How to zero out a fund balance account

Does anyone know if there's a way to zero out a fund balance account without showing false income? My program is an old version of Money Counts so I'm sure there's an easy way to do it, I just can't figure it out on my own. Thanks!

Interfund Transfers

I am not sure what software you are using, but transfers between funds are not considered revenue or expenses. They are Other Financing Sources/Uses. They show up on the Income Statement below the expenses. They will certainly affect your general fund net income, as it should. For your total funds figures, your interfund transfers should have a net zero effect.

If you want to DIY your payroll, I highly recommend you look at using Gusto! It is very user friendly and their support is awesome! Plus they know how to set up and maintain payrolls for churches and nonprofit organizations.

Note: I am a "partner" of Gusto, but as I have told you before ... I never recommend anything that we or our clients have not tried and love =)
