is date orientated yes you can enter in advance. As long as you do not select all dates in your date range. But your Profit & Loss and Balance Sheet will reflect the correct balance.

    The downside is that when you look at the Chart of Accounts is the immediate balance in front of you is inclusive of all payments entered, but you can double click on that account to open the register to see "today's" balance!

    I actually encourage many of my clients with repayment schedules and varying interest amounts to enter 12 months in advance so they do not have to continuously pull out their schedules to enter the correct details.

    Kind regards,

    Smart idea Sally. As you stated the interest payment will decrease over time and the principal payment will increase so it would be better to enter that information for the entire lease or at least for the current year while you have the information to hand.
