QB Issue Resolution:

I’m not sure I understand what you have done

when you book a prepayment, you typically send in a payment ahead of time and you use that prepayment account on the check

then when the expense is to be realized, you do a journal entry moving the amount out of the prepayment account and into the expense account

debit expense
credit prepayment

when you placed the prepayment account on the balance sheet how did you do the transaction?
