  • Manual Entry: If you've already set up your customers, suppliers, ledger accounts, banks, and products in Tigg, adding opening balances manually is just as simple. Navigate to the Configuration module, select "Opening Balance," and choose between Account Opening Balance or Product Opening Balance.
    • Account Opening Balance: Easily add or edit opening balances for customers, suppliers, ledger accounts, banks, and cash. Follow the straightforward steps provided, including specifying the amount, debit or credit designation, and adding reporting tags if necessary.
