BAS lodgement doesn't appear to register

Hi all,

Firstly forgive my naivety in accounting terminology and process, I'm a small business owner with a simple set-up and just need to get my GST payments sorted, everything else is straightforward enough.

I created a BAS lodgement back in Jan for my first instalment of GST, which was ok, and then made the payment using the 'GST payable' account.

However, now I come to create my 2nd lodgement for March, it's showing a credit of the 1st amount paid, rather than starting back at zero. I assumed the lodgement would create the liability and then paying it would clear that liability.

Can anyone tell me what I've done wrong?

Thanks.
