  • Clio Manage

Additional Information:

This is particularly useful when restricting the Report to a date range.


When you select a date range when generating the Trust Ledger Report, the Opening Balance will show the Trust Balance at the start of that date range.

If you opt to include the Opening Balance when restricting your date range, it will carry over the balance from outside of your specified range to assist in balancing your figures.

If you do not select to include the Opening Balance, your view will be restricted to only display Transactions logged between your specified dates.

Opting to include an Opening Balance without a date restriction will cause the Opening Balance to display as zero dollars as this is the beginning of the ledger.
