The value of a financial quantity or value at the beginning of an accounting period.

For example, an opening balance sheet is prepared when a new company is established. It shows the assets, liabilities and equity of a company at a given point in time. The opening balance sheet is of great importance as it shows the initial financial situation of the company and serves as a point of comparison for subsequent Balance sheets serves. It helps to monitor and evaluate the financial development of a company.

The following steps are required to create an opening balance in SAP Business One:

  • Select the start date for the opening balance. As a rule, this is the date of the company's foundation.
  • Give the assets, Liabilities and the equity of the company. Liabilities and equity components are recorded in the liabilities section of the balance sheet, while assets are listed in the assets section.
  • Save the introductory balance sheet. You can call it up again at any time by selecting "Finance > Balance sheets" in the main menu.
  • It is crucial that the opening balance sheet is prepared carefully and accurately, as it serves as a benchmark for future balance sheets and can help to build investor and creditor confidence in the company.
