Go to the “Opening balance sheet” section of the “Accounting” menu and add all balances according to your last annual financial statements. Once the red “Balance” line disappears, the opening balance sheet is balanced.
If you cannot find out which account is still missing, the best thing is to take the balance of the last financial statements, go through them figure by figure and check that they have been transferred to KLARA correctly.
You can start accounting in KLARA even if your last fiscal year has not yet been finally closed. KLARA allows you to enter the balances of certain accounts (e.g. cash, bank) of the opening balance sheet anyway so that you have a clean basis for working with KLARA in the new fiscal year.
If you enter balances that lead to the opening balance sheet not being balanced, KLARA automatically saves the difference to account 2975 “Opening balance sheet not balanced”. Once you have the finalised statements, you can enter the final values and this posting will then disappear again.
Your opening balance sheet must be balanced by no later than the change of fiscal year.
