Negative Bank Account Balance

Question: When I go to the balances tab, I show an account negative because it looks like it is only going back one year on transactions. However if I go to the journal tab it goes back as far as it should and everything looks good.

Answer: The Balances page should be calculating account balance “since the last statement balance that was entered” on that account. Note that a common issue is that if a user never enters a statement balance, NPT assumes the account balance to be zero on the day before the first transaction in that account.
