Reversing entries in Amicus Small Firm Accounting is easy. Many of the posting programs have built in reversal functions so that all you must do is click Reverse and choose the entry to reverse. Firm Receipts, A/R Write-offs, Firm Checks, Trust Receipts, Trust Checks, and A/P Checks have built in reversal function. For Billing, use the Reverse Bills function.
Follow these steps if a check is cleared in error during a bank reconciliation and you need to put it back on your Outstanding Check List, or if a deposit is cleared in error during a bank reconciliation.
Reverse the check and repost it.
Depending on your accounting method, some or all of the accounts listed on the System/File Balance report are control accounts, and are used to reconcile the Client sub ledgers to the General Ledger. It is incorrect to adjust the balance in your control accounts by posting journal entries because journal entries don't affect Client Files. Work in progress (WIP), A/R and Trust cannot exist without being associated with Client Files.
Therefore, your System/File Balance report will go out of balance if you post journal entries to the General Ledger accounts listed on it (unless your System/File Balance is already out of balance as result of a hardware failure or other system error).
To correct your System/File Balance, reverse the journal entries and then determine the Client Files the adjustment relates to. You might need to discuss this with your accountant. Then post the adjustment to one or more Client Files using the applicable posting program.
Use the Modify Check Layout screen to modify the alignment of the fields on the check stub, body and second stub. Each item of information that prints on the checks corresponds to a field on the check report form. Each field can be moved around on the report form. You might need to modify the layout of the fields if the checks don't align correctly with your pre-printed check forms. The check layout is divided into three sections - the first stub, the check body and the second stub. These sections are described below.
