General Ledger Issues


Problem: My trial balance is in balance but when I print my financial statements my balance sheet shows that it is out of balance.  


Problem: I need to make entries into my new fiscal year but I am not ready to close my current fiscal year. Is it okay to make entries in the new fiscal year before closing the current fiscal year and do I need to change my accounting periods to reflect the new fiscal year before making the entries?  





Problem: How far into the next calendar year can I process payroll with out closing my previous year?


Problem: I used the wrong starting payroll check number the last time I processed payroll. Now when I try to process the next payroll I cannot start with the correct starting number. IO needs to change the starting number.


Problem: While my payroll checks were posting, my system locked up, power failed, network went down, etc.
