Creating an entry without an opening balance

Hi there everyone,

Would highly appreciate anyone helps in clarifying this for me.
My immediate superior needed to know if we could start a new year (2017) transaction without any opening balance from previous year.
We have some invoices and payments from previous year but what he needed to know if it is possible to create new entry for 2017 without opening balance?

If it is possible, may I get any help on how to do it?

Highly appreciate your immediate reply.

Thanks a lot.
