Opening Invoices and Balances

I’m hoping someone can help me. I am not experienced at accounting processes. Using ERPNext Cloud version.

Is it okay for me to begin entering the opening invoices for suppliers and customers BEFORE I enter the opening balances journal entries? I’m confused on JV entries and want to check with my accountant first.

I need to get the invoices entered so our bookkeeper can go ahead and start receiving payments against customer invoices that are outstanding. Any guidance would be most appreciated!


Absolutely fine.

You can also start with the posting of the real-time invoices and have opening JV / invoices made at a later date.

Thanks, I went ahead and did that and will do my opening balances as soon as the accountant closes our fiscal year books this week. Appreciate it!
