During balance forward the following message may appear preventing you from balancing forward.


Account(s) XXX, YYY, ZZZ have unclassified Asset Balances. These must be zero before Balancing Forward

This is due to at least one asset (and or accumulated depreciation) control account containing a balance in its subaccount 000.
A trial balance, filtered to show subaccounts will display the cause of the problem more clearly.

Resolution

  • If the ledger uses an integrated asset register, users must remove the GL Comparative Balances and Opening Balances for these assets, and relocate them to other accounts outside the Asset & Accumulated Depreciation range.
    Users must also delete current year journal entries against these 000 subaccounts.
    Try balancing forward again.
  • If the ledger DOES NOT use an integrated asset register, users can opt to delete the asset groups. With this option however, users are required to delete existing assets in the asset register first. Please refer to the linked article.
    Try balancing forward again.
  • If the ledger DOES NOT use an integrated asset register, and WILL NEVER do so, users can opt to remove integration of the asset groups via XPA Administration Tool.
    Please note that this process is carried out on ALL of the ledger's existing asset groups, and CANNOT BE REVERSED.
    Try balancing forward again.
