Reversing a Journal Entry

First, we'll want to locate the journal entry to reverse. A simple way to do this is to go to Accounting > Miscellaneous > Journal Entries and use the filters to find the posted entry you would like to cancel. 

Once you're on the journal entry, click reverse Entry.

A modal will pop up giving you a few fields to choose:

Reversal Date:

  • Specific: If selected, you can choose a specific date to reverse the entry. 

  • Journal Entry Date:  If selected, the date of the journal entry will also be used as the reversal date.

Use Specific Journal: Choose the journal you would like to use, though if this field is left blank, the journal of the journal entry will be used for the reversal. 

Reversal Date: Select a date for the reversal to be reflected on in the journal.

When finished, click reverse

This will remove the journal entry from the journal, at which point it can be edited and posted again, if needed.
